Pastor Josh Weidmann

Pastor Josh Weidmann traveled to the land of Israel in 2012. Although he has extensive Bible training and knowledge, he found himself frustrated at his lack of knowledge about the historical context of different destinations around Israel. He resolved never to experience the lack of insight for himself or anyone else on being spiritually and practically prepared to visit Israel in the future.

Josh returned to Israel a few months later with his Bible and a three-ring binder full of writings by Dr. Merilyn Copland, then former Professor of Bible, Theology, and Archaeology at William Jessup University

He studied numerous sites around the land of Israel that ignited the vision for Prepare for Israel. After his return, Josh connected with Dr. Copland and they later co-authored He Walked with Us, an in-depth review of over 25 historical sites around Israel that can still be visited today.
