Dear Fort Friends and Family,

For the past several years you have heard me teach on biblical archaeology at the Fort or at churches or colleges. You have seen my many photographs of ancient biblical sites in ancient Israel and have heard me explain how they relate to the Bible. Because of your interest the Fort sponsored a trip to Israel in May of 2016 with 40 participants. It was a great experience for everyone. Many said it was the best trip of their life. Others said it was life changing. We were all blessed by our fellowship and came home with a fresh understanding of Scripture.

Now that we are back sharing our 2016 Israel experience, many are now asking "When is the Fort going to have another trip to Israel"?

I am happy and excited to announce that the Fort will again sponsor a trip to Israel. The dates are May 21-June 2, 2018. You are invited to journey with us to experience the biblical sites and the cultures of our Bible for yourself.

Dr. Steve Notley will serve as our guide. He is not only a wonderful leader, teacher and author who has a passion for participants to know God, but he lived and studied in Israel for sixteen years. Steve is a professor of Biblical Studies at the New York City campus of Nyack College and is a gifted teacher who will explain many academic and spiritual applications as we visit biblical sites throughout Israel. Emmaus Educational Services will be managing the administrative aspects of the trip. 

The Fort leadership and I are very excited to offer this unique travel and ministry opportunity to you. I hope and pray you will be able to journey with us to fellowship and study our Bible in the land that Jesus called home. 

Please note that before making the trip available to the public the Fort received over 100 inquiries regarding the 2018 Israel trip. Given this high interest, you are advised to submit the Emmaus online application as soon as your circumstances allow. Space is limited to 52 persons. 

In His Service,
Michael Lane
Director of Education

Testimonials

  • "The Israel trip was my first outside of the U.S. (not counting Mexico and Canada ). It is hard to imagine a higher quality experience than the one you and Steve put together for us. I feel deeply grateful for the effort you and Steve put into the whole program. Talk about an easy trip ... I didn't have to do anything logistically. This fact made it very relaxing and allowed me to reflect and be inquisitive which is how I learn best. Steve's knowledge, discussions, and speculations made the experience rich for all of us on the trip. An element of the program that I particularly enjoyed was the flexibility of schedule. Several diversions were well worth the time. The accommodations were incredible – especially in light of the trip cost."
