Low-Contact Israel Trip in 2022
There’s still time to register for BEMA Israel “Low Contact” 2022.

There are two items of importance. First, please make sure you watch our orientation video BEFORE registering.

Please know this trip is specifically designed for those who are unable to partake in our “full-contact,” physically strenuous trip in August 2022. The low-contact trip involves much less hiking and is a little cooler, but it will also be a different experience. If you are able, you will want to wait for our full-contact trip registration to open in the fall. Our full-contact trip includes 7–12 miles of hiking and 1,800+ feet of elevation change each day in what can be at least 110-degree desert heat. It is not for the faint of heart — but it is an enriching and rewarding experience. (If you would like to see the “full-contact” orientation for the sake of comparison, please find that video here.)

The orientation is almost an hour long, but it is designed to be informative and comprehensive; if you’re interested in going on the trip, we ask that you watch it in full to make an informed decision. We will be releasing information for our Turkey trip and our “full-contact” Israel trip (both in 2022) in the months to come.
GTI Tours, our travel agency for the trips, will be handling all registration and payment details. Once you’ve watched the orientation above and you are ready to register, see more details and register for the trip. Get your seat while it’s still available!

Note: Israel requires incoming passengers to be fully vaccinated upon arrival.

Sharon’s Story
This is Sharon.

She lives “on the Wirral, across the Mersey from Liverpool.” (That’s in the UK for the uninitiated.) For a while, Sharon had been in a dark place and did not feel a hunger to dig into the Text. It was the same old stuff, it didn’t make sense, and it didn’t even sound like “good news.” The Bible had become tainted by the tools she was given growing up in the form of weighty theology.

Then she found BEMA. In a matter of weeks, she found a renewed sense of urgency to dig into the Text, looking for any excuse she could use to sit down with another episode to learn more tools for studying God’s Word. She was seeing things through a new lens. Theology not only started to make sense, it even became attractive again.

Almost two years in, Sharon is caught up with the podcast and listening to new episodes as they are released. She is reading some of our recommended books, and she has sought out additional voices and resources that continue to open up the Bible to her in a refreshing way. The more she uncovers the complexity of the Text, the more fascinating it becomes.
