Canada Israel Scholarship for Christian Young Adult Leaders (CISL)

Have you always dreamed of going to Israel?
This is your chance to experience firsthand the land where Jesus walked.
Tour Date: Summer of 2025

ICEJ Canada has developed a Scholarship Program for Young Christian Leaders including a packed twelve-day adventure of a lifetime.

We will be selecting six (6) qualified Canadian Young Christian Leaders between the ages of 18-32, who have never been to Israel, to experience the Holy Land where the Bible comes to life. You will learn about the history and current events while doing practical Hands-On projects.

We have designed this scholarship program to guide you in your understanding of this great land and its people, and to immerse you in the culture of Israel as you experience it for yourself. Your journey will begin 5+ months before departure as we equip you to understand the history, complexity and the culture you will be stepping into. We will cover issues like Anti-Semitism, Biblical Zionism and give you tools to understand and wrestle with these important topics. Our hope is that this extra study will give you a greater glimpse into God’s redemptive plan for Israel and make your journey into the land even richer and more breathtaking.

The Journey

This program will take you on a journey to important key Biblical sites and give you the opportunity to engage with respected teachers and guides as they share Biblical insights, history, current events, and explain true Biblical Zionism. Not only that, but you will also have an opportunity to embark on volunteer service experiences that foster relations between Jewish, Christian and Arab communities.

The Community

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem is a truly multicultural organization uniting Christians around the world with a mandate to bless and stand with Israel. The Arise Canada 2023 Scholarship Program and Summer Tour Modeh Ani (Give Thanks), follows this example and will give you the opportunity to make new friends and experience the land of Israel with young people from all over Canada.
