You're Invited 2023
For a decade Daily Audio Bible has been experiencing the land of the Bible as a community! You’re invited to come, February 6–February 19, 2023!
Standing in the places God used people just like us, has expanded my relationship with the Scriptures in ways that literally nothing else could. I love seeing that happen with those who join us.
If this trip is tugging at you, I encourage you to take the leap. Space is limited and fills up fast. We’ve spent a lot of intentional time on the details so you can enjoy, and soak in all that God has for you in the Promised Land. The Bible will literally come alive in ways you’ve never thought possible. I hope to welcome you at our first dinner on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
