Israel Experience 2021: May 30-June 10, 2021 Israel Experience registration is now open. In 2006 Brian experienced the land of Israel and studied the biblical text in context for the very first time. It opened his eyes and changed him forever. He knew then he had to lead others to experience Israel with the Bible as their guide. Since then, he has led hundreds to walk the ancient paths of the Scripture and to discover the root of their faith in Christ. It is the experience of a lifetime and worth the investment. Please consider this amazing discipleship adventure. You can register at bayarea.church/israel.
