Past. Present. Future.
Travel with Tom and Leighann McCoy for a 10-Day Tour of Israel
February 16 - 26, 2024
Join Pastor Tom McCoy (Thompson Station Church) and his wife, Leighann McCoy (author of Spiritual Warfare for Women and Teach My Heart to Pray), in Israel. Put your feet in the footsteps of Jesus as we trace His path when He lived among us. See for yourself the faithfulness of God as you witness the fulfillment of prophecy in Israel’s thriving culture today and capture a vision of the future unfolding when we visit with Jewish settlers. This tour will have a special emphasis on prayer as we pray where Jesus prayed, witness God’s faithfulness in keeping His promises, and partner with Him as His purposes and plans continue to unfold.
