In this episode, we will learn about the seven churches mentioned, unpack the promises and warnings Christ provides, and find out what you can see in those cities today!

May 25, 2022

Visiting Israel is not just a look into the past - it is a glimpse into what God is doing today. For the many travelers who visit Israel, they get the opportunity to experience God's Word come to life. They get to walk where Jesus walked, see the lands of Abraham, and reflect on the stories of Moses. But God's Word isn't just stories of the past, they are words of transformation in the present. Steven Rogers visit to Israel transformed his relationship with the Lord. Not only did he end up writing a book about his experience, but he also found himself working through forgiveness for past wrongs. In this episode, you will get to learn about the many sites in Israel and how you can continue to pursue a deeper relationship with the Lord each day.

155: Finding A Christian Church In Israel

155: Finding A Christian Church In Israel

May 18, 2022

Did you know that less than 2% of the people living in Israel are Christian? That can make it extremely hard to find a place of worship while you are there on holiday. Not only that - if you google churches in Israel - you will likely find a lot of markers for places of Biblical significance (ie. where Jesus turned water into wine or where Jesus multiplied the fish and loaves to feed over 5,000 people.) So then, how do you find a group of believers to worship with in Israel? In this episode I cover a number of options and share a few resources to help you find a worship service on your next trip.

To access CTN's list of worship services, sign up for our email list. This PDF will be one of many the resources on our online platform launching in late June of this year. This platform will let you find trips with other believers, plan trips and invite others, and make new connections - among other things.
