How it All Began
In 1986 two travelling overseers in Canada decided to organize private group vacations to the bible lands, for friends who were fellow Witnesses. At that time the brothers started using 'Discover Bible Lands' to name their group tours on a non commercial basis.
As you can imagine, being in special full time service it became difficult to meet the demand for these bible lands tours, and our brothers decided not to continue organizing them. Therefore in 1992 these brothers passed on the privilege, as well as the name 'Discover Bible Lands' to another long-time serving Canadian elder who was part of their team. Our brother would also carry on arranging these tours on a non commercial basis.
Our brother was aware of licensed travel operators who arrange JW faith-based pilgrim tours. This legal provision would allow customized JW private tours to be arranged for Jehovah’s Witnesses only. Many of our brothers and sisters expressed their desire to vacation with fellow witnesses only, and the need for regular tours to be organized became the norm. There remained a strong appetite for our unique itineraries, and the name 'Discover Bible Lands' continued! As a result, hundreds our brothers and sisters would continue to enjoy life changing travel experiences when visiting many biblical heritage sites.
Our determination has always been to help our brothers & sisters enjoy the trip of a lifetime at the lowest price! How do we succeed in doing so? Thousands of hours are invested in negotiating reasonable prices because of our strong relationships with our travel operators.
What is our winning formula for a successful JW Bible Lands Tour? It is all about balance. We provide competitively priced packages that include high-quality accommodation and comfort. Our itineraries maximize our time to see as many sites as possible, with days-off in between. Fun activities are planned with plenty of time to relax and unwind is a must!
Since 1986 our tours were primarily for Jehovah’s Witnesses located in Canada. However, it became apparent that many of our brothers and sisters from all parts of the world would like to join us. It has been a joy over the years to experience how united we are as a global brotherhood.
In 2012 and 2018, further succession planning would ensure the continuation of Discover Bible Lands® tours. The objective remained to provide a supplementary educational resource and experience at a reasonable price.
In November 2019 Discover Bible Lands Inc. was formed.
Our DBL family has grown to over 40 of your brothers and sisters from all parts of the globe!
