Travel with BICS staff and students in the Bible Lands


The Institute is committed to an integration of classroom instruction in the Bible and personal exploration of the lands of the Bible. Past Bible Lands Seminars have toured Egypt, the Sinai, Jordan, Israel, as well as Turkey, Greece and Italy.

Currently, our preferred BLS is a two-week tour of Israel. By standing at the crossroads and walking the ancient paths (Jeremiah 6:16), students are impacted by the reality of the Lord of glory moving in space and time. They are given the opportunity to appreciate God’s activity in history and challenged to lay hold of the prophetic significance of the signs of the times which anticipate the return of Christ.

Dates & Itinerary

Due to the current conflict, our next scheduled trip to Israel is in 2025. Information about the student-only trip to Turkey and Greece is available here. 

BLS 25

March 19 – April 2, 2025. Led by Vice President Tuttle, Mr. Steve Ross, and President Andy Rice, we’ll embark on a 15-day spiritual journey to walk where Jesus walked and experience the Bible coming to life as we visit many incredible locations like Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho, and the region around the Sea of Galilee. Other highlights include visiting the Dead Sea, Masada, and Armageddon. This trip will be more than a vacation or a check on your bucket list, it will impact how you read, connect, and understand the Bible and can change your life forever. Check out the details here!
