Dave Bechtel served as the senior pastor of Bethel Church in Richland, Washington, for just over 30 years. Linda Bechtel was the women’s ministry director at Bethel for most of those years. Bethel’s purpose aligned with their own: “making disciples.”  Dave loves the Scriptures and is looking forward to teaching from them during this trip, sometimes at the very setting in which the words were originally spoken.  They lead their second trip to Israel and Jordan with ICJ. 

Ken Carter's professional Italian opera background and Sherry Carter's Northern Italy heritage make them a natural for hosting this ultimate Italian tour. Rarely do you find the Cinque Terra, Amalfi Coast, Lake District, the mosaics of Ravenna and Isle of Capri in single itinerary  Combine that with the anchor cities and the full 15 days in Italy is a bargain  travel investment and a long remembered visit to the most exiting country on the globe..

Pastors David and Kathi Cannistraci  invite you to join us for our fifth group tour to one of our favorite places in the world—The Holy Land. It is only here that Jesus walked, healed the sick and raised the dead. It is only here that you can visit the sites of both His crucifixion and resurrection. This is the land of Abraham, King David and the apostle Paul. This trip comes at a special time, as we will be celebrating Israel’s 70th birthday together. Trips like this create lifelong relationships and spark a unique appreciation for God’s Word that only comes by “being there.” 

Berean Christian High School in Walnut Creek California continues its annual pilgrimages to the Holy Land under leadership of their principal, Dr. Nelson Noriega.
