Help Me Dig At Shiloh

Dear Readers,

Let me begin by thanking you for visiting my website, Bible Archaeology Report. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d have over 1 million views of my articles.

This is something I’ve never done before, but I’m writing to ask you for your help.

As you may know, in addition to being a full-time pastor, I’m also completing a Masters degree in Archaeology and Biblical History from Trinity Southwest University. As part of my course requirements, I must do four weeks of excavation.

From May 21 – June 2, 2022, my wife and I are planning to volunteer with the excavations at Shiloh, Israel led by the the Associates for Biblical Research ( We’re raising money to help cover the cost of this expedition (including $2100 USD/$2800 CAD each for accommodations, transportation and meals in-country, and $2000 CAD each for airfare).

Obviously, on a pastor’s salary, these costs are a stretch. However, we’re trusting the Lord to provide through people like you.

Would you consider giving to help make this trip a reality? You can do so through our GiveSendGo fundraiser:

Please note that any money given will be need to be a considered gift and not a donation; we are not able to provide tax-deductible receipts for these gifts.

Here’s a 20-minute video that gives a good overview of ABR’s excavations at Shiloh, the discovery last year of the city gate and a gold star, and the potential discovery of the platform that housed the tabernacle (which ABR hopes to confirm this season): 

Thank you for continuing to read my blogs and for considering a gift towards our trip to dig at Shiloh, Israel in 2023.

Grace & Truth,
