Welcome to the 2016 Biblical Education Tour homepage. This page provides information about the annual Biblical Education Tour offered by The Salvation Army Central Territory to active officers, retired officers, soldiers and employees. Officers are notified of their eligibility status in May of the year prior to the tour. Soldiers, retired officers and employees of the Central Territory are also invited to participate in this exciting experience as room becomes available. For more information about the tour, navigate through this site using the menu at the bottom of the page.
The Salvation Army began offering a Biblical Education Tour in 1989. A group of Pilgrims has travelled each year since to either Israel or Greece and Turkey. Each group has returned home recounting the many blessings they experienced on this tour.
In 2016 the Biblical Education Tour will return to Israel with an optional extended tour to Rome. This tour brings to life the richness of scripture as you visit sites where Jesus ministered and the New Covenant was revealed. As we travel through this amazing country each day offers countless opportunities to deepen your spiritual walk. You will walk the paths and enter the cities and towns recorded in the Bible affording you the opportunity to gain a deeper biblical and historical knowledge as well as a better understanding of current events.
