ISRAEL 2020 TRIP INFORMATION

Thank you so much for your interest in touring Israel with The Church of Eleven22. We have decided that in time, length and mission the scope of the Israel trip has changed for 2020. The trip in 2020 is taking on a different look and going in a different direction as a small group of people are already going to Israel as a mission trip/tour hybrid. The tour that you are interested in, however, will be offered again in 2021! 

We are still finalizing dates, but the trip will be early spring 2021 and registration for the 2021 trip will open next summer in 2020.
