Early Christian Pilgrimages

Raise your hand if you’ve been to the Holy Land or hope to go sometime soon! Israel is in a touring boom right now. Thousands of Christians every year are making their way to walk in the footsteps of the Messiah Jesus and heroes of the faith. The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry has been taking tours to Israel since the 1970s. But did you know that people have been making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land for thousands of years? This week we’ll learn which early Christians made their way to the Holy Land and why.

Today we go and stay in beautiful hotels and drive on modern roads but our brothers and sisters years ago had a much harder journey—that’s dedication! This time of looking back in history will help you appreciate touring the modern land today. And hey! If you are thinking of going on a tour, why don’t you join us? There’s still room on our October tour!

Up to Jerusalem Tours

Join us for our Up to Jerusalem tour this October! For more than 40 years The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry has been hosting tours to Israel. This life-changing time will leave you in love with the land and Jewish people while giving you a deeper knowledge and view into Scriptures and our Messiah!


Apples of Gold: “Return to Me,” says the Lord

Two young men asked Zvi for directions to a synagogue while he was waiting at the bus stop. They were bewildered that the last synagogue they went to was closed. The men were looking for a group of men to pray so that “God could hear them.” As Zvi explained what Scriptures say about men praying directly to God, a crowd approached. Hear how God used Zvi to share the truth of God’s Word.

Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.

More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.

As a faith-based ministry we cannot do this without the faithful giving from partners like you! Right now, if you partner with us with a gift of $25 or more we will send as our thanks the newly redesigned and updated It Is No Dream by Dr. Elwood McQuaid!
