It is with great excitement about God’s love for the people of Israel that I cordially invite you to join us for The Joshua Fund’s next “Prayer & Vision Trip to Israel.” It will be held May 13-24, 2011 and includes admission to the 2011 Epicenter Conference.

If you have never been to the Holy Land, it is hard to describe what a profound spiritual effect such a journey can have on you and your family. You may have heard others say God’s Word seemed to “come alive” in a new way when they walked where Jesus walked, from the shores of Galilee to the Mount of Olives and into the streets of Jerusalem. Well, it’s true, and I believe our 2011 Israel trip will allow you to experience this for yourself and intensify your desire to walk more closely with Jesus Christ.

If you have been to Israel before, this trip will be a great opportunity to deepen your understanding of how powerfully the Lord is moving there. And this tour is like no other. You will visit The Joshua Fund’s warehouse and participate in a practical ministry project to bless the poor and needy. You will have the opportunity to meet with and pray for local pastors and ministry leaders on the frontlines of the faith. You will participate in a special two-day conference to study God’s Word and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. I will also teach at key locations and answer your questions about the future of the epicenter.

Joining me to speak at the 2011 Epicenter Conference — held at the International Convention Center in Jerusalem — will be Kay Arthur of Precept Ministries, Pastor Ray Bentley of Maranatha Chapel in San Diego, Anne Graham-Lotz, Pastor Heitzig of Calvary Chapel of Albuquerque, and others. We will teaching through the Old Testament “Book of Joel” verse by verse, chapter by chapter, as the Lord speaks through the ancient Hebrew prophet, calling His people to gather the elders, consecrate a fast, assemble the congregation, pray, and return to a true and holy walk with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. We’ll also study Bible prophecy, geopolitical trends in the Middle East, and learn more about how to build a global movement of followers of Jesus Christ willing to bless Israel and her neighbors, come what may.

Space is limited, so please prayerfully consider joining us. You’ve read about what the Lord has done, is doing, and will do in Israel. Now step into the story. We would love to see you there!
