Christians have been taking pilgrimages to the Holy Land for thousands of years and the desire to “walk where Jesus walked” is as strong today as ever. For decades, groups from the Houston's First family have travelled to Israel and other biblical locations to see the Bible come to life where it all took place.
Now, these trips are hosted primarily by church members Peggy Bain and Drew Walters and a staff member guest host. Other ministries sometimes take trips specifically targeted at the ages or stages of life they serve, hosted by their respective staff members.
This page serves as a central hub for any upcoming official Houston's First trips to Israel and other biblical destinations. Watch here and in other church communication channels for opportunities for you to see stories of the Bible come to life!
