Hume Loves Pastors

We get it.

Because of you, we are allowed the honor of spreading the Gospel as an extension of the Church—the Church you serve with passion and dedication. 

So we want to show you our support, not only by loving all the precious souls you send our way, but also by offering you some opportunities to rest, relax, recharge, rejuvenate and recover from the pressures of being tireless shepherds.

If you have any questions, please let us know!

Israel Study Tour

January 9-20, 2023
COST: $2,800

Come join us for a life-changing experience, walking alongside other pastors as you go through an in-depth study of (and first-hand experience in) the land of Israel.


It is our heart at Hume Lake to continue to find innovative ways to invest in the ministries of the churches that we partner with. Hume’s vision statement says that we exist to spread the gospel by working with the local church, and with that in mind, years ago we developed a new study tour to Israel that we have been offering to our churches as a way to continue to invest into their ministries (visit the Israel blog from the 2020 Pastor’s Israel Study Tour). We know that the time a pastor has walking the land of the bible will not only enhance their understanding of the text but will have a ripple effect throughout their congregations as well. During these trips, we continue to see the life change that happens when you are able to let people experience the land first hand.

Special Deal from GTI

All said and done a typical trip to Israel with GTI costs around $4,000 and we know that this is completely out of the reach for most people in ministry. Through our partnership with GTI tours, we have been working to make this tour extremely affordable for people serving in full-time ministry by lowering the cost. GTI has offered to reduce the cost to $2800 for pastors and youth pastors, and $3,300 for their spouses who would like to go as well.

A True Study Tour Experience

Understand that this will be no vacation but an in-depth study tour with a mandatory pre-trip curriculum. Our desire is for this study tour to not only be an investment in you by Hume, but all also an investment by your church as well. We would love for your church leadership to come alongside you in prayer, possibly financially, and generally support you by helping send you on this trip. Each person interested in going on this trip must fill out the form below in order to be considered.
