Acclaimed the world over by tour leaders, educators, and Bible scholars, International Group Ministries proudly offers unique pre-tour / on-tour literary resources. Each laminated resource is designed to deeply enhance the educational and spiritual impact of your journey along the "ancient path."

Regionaltour is a tour ministry of authentic Bible sites, Bible history and geography that link the tour with Jesus' ministries. The tours connect groups to the land, its historical and geographical roots, and texts of biblical faith. While many things change the face of the land with culture, politics and borders, it is the land itself that changes least. This reality may have prompted Cyril of Jerusalem to write, "The land itself is the fifth gospel."

Regionaltours are interfaced daily with the BLR (Bible Lands Resource) for pre-tour and on-tour references. The laminated life-time BLRs were edited by Bible scholars, have 10 color panels of biblical data, and fold neatly into a flight bag for easy frequent referencing. They are lifetime companions.

For over 25 years IGM Tours has customized academic and pastoral tour ministries that focus on authentic Bible sites, explore the essential places of Jesus' public ministry at Galilee and Jerusalem, and show the connections of geography and history to the land and the Word, and do it all with scholar guides specially skilled to bring life to the touring. The tour resources are a big feature in Holy Lands, Steps of Paul, and Christian Passages in India tours.

Regionaltour will celebrate its 25th year in 2009. It is a fresh departure from the usual Holy Land tour that rushes between crowded church shrines and souvenir shops. It provides time to feel, think and absorb. It avoids the blur of rushing for the better prize of blessings. The tours connect groups to the land, roots and texts of biblical faith.
