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
Fort Wilderness Ministries

Testimonials

  • "The program was excellent and I will recommend it highly for anyone who wishes to tour Israel. Wink, you and Steve did a superb job of planning and organizing the tour, and your guidance throughout was fantastic. You both showed enormous concern for our safety and health. I appreciated the interesting way in which you integrated information about the geography, topography, history, archaeology, religions, and social dynamics of the region. Your presentations were scholarly, very interesting, and infused with good humor! I also appreciated your flexibility of plans which allowed us to tour places not on the original itinerary. Lodging and meals were very good, and the service at the hotels was friendly and very good. All of the fascinating field trips and your presentations along the way have really deepened my understanding of Scripture. Almost any book I turn to in the Bible now speaks of a place we have walked through or at least viewed. It is very exciting! Thank you again for making this wonderful adventure possible for our group."
