Greetings!

Hello from Bethlehem Bible College!

We are pleased to share with you all that has been transpiring with BethBC as of late! Several neat opportunities have opened for us, and we are deeply grateful for your support and encouragement along the way. Our students have been active in outreach toward specific marginalized communities in our society, specifically those in our community effected by cancer as well as refugees in the region. 

You'll also want to read about Rev. Dr. Yohahnna Ketanacho's endeavors in Egypt as he shared about Palestinian Christian theology. It is a blessing for us to share our part of the world with others, which is why I'll encourage you to come and see the Holy Land for yourself through Bethlehem Bible College's Ta'Shuf Tours! Take a look at the video we've included and start planning your next adventure to the Holy Land!

Many blessings to you as you remain steadfast in the Lord,
Rev. Dr. Jack Sara
President
Bethlehem Bible College
Rev. Dr. Yohanna Katanacho, Academic Dean of Nazareth Evangelical College, one of Bethlehem Bible College’s branches, gave a course about Palestinian theology at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo.

Dr. Katanacho said that it is his role to build academic relations, especially with academic institutions, as the Academic Dean of Nazareth Evangelical College.

BethBC students made this a Valentine's Day where everyone was feeling the love! As they are preparing to go and serve in Jordan alongside Iraqi and Syrian refugees, they decided to coordinate a fun and creative way to raise funds that will be used to purchase food parcels, toys and other basic amenities for the refugees they will be visiting. 

At Bethlehem Bible College it is our hope that everyone who hears about us and supports us can come to visit this beautiful land we call home. We often have people looking for more than just a packaged tour that will enable them to visit the Bible College as well as to see all of the important sites central to our faith. It was for this reason that we established Ta’Shuf Tours – so you can “Come and See”!

At Ta’Shuf Tours (which really does mean “come and see” in Arabic) we have worked with both individuals, families, and groups to plan their ideal Holy Land Tour. Many people contact us to arrange to stay in the BethBC Guest House, where they find clean, inexpensive rooms while helping to support the College ministry. Our Tour Guide Program has produced knowledgeable, well-trained guides who can work with a small family as well as a large group. Our staff work to make your transitions as smooth as possible, and we help you plan an itinerary that fits your schedule and energy level.

Visit our website, tashuftours.com , to see our list of upcoming trips! We have a number of options in conjunction with Christ at the Checkpoint 5. At Ta’Shuf Tours, we welcome you to…
Come and See!
Someone so dear to my heart who has been battling cancer for years, told me once:
“People are usually sick and tired from their daily routine, and they want some change, you see? Mankind takes everything for granted. Well, for me it is a dream now to have my routine back: to be able to wake up on a normal morning and prepare my own cup of coffee!”

  • Pray for those effected by cancer, specifically our students Kathrin and Niveen.
  • Pray for those who are grieving the loss of loved ones, especially Hala Gneim, Shireen Awwad Hilal and Alaa Hazboun.
  • Pray for health and strength for those effected by the recent outbreak of flu and sickness.
