Each year, we travel to one or more biblically significant parts of the world. We learn about and walk in the footsteps of Jesus, the apostles, Old Testament heroes, and church leaders who have shaped the Christian world that we know today.

Among others, we’ve explored the countries of Israel, Turkey, Jordan, and Italy, as well as many cities found in the book of Acts, the Epistles, and Revelation such as Ephesus, Rome, Patmos, Sardis, and Laodicea. We’ve also visited the ancient sites of Pompeii (Italy) and Petra (Jordan). The Biblical Study Tours also feature great fellowship with believers from all over the world, as well as teaching, insights, and perspectives from Douglas and various experts who assist in leading these tours. Each tour is educational, inspirational & emotionally bonding! Many who have taken part in one tour are eager participants in another.

Here are the next three tours:

  • PART ONE: June 4-10, 2023 – Global Smyrna Meeting (7 Churches of Revelation)
  • A huge part of the biblical story, especially in the N.T., takes place in Asia Minor (modern Turkey). After Israel, Turkey is THE country to visit if you want to connect with biblical history. That’s why you are invited to the 2023 Global Smyrna Meeting. The one-week program is the most comprehensive meeting and visitation of the Seven Churches of Revelation (Rev 2-3) ever organized! Please take a peek—maybe you’ll be able to join us. Click  PART 1 for information about part 1 of the tour (the Global Smyrna Meeting). But please don’t register or pay at this site.
  • PART TWO: June 10-13 – Extension
  • We will take three more days after the meeting to visit seven more sites in Turkey: Miletus, Didyma, Colossae, Hierapolis, Antalya, Perga, and Pisidian Antioch. For the itinerary, click  PART 2.
