Imagine getting to walk where Jesus walked. Share communion at the same place He did with his disciples. Float in the Dead Sea. Experience baptism in the Jordan River and a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee. In addition to exploring Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Galilee, & Tel Aviv, you'll visit historic Old Testament locations from the stories of Abraham, Moses, Elijah, and David.
With Encounter Israel you don't have to imagine, you get to experience it all.
Crossroads offers Israel Trips so that you can grow deeper in your faith while being surrounded by a community of others doing the same. You will be shepherded by a Crossroads pastor on the ground, have an Israeli guide to answer your questions, and a Crossroads worship leader to make the experience even richer.
It's important to understand that Encounter Israel is not meant to be a vacation or a fun tour trip. It's an opportunity to push your spiritual boundaries. It will be an investment of your time, money, and energy.
These experiences will include an opportunity to participate in The Israel Story as we care about developing relationships with you and making our Crossroads Community feel smaller through the friendships you’ll develop before and after the trip.
Applications are accepted in the order they are received, and the trip may fill up prior to the last day to register. You are not on the trip until your application is submitted and accepted, and your $500 deposit is paid.
This trip costs approximately $5,500 per person. This cost includes a double-occupancy experience (staying with your spouse or a roommate), economy airfare, housing, meals, transportation, and tours.

Encounter Israel Trips are invitation-only for Blue Team members.
