… a different kind of travel
After living 16 years in Israel, Craig and Colleen Dunning opened Discipleship Travel LLC as a way to help others study the Bible on location, whether that be Israel, Greece, Egypt, Jordan, Cyprus, Rome, or Turkey. A trip to the Lands of the Bible with Discipleship Travel LLC is more than completing a checklist of locations visited; it is a discipleship opportunity, as you walk the pages of the Bible.
Discipleship Travel LLC is an accredited and insured travel agency that specializes in group travel that has served a variety of small and large churches, private groups, and educational institutions since its incorporation in 2012.
Our goal is to give each traveler the best possible discipleship experience, thus our company name. The thought of recruiting and leading a group to the Holy Land can be intimidating, for sure. Our commitment is to reduce the stress for group leaders by doing everything except recruiting, … but we also provide helpful tools for that, too!

client reviews …
Craig Dunning is extraordinarily well qualified – by reason of education, expertise and experience – to arrange and lead genuine study trips to Israel. He did graduate study of that land in that land, he lived and traveled and taught in the country of Israel for many years, and he has rich experience in touring and teaching the land. But his most important qualification is his capacity and passion to help travelers better understand the God of Scripture by better understanding the narrative of God’s “mighty acts” in history, most of which were played out on the stage of the little land of Israel (Ps 150:2). The better you understand that stage, the more compelling will be the drama. If you are looking for a well-planned and richly profitable time of study and growth in the land of Israel, I highly commend to you the services and ministry of Craig Dunning.
Traveling with to Israel with Dr. Craig Dunning and Discipleship Travel LLC was truly a trip of a lifetime. Being in the field where David fought Goliath as the story was read from scripture brought us beyond just a tourist experience. It was amazing to stand along the bank of the Sea of Galilee where Jesus made breakfast for his disciples after the resurrection. Sitting on the steps leading up to the Temple and reading the Psalms of ascent moved us past simple tourism to a moment of personal reflection. Just traveling to the different sites from the Dead Sea to Jericho, Jerusalem, Nazareth and the other places gave perspective you can only get by being there. I highly recommend this trip.
My Israel experiences led by Mr. Craig Dunning, from start to finish, have been well-planned and well organized. He doesn’t simply lead a trip, but a faith enriching experience! His first-hand knowledge of scripture, history, people, places and archeological digs in the land is exceptional, and helped our people connect the dots for unwavering faith! I watched the faith of our church leaders, as well as skeptics in our group, become deeper than they ever imagined possible. Mr. Dunning will lead all of our teams in the future.
I highly recommend Dr. Craig Dunning to lead your next trip to Israel. His expertise and knowledge made my trip, truly a trip of a lifetime. I appreciate his knowledge and ability to explain thousands of years of history in an easy to understand and cohesive manner. Going to Israel is the closest you can come, here on earth, to your faith being made sight as you stand where Jesus stood, walk where the prophets walked and worship where the first Christians worshiped. This trip was the best decision I could have made for my personal spiritual growth. I gained a greater understanding of the geography and context of the Bible after a few days in the country than I had in years of study. The trip is well worth the time and money. You will not find a better value in terms of price and quality of trip.
