roger poupart


Roger and Kim have been married for 29 years and have been blessed with three children. Roger has been privileged to serve as a senior pastor for over 23 years, teaching and equipping God’s people. This trip to Israel will be his fourth, and he can think of no better way to bring the Bible to life than to have you walk where Jesus walked, and to have you see and experience the things you have read before, but will never again see in the same way after you yourself have sailed on the Sea of Galilee and been in the places that are found in the pages of Scripture.

Roger and Kim are looking forward to spending this life changing time with you in the Land of Israel as we deepen our relationships with the Lord and each other!

Walt and Brenda McCord


Walt and Brenda have been married for 35 years and have three adult sons, two lovely daughters-in-law, and six grandchildren. For over 33 years the McCords have been involved in pastoral ministry and Bible teaching, including 15 years at Moody Bible Institute. Currently Walt is director of development at T Bar M Camps and Retreats in New Braunfels and Brenda is Director of Women’s Ministry at Wayside Chapel.

The McCords have previously led 24 tours to Israel, 6 tours to Jordan, and 1 tour to Greece & Turkey. In the summer of 2000, Walt spent over 6 weeks in Israel training to lead Bible study tours and was a licensed “religious” tour guide in Israel from 2005 – 2010. Walt and Brenda love to see the Word of God transform people’s lives as they experience the land where our Savior taught and lived His amazing life.
