Through generous funding from Passages Israel, students at The King’s College have the opportunity to spend ten days in Israel with Drs. Harry Bleattler and Dru Johnson. Students will see both the ancient biblical sites and modern cosmopolitan centers of Israel and will gain firsthand familiarity with the geography behind the biblical story of Israel. They will also hear lectures from nationally recognized Israeli and Palestinian experts on military conflicts, banking, and peace negotiations, as well as from church leaders and political theorists.

Eligibility: All King’s students are welcome to apply. See FAQs.
