2018 Holy Land Tour


Have you ever wanted to visit the haunts of favorite Bible characters–to see the Jordan River, sit on the Mount of Olives, stand atop Mt Carmel, or sail on the Sea of Galilee? Well now is your opportunity. Charles Byrd and Lonnie Melashenko are teaming up to give you the richest possible Holy Land experience.

Charles Byrd has lived in Israel and Jordan, and He and his wife Karen have led a number of Holy Land tours. You don’t want to miss personally experiencing biblical locations, and seeing how  your Bible reading comes to life.

We are excited to bring you this exceptional opportunity. We are planning some exciting things for you so that this tour will be one of your fondest memories and certainly one you won’t want to miss.


As one of our most active and supportive Thunder hosts, Elder Lonnie Melashenko, Former Director/Speaker for Voice of Prophecy and current Revivalist for the Columbia Union Conference, will be joining us as our keynote speaker. He and his wife Jeannie will be leading out in daily devotionals, Sabbath worship service, and a very memorable communion service by the Garden Tomb.

Lonnie has also led many tours to the Holy Land over the years, the last one being in the fall of 2013. We are looking forward to sharing this spiritually rich experience with you.

Check back often as we will be posting tour details, dates, and important information as it becomes available.
