Bill and Lyn Vanden BoschRev. Bill and Lyn Vanden Bosch have served 38 years in pastoral ministry and have been leading pilgrimages since 1999. They have been to the Holy Land 20 times—including studies at Jerusalem University College, trips with Ray Vander Laan, and the numerous groups they have personally led. Bill has a Doctor of Ministry Degree in multicultural ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary.

KhalilKhalil Abkar Haddad also joins us from Nazareth! Khalil is a Palestinian Arab Christian from the city of Nazareth in Galilee. A Holy Land tour guide since 2012, Kahlil specializes in English-speaking Christian groups. He holds a bachelor’s degree in communication and political science, and master’s degrees in political science and comparative religions—all from the University of Haifa. A former editor of a daily newspaper and publications editor for the Mossawa Center (center for Arab citizens’ equality in Israel), Khalil is active in many social and political fields related to the existence of the Palestinian people—especially Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land. He feels blessed to have found Eman, a Christian woman to build a family with, and together they are raising their seven-year old son, Abkar.

Rashid HannaRashid Abu Hanna joins us from Nazareth with his team! Rashid began his career in Nazareth in the hospitality industry, and later, along with his wife, opened his own travel agency in 1993. As a Christian Arab, Rashid understood the importance of Nazareth to Christian pilgrims. Merging his travel experience and beliefs, he began providing incoming tourism to Israel and has since become a pilgrimage specialist and big-events organizer. Today, Rashid Travel & Tours Ltd. is a well-known travel agency in and around Israel, providing travel services that exceed client expectations.
