President Mark Ballard
In June of 2001 the Lord opened the door for Cindy and I to make our first trip to Israel. It was a life changing experience. I cannot fully explain what it is like to walk where Jesus walked. We want to invite you to join us on this amazing tour. We will pray in the Garden of Gethsemane, worship at the empty Tomb, read the Beatitudes on the same Mountain Jesus first delivered the greatest sermon every preached. We will take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, visit the West Wall, walk the streets of Jerusalem, and so much more. This investment of your time and money will enhance your personal walk with Christ and your ability to communicate His Word to others. Please join us on this exciting adventure.
Pastor Lito and Beth Lucas
Beth and I are so excited for the privilege to tour the Holy Land with you! Walking by the Sea of Galilee and standing at the Pool of Bethesda allows you to embrace the Word of God with new vision and insight. Experience the beautiful region, rich history and priceless heritage as you pray at the Western Wall and walk the streets of Jerusalem. This investment will enrich your relationship with God and increase your understanding of the Jewish people and their beautiful Promise Land. Join us in Jerusalem for a wonderful time of fellowship and a unique journey where Christ walked some 2,000 years ago.

Pastor Gary & Ingrid Crawford
Scripture teaches us that "together we are better" (Ecclesiastes 4:9). In keeping with this, we are excited to join Pastor Daniel and Carolyn Morris (Whispering Valley Church, Nashville, TN) in leading an educational experience in Israel. Having served together in ministry for over eleven years, we received God’s abundant favor in ministry and missions. In 2021 we will journey together to share the Holy Land with you, not just by visiting significant sites but by experiencing spiritual growth and transformational change. Join us and walk in the footsteps of Moses and Jesus. It will change the way you understand the Holy Land, the way you read your Bible, and you will learn why scholars refer to this journey as the "Fifth Gospel."
Our 2020 trip was wonderful beyond our expectation and this trip will be even more so as we step out in faith and trust the Lord to direct our steps and reveal Himself to us in new and significant ways.
This is our personal invitation to be a part of a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in faith, as we travel through the Holy Land where Jesus accomplished His mission of redemption that continues to change us and the world forever.
Pastor Daniel & Carolyn Morris
Carolyn and I have always had a desire to travel to the Holy Land to see the Word of God come to life for us. We would like to invite you to join us along with my friend and former pastor Dr. Gary Crawford, his wife Ingrid and an exciting group of believers as we take this journey and retrace the footsteps of our Savior.
We anticipate this ten day trip to be life changing for all of us as we walk where Jesus walked and follow the lives of His disciples and the patriarchs of the Old Testament. I believe we will encounter moments in the Holy Spirit as we travel through this ancient land. Our time together will be filled with Worship, fellowship, fun and the study of God’s Word led by myself and Dr. Crawford. We’ll experience times of praise and worship at the very locations where our faith originated. We hope that you will pray and ask the Lord for His guidance with regard to your joining us on this trip of a lifetime in September of 2021.
Messianic Rabbi Zev Porat
Messianic Rabbi Zev Porat, founder of Messiah of Israel Ministries, was born in Israel into a Sanhedrin’s family and raised in Bnei Brak, one of the most Jewish Orthodox cities in Israel. His grandfather, Rabbi Pinchas Porat, was a holocaust survivor who later became one of the heads of the Sanhedrin in Israel. Certified as a Jewish rabbi, Zev never truly experienced the presence of God and drifted away from Judaism. But that all changed when Zev had a number of supernatural encounters that brought him to faith in Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus). Led by the Holy Spirit, Zev founded Messiah of Israel Ministries, one of the very few Messianic congregations actively preaching the Gospel publicly in Israel today. Over the many years, Messiah of Israel Ministries has been reaching holocaust survivors, IDF soldiers, discipleship programs (Messianic congregations), and much more with the truth of Messiah Yeshua.
Zev teaches from a unique Biblical Hebrew foundation perspective of our faith in Yeshua, and how we can prepare ourselves as the Bride, to meet Yeshua the Messiah in the second coming. Zev is the Correspondent and Co-Host of Freedom Friday with Host, Pastor Carl Gallups, and has been heard nationally and internationally on Alfa Omega TV (Europe), CBN TV (Europe), Skywatch TV (USA), Prophecy in the News TV (USA), CBN TV (Europe), Asian Christian Network TV, EFR Christian German TV and Radio, as well as many other radio and television programs globally. He has also been interviewed numerous times on the TV program, "Why Israel," hosted by Rabbi David Naggi, which airs on Alfa Omega TV, TBN, as well as other networks in Europe.
Zev earned a Rabbinic Sanhedrin certificate from the Ponevezh Yeshiva (school for Rabbis) in Bnei Brak, Israel. Glory to Yeshua, after Zev got saved, he returned the certificate to the Yeshiva. Later, Zev became an ordained Messianic Rabbi (Pastor). He leads many Messianic house groups in Israel, and daily ministry outreaches in Synagogues and Mosques throughout Israel, which has resulted in many Jews and Arabs coming to the knowledge of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) as Lord and Savior. He has shared the message of Yeshua through the Biblical Hebrew Foundation around the world, including
the underground congregations in China, assisting in the establishment of over 100 congregations in Asia.
Carl Gallups has been a senior pastor since 1987. He is also a critically acclaimed Amazon Top-60 best selling author. He is a frequent preacher at Bible and prophecy conferences, and a frequent media guest commentator on TV, radio, and in print. He serves on the Board of Regents at the University of Mobile (AL). He leads in global missions endeavors and has preached on three continents and in four different nations. Carl is a graduate of Florida State University (B.Sc.), New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and the Florida Law Enforcement Officers Training Academy.
Brandon is the Associate Pastor of Redeemed Ministries Church in Cleveland, Alabama, and he is also the Director of the ministries’ Healing and Recovery Center, a nine month in-house intensive drug and alcohol rehabilitation center and discipleship training program.
Brandon has been involved in addiction ministry and counseling for years and has counseled with hundreds of men to help them understand the dangers and root problems behind the perilous world of chemical addiction.
Brandon is a weekly co-host of Spiritual Encounters with Pastor Caspar McCloud; also a weekly commentator and frequent guest host of Freedom Friday with Carl Gallups. He has been featured as a biblical commentator on Infowars Nightly News, Bill Martinez Live and others.

Dr. Susan Diamond
Dear Friends, One of the highlights of my spiritual life was making pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1991. To say that the Bible came alive is an understatement! From journeying to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born, to standing at the shores of the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus spent his ministry teaching, preaching and healing people...to the streets of Old Jerusalem, the Mount of Olives, and the Garden Tomb, where we remembered his final hours, I experienced my faith in a life-transforming way. I have participated in three such pilgrimages, and each one was special in my life and faith. Over the years, I have pondered whether I would take one more journey with friends to the Holy Land. I believe that time has come. It’s time to look forward, and I want to invite you to join me in May of 2023 for a spiritual pilgrimage to the Land of the Bible. This brochure will share some of the highlights of what that pilgrimage will look like. Each day, we will not only visit the sites that undergird the story of our faith; we will have special worship experiences that you will never forget! I hope you’ll join me in 2023!
