Announcing our upcoming 11th “Holy Land Adventure,” February 13-21, 2021 – $3,891 from New York
Bill Rudge Ministries invites you to come with us on an unforgettable trip to the land of the Bible. This will be our 11th journey to the Holy Land and we have personally customized what we believe to be the best tour at the best price – maximizing your time for a truly life-changing experience. Bill also has led numerous mission teams to many countries. Each tour has been outstanding and we will do everything possible to make this another incredible trip!
The Holy Land Adventure will be filled with ancient biblical history, culture and spiritual blessings as we walk where Jesus and the patriarchs, prophets and apostles walked. Traveling through the land of the Bible – where God became flesh and where Jesus taught, healed, died and rose from the dead – will provide a deeper understanding of Scripture. It will come alive before your eyes as you encounter the people, places and events of the Bible. It has been said that we read the Scripture in black and white, but upon visiting the Holy Land our eyes will see in color. Bible scholars say a pilgrimage to the Holy Land is equal to one year of Bible college.
For example, no longer will the word, Capernaum, just be a place mentioned in the Bible. It will be a place you have seen with your eyes and walked upon with your feet.
Instead of just reading about accounts such as Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan River, you will see the Jordan and have an opportunity to be baptized in it or watch others doing so. Imagine yourself going on a nature walk to ancient ruins in Dan, sailing in a boat on the Sea of Galilee where the storms were calmed, floating in the Dead Sea, ascending by cable car to magnificent Masada, exploring the Ein Gedi oasis and Judean Wilderness, roaming the tranquil countryside and shores of the Sea of Galilee and the Mediterranean, seeing Jesus’ birth place and exploring a cave where it may have actually occurred, walking the vibrant markets and streets of Jerusalem, sharing Christ’s love with Jews and Palestinians, discovering the most recent plans to rebuild the Temple, attending a Messianic service in Jerusalem, having communion near the site where our Lord was crucified and rose from the dead, entering the Garden Tomb, standing on the Mount of Olives where Jesus is coming back one day, and many other sacred experiences.
A trip to the Holy Land with Bill, Karen and Dr. BJ Rudge will be a spiritual pilgrimage, an exciting adventure and a fruitful mission. Tour members will visit traditional sites as well as explore places and have adventures rarely visited or experienced by tourists. We will also bless Russian Immigrant Jews, Palestinians and Arab Christians with clothes, supplies and some of our books and CDs.
You will never be the same! The scenes, smells, sounds and spiritual experiences of those moments will be etched in your memory. Fun, fellowship and new friends are also highlights of our tours.
This trip is much more than a vacation. As well as being a pilgrimage and adventure, it will also be a mini-mission trip. Some who have gone on previous Holy Land Adventures with us raised funds by selling sandwiches or baked goods after church and sending letters to family and friends.
I know that one of the major concerns about going to the Holy Land is SAFETY. If you talk to anyone who has made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land they will tell you that they felt safer, and the people more friendly, than in their home town! Maranatha Tours is one of the best Holy Land Travel companies and we have booked Olga, one of the best guides in all of Israel.
Once our team is assembled we will begin sending you biblical and other resources to prepare you spiritually and physically. We will also have a few meetings before the trip with those from our area and phone conversations or e-mail briefings with those who live outside our area.
We would love to have you come with us on this inspirational, faith-building and life-changing journey. Ask a family member or friend to join you. Don’t delay! Space is limited. We would like to limit the size of our group to 25 or less to allow more time to walk where Jesus walked and learn what Jesus taught. We are able to visit more sites with longer stays (almost 1/3 more than the regular 40 person tours). (The price on the brochure reflects a $100 discount for the first 25 people who sign up.)
Special blessings await you. We pray (and fast) that everyone who goes with us will have a profound spiritual experience and also have a positive impact on one or more people they meet in Israel and Palestinian Territory. At the end of this extraordinary tour two things will most certainly be changed, you, and your understanding of the Bible.

Israel is becoming a very popular destination so we want to lock in our hotels and airfare as soon as possible. We are here to serve you and make this the best trip of your life! Come along and enjoy experiences that are timeless and memories that will last a lifetime!
