The Family Teams Israel Tour


The Family Teams Israel tour is a completely unique experience because it combines two life-changing experiences into one.

You will have a faith-building encounter with the land of the Bible, where you'll walk in the footsteps of Jesus in Galilee, discover the roots of our faith in Jerusalem, and deepen your relationship with God as you travel throughout the Holy Land.

And, at the same time, you'll see firsthand the way family is done in a culture that has been building multigenerational families for centuries.

This means you will not only walk where Jesus walked; you'll also have a Sabbath dinner in the home of an Orthodox Jewish family and learn from local Messianic, multigenerational families living in the heart of Israel.

Along the way, we will lead you through the many lessons we've learned from our time in Israel and with Jewish people, sharing the ways we have applied these lessons to our family.

About Your Guides

Jeremy and April Pryor met in Jerusalem as students in 1997. Ever since then, they’ve been studying and teaching about modern Israel, ancient Hebrew culture, and the tools modern Christians families can learn from the Jewish people. The Pryor family has lived in Jerusalem for several years and now frequently travel to Israel with groups to introduce more families to the wonder and life-changing wisdom of the biblical paradigm of family. In addition to the Pryors, each tour will have a licensed Israeli tour guide who is fluent in both English and Hebrew and very knowledgeable concerning both the biblical and modern history of Israel.

Your Hosts

Jeff and Alyssa Bethke live in Maui, HI with their 3 kids Kinsley, Kannon, and Lucy. They are the other half of Family Teams and will be joining in different capacities on some of the Family Teams Israel tours! While the Pryors and the certified Israeli guide will be doing most of the structured teaching and touring, for the trips the Bethkes are along for, they will be joining in on the activities, teaching as well, and taking on various other hosting responsibilities. Please note: the Bethkes will not be joining the tour in January 2024.
