Pastor Beau & Renata Lee
Pastor Beau & Renata Lee have had a love for Israel and the Jewish people since before they met. One of their main life-missions is to encourage the American Church to love and support Israel. They do this through fun, experiential trips to Israel so other believers in Jesus can experience their Jewish roots by immersing themselves in Old Testament and First Century context. Exploring numerous archaeological sites continues to give travelers literally rock solid evidence of the reliability of the Scriptures. The sights, sounds, and smells help travelers to imagine biblical stories coming to life right in front of them. Travelers leave with solid understanding of the Old Testament timeline including Abrahamic Covenant, prophesy leading up to the exiles, prophesies regarding the return of Israel, end-times prophesy, geography, and rich cultural experiences that aid in strong hermeneutical Bible study.
Pastor Beau Lee serves as the President of Israel Bible Trips, and is the main Bible teacher on all tours. He is a gifted Bible teacher with a unique God-given ability to help students of the Bible understand confusing prophetic passages. He is a pro at weaving biblical themes and connecting the dots between Old and New Testaments. Time and time again, we’ll see how the Bible showcases God’s unending covenant and love for His chosen people, the Jewish people.
Pastor Beau is the Senior Pastor of Hope Hill Church, an exciting multi-ethnic church in Manhattan, NYC, and is the author of Jesus Plus Nothing Equals Salvation.
