Matthew Crouch, who serves as chairman of TBN's global family of faith-based networks, said that touring Israel and the Holy Land "is a life-changing experience like no other. To walk where Jesus walked and to stand in the land of the courageous people of Israel — God's people — will profoundly impact you for a lifetime."

Participants on TBN's Grace Israel Tour 2016 — or G16 for short — will personally experience many of the sites and locales made famous by Scripture, including the most notable places of Jesus' life and ministry: Bethlehem, Nazareth, Capernaum, Old Jerusalem, the Mount of Olives, the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan River, the Upper Room, Gethsemane, Calvary, and the tomb where Jesus was buried — and where Scripture declares that He rose again.

The Rev. Prince, who will lead special Bible study sessions and worship services throughout the tour, said that for those participating in G16, "it's going to be life-transforming. You will always be able to point back to this time, to Israel, where something happened for you."

Matthew Crouch emphasized that especially for Christians, a trip to the Holy Land is about more than an exciting tour. "When my parents, TBN founders Paul and Jan Crouch, began escorting groups to the Holy Land over forty years ago, it wasn't just for a great vacation," he said. "They were taking seriously God's promise in Scripture that He would bless those who bless His people Israel. And every group TBN has taken over the years has gone, not just to experience the land of the Bible, but to actively support, pray for, and bless the land of Israel and its people. We're looking forward to continuing that mission with our G16 tour."
