(RNS) Dallas pastor and religious broadcaster Tony Evans, his wife, Lois, and some of their children visited the Holy Land in 2018, touring the sites believed to be those of Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection.
In addition to some 700 fellow pilgrims, including supporters of Evans’ Urban Alternative ministry, they brought along a camera crew for the 10-day journey.
“We decided, well, how can we make this trip go further than just the time we are there and the group we’re with?” Evans, pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, said in an interview on Thursday (Nov. 11). “So we decided to film it. And after filming it, we said, you know, there are a lot of people who’ve never been to the Holy Land who would love to go and love to experience what we experienced.”
