CJ HistoryThe journey begins in Israel - and continues for life!™

A Covenant Journey tour of Israel is unlike any other, as it is designed specifically to motivate you to affirm and deepen your Christian faith and identity through an experiential journey and educational experience of biblical, historic, and modern Israel, providing you with the ability to advocate for Israel upon your return. 

History of Covenant Journey

The development of Covenant Journey began in February 2011.  In June 2011, a series of meetings were held in Israel with many government officials, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to discuss our vision of bringing Christian young people to Israel to strengthen their Christian faith and equip them to be goodwill ambassadors for Israel.

In September 2011, the template tour for Covenant Journey was initiated. The tour for non-students, who fully paid for the trip, combined both the biblical and historical sites along with modern Israel. In May 2012, the tour template continued to be developed, while adding students who paid the full cost of the trip. In 2012, we began internship opportunities in Israel.

In 2014, the first Covenant Journey experience was launched for Christian college-age students with leadership potential. Due to the demand to expand our ministry beyond college students, Covenant Journey began providing spiritual and educational tours for groups and churches.

Student Tours – Covenant Journey 

Covenant Journey is a life-changing immersive experience in Israel designed for Christian college-age students to strengthen their Christian faith and introduce them to the Holy Land. Limited to Christian students generally from 18 to 26 years of age, this tour is highly subsidized by private donations to make it affordable to qualified applicants. The selection process is competitive.

The Covenant Journey tour is only for Christian college-age students who (1) have leadership potential and (2) have some level of support for or interest in Israel. Applicants pay a nonrefundable $25 registration fee. Upon acceptance, the applicant pays only $500 within a specific time to secure the seat.

Group Tours – Covenant Journey Travel

Covenant Journey Travel provides an unforgettable, life-changing experience in Israel. The Holy Land tour was designed with a bold vision to create a unique Israel experience that will strengthen your faith and inspire you to be a goodwill ambassador for Israel.

Unlike many Christian tours, you will discover the vibrant intersection of ancient and modern Israel from a biblical, historical, political, security, business, technology, science, and trade aspect. This experience will allow you to contextualize Israel’s role as a land of Judeo-Christian values and democracy standing in a sea of extremism and radicalism in the Middle East.
