We started bringing students to Israel in 1974, but our compassion and concern for Israel has deep roots in Scripture. God promised Abraham in Genesis 12:2-3 that He would bless His people and the world through them.
Baptists for Israel Institute (BII) is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 independent Baptist organization. Since its founding, our program began as a summer volunteer/internship, but since then has expanded into a study program as well. The school offers a nine-month internship program for undergraduate and master’s students, and a summer internship program. Our students study and work as volunteers right on a kibbutz beside the Sea of Galilee. We offer two-week study seminar trips at various times throughout the year. These seminars are for anyone who desires to know more about the land of Israel, its people and the Bible.
