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 October of 2019 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 2019 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, May 15-26, 2021. 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 many inquiries regarding another 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 50 persons. 

In His Service,
Michael Lane
Director of Education

Testimonials

  • "Can't thank you enough for your input in putting together our Israel adventure! Phil and I were absolutely amazed how beautifully the whole experience went. The schedule was full, but not overwhelming. Steve was incredibly flexible about tucking in extra sites as time allowed and interest was shown. He is an absolute treasure when it comes to guiding a group. Every site added to the richness of my understanding. I would hate to have missed any of them. Some of my sweetest memories where I was most touched were when we got our first glimpse of Jerusalem at sunset, with the driver playing the song " Jerusalem " on the bus. I was also incredibly moved to touch the Western Wall and have a chance to pray there. I hadn't expected such emotional responses in those places! One of the best parts of our trip was the timing. The Land was green and lush, with wild flowers growing everywhere. I think it really helped our group that Phil had us meet weekly before the trip and go over basic knowledge of the Land. That way we felt engaged before we even got there. The booklet you folks put together was also a great resource. To sum it all up, this was the trip of a lifetime for me! I was totally blessed by the experience and am sensing such new richness when I read the scriptures. Thank you for making it all possible. I know we will all be recommending the trip to our church family!!"
