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.

—Brian Hardin

Please contact  us with any questions. Transportation costs to the hotel are included for those arriving on February 7, 2023. If you are planning to arrive prior to Feb. 7 let us know and we will help with those arrangements and reserving the extra hotel night(s) for you. You will then receive an invoice for the extra night(s) and transportation from the airport to the hotel in Ashdod.  If you are booking your own flights, in order to use the bus transportation to and from the airport you will need to arrive earlier than the group on board the flights being arranged by us, on February 7, 2023 (try to allow at least 1 ½  hours to allow for delays) and at the same time or after the group departs on February 19, 2023. Those flights can be seen during the registration process.

  • How much walking will we be doing?

    We average three to five miles of walking per day. This walking is done mostly in small increments throughout the day and you have frequent times to rest. It’s recommended to start walking a little each day now to prepare. And properly “break in” the shoes you plan to wear. Avoid breaking them in there!

  • What if I have special needs, with food or mobility?

    Our heart and goal is for you to go! Please inquire for any specific requests, needs, dietary restrictions, etc. We will let you know if there is a solution.
