Experience God as you travel through the lands of the bible
Safe and easy tours to Israel, Jordan, Greece, Turkey, & Italy
"Taking a trip to the Holy Land was a bucket list goal for me. I accomplished that goal by going on a trip with CHLS. However, the trip was so amazing my goal became much bigger. I plan to go back annually and take as many people with me as I can. Thank you CHLS for facilitating such a great trip and allowing me to walk in the footsteps of Jesus. I’ll never be the same!"

I recently completed my third trip to Israel. Sixty-Five New Yorkers learned about and experienced first-hand the Land of the Bible. Having gone twice with the Center for Holy Land Studies I can tell you no other tour comes close to the depth, personal attention and care given by CHLS. They treat you like family because you are. You will do more than see the sights; you will get the depth, background and application to Scripture that will make you want to dig even deeper into God's Word. If you have been to Israel with another tour group, you need to go again with CHLS. If you have never gone, what are you waiting for? Go with the Center for Holy Land Studies! They are THE BEST!

"I have been twice to Israel with CHLS and both were great trips. Even though I graduated Bible College and have been in the ministry for 45 years, the study trips to Israel gave me a greater understanding of the history and geography of the Bible lands. It helped me to understand so much better what I read every day in the Word of God. I am definitely planning to go again and take our district family."
Author & Pastor
"The experience I had with CHLS was absolutely amazing. I have been to Israel on three trips. The one with CHLS was so superior to the other two that I would never want to take a group back without planning it through them. The trip had a profound spiritual impact on me as a pastor and on the people of our church."
Lead Pastor & Network Founder
"I have always dreamed of visiting Israel but little did i know that God would bless me with being able to take my first trip with the Center for Holy Land Studies. CHLS made everything about my trip rewarding, every part of the trip was done with precision, safety and professionalism. I look forward to many more trips with the Center for Holy Lands Studies."
How are we different?
When you travel with the Center for Holy Lands Studies (CHLS), it's not just a trip- it's an experience! Not only will you get amazing photo ops to fill your scrapbook, you'll also discover a deeper understanding of what was said in the Bible and what the authors meant by it.
Every tour is hosted by a highly qualified tour guide, and a Bible teacher or ministry leader. Together, these guides bring the Bible to life right before your eyes as you visit authentic historical sites and explore them through the four-part CHLS approach:
Culture - Discover, in original context, how the culture and language of the biblical story are interwoven in ancient society and daily life.
History - Find out what was said and done, and what was meant by it, in the biblical and historical context.
Land - See geographic landscape come to life, allowing the land to have its own narrative in Scripture and biblical story, and is as much a character itself as any person in the text.
Spirit - Explore the common beliefs of the biblical time period, and how the spiritual climate impacts our understanding of the story.
