For twenty five years,
Mike has lead pilgrimage tours
to Israel, Palestine, Greece, Turkey and Italy - explaining to believers and to seekers the life of Jesus, and the growth of the first Church.
He has been widely appreciated for the ways in which he combines spiritual leadership, pastoral care, and scholarly insight for these journeys, opening up the stories of the Bible with a gentle challenge to engage more deeply with Scripture.
has made more than twenty trips to Israel and Palestine - leading pilgrimage tours, but also for personal research and writing
he has friends across the divides - among Israelis, Messianic Jews, Muslims, and Christian Palestinians
as a scholar, Mike has read widely concerning the evidence for the attribution of the different "holy" sites - and willingly shares these insights
his tours include times of worship,
"down time", professional explanations
by a licensed guide, spiritual
reflection, and (optional) mini-lectures; and are open to those of all faiths and none
he is the designer of an innovative tour following the growth of the early church
in Greece, Italy and Turkey
Unfortunately, recent tour plans were disrupted by COVID.
