The 2007 Israel Study Trip is now open for registration.  This year Professor Andy Snider and Dr. Trevor Craigen will be leading the trip.  While this trip is primarily designed for seminary students, there are limited openings for “friends of the seminary.” 

The dates for the trip are May 14, 2007 to June 3, 2007.
This trip has several exciting features:

• Nearly Three Weeks in Israel
• A Day of Digging at a Working Archaeological Site
• Special Lectures
• Daily Instruction from the IBEX Faculty
• Several “Free” Days in Jerusalem for Personal Exploration

The cost of the trip this year is $3,250.  This price includes all airfare and travel expenses, hotels, instructional materials, and most meals.  Payment will be due in two parts in February and April.  Non-students (including seminary wives) must pay a $500 deposit to reserve a space. 

Also included in the trip cost are:

Four Units of Seminary Credit for students

  • Two Units for the Spring Geography of Israel Class.  The Tuition for the class is applied directly to the cost of the trip.
  • Two Units for the Summer School Field Studies in Israel course.
  • Course Credit can be applied to M.Div or Th.M Programs - See Prof. Swanson (dswanson@tms.edu) for details.


Please remember that this is a fairly rigorous field study program.  If you are not exercising regularly, you should begin a walking/exercise regimen now!

If you are interested in the trip please call or email Prof. Swanson (818-909-5643 or dswanson@tms.edu) for additional details.  Email or fax (818-909-5680) the registration form to make a reservation.  To register, send $500 by check or money order payable to The Master’s Seminary. The balance of $1375 will be due on February 1, 2007, and $1375 on April 1, 2007. Additionally, please fax or mail a copy of the inside of your passport as well.  Send all items to the following address:

The Master’s Seminary
Attn: Prof Dennis Swanson
13248 Roscoe Blvd
Sun Valley CA 91352

TMS Students and Alumni have first priority for making reservations for the trip; however, there should be some limited room for “immediate” family members and “friends of the seminary” to also participate.  If you are even considering going on the trip please begin the process of obtaining a US passport.  If your passport is scheduled to expire on or before September 2007, you need to renew your passport for this trip.  If you are not traveling on a United States Passport, please check with your consular office for VISA requirements to travel to Israel.  Be certain to advise your consular office that this trip is being done in conjunction with your seminary studies.

The itinerary for the trip will be finalized in the next few weeks.  For those not living in Southern California, there may be additional travel expenses to make the connecting flights to join our group, again, please contact the office for further information.
