A mission of unity, harmony and reconciliation


Following the 2015 historic outreach of COGIC leaders to the Ethiopian Community in Israel and the 2016 mission, COGIC leaders and members will travel to Israel again in 2017 for a further outreach and visits. Missions are the essential purpose of the church demonstrating God's love by meeting the needs of others. It is our pleasure to invite you to join us.

Programs at a Glance

In this one of a kind trip to Israel we will meet with local Ethiopian Community, their leaders, teachers, academics, researchers, government and officials.  In addition, you will have an opportunity to visit some of Israel's most renowned sites, including the Western Wall, the Temple Mount, Mount Carmel, the Mt of Beatitudes and much more.


On this tour you will follow the footsteps of Jesus from His ministry in Galilee to His final days in Jerusalem. You will visit all the biblical and holy sites in Israel. You will hear on location bible teachings from our hosts and teachers at the actual sites being described. And, you will participate in an informative fact finding discussions, panel discussions and presentations throughout the land.
