TOUR OVERVIEW:

Biblical Greek island cruise to the Early Christian sites of Athens, Corinth, Neapolis, Berea, Thessaloniki, Philippi, Crete, Ephesus and Patmos! We spend 10 days together on our Christian cruise and tour. We include all of your Bible related tours (excludes tours of the beach or non-Biblical stops), all meals (except one dinner and two lunches) and beverage, ground transportation, hosting, the cruise itself, the inter-Greece flights, professional guides and private bus, and your tips. The life of the Apostle Paul and his companion Apostles will come alive as we visit the beautiful Greek islands that have the most significant Biblical importance to our lives. In addition, we visit the quaint island of Patmos, where the Apostle John received the book of Revelation. From this island we will have a view of the coastline, of what was then Asia Minor and home of the actual Seven Churches of the Revelation. You will also have an opportunity to see the most intact site – Ephesus. It is here that a statue of the worshipped Diana has been discovered at the base of her temple. Join Pastor Bryan as he brings the Bible alive in the life and exploration of The Word. The cruise and tour will start at $3,499 per person, sharing a double room. You can upgrade the cruise portion to an outside cabin or junior suite. The airfare has an add-on from Bozeman on United of $1,970 per person. You are welcome to book your own air and join us!

I loved it!  It truly was the adventure of a lifetime.  My son had a wonderful experience, too.  Thank you for making the trip kid-friendly!

Loretta & Jacob S.

Everything was wonderful, and first class. Hotels and ship were top of the line. Our Greek Orthodox guide, Sayat was fantastic. So much knowledge and history and enthusiasm! Pastor Lutzer’s teachings were much enjoyed and enlightening. Rebecca is a sweetheart.

I enjoyed this tour so much, that I’d like to do it again sometime, maybe in the Spring season. PS…our group enjoyed each others’ company so much that we are having a reunion party coming up on Monday the 21st!

Monica H.

To see Biblical sites in which Paul ministered as well as see sites of some of the churches of Revelation was an opportunity of a lifetime. The Bible teaching was absolutely outstanding. Of course, being on a sailing ship was delightful as well. I highly recommend a Footsteps of Paul.

OUR ASSURANCE:

1. Through the use of The Word, we trust that once…

Through the use of The Word, we trust that once you have returned from our Christian tours, you will have gained a deeper knowledge of the scriptures and the multiple layers of teaching and truths that are inside each.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

2. You can be assured an experience like our previous participants…

You can be assured an experience like our previous participants, who have gained an appreciation of how God uses everything for His glory and for the purpose of furthering knowledge and understanding. You will see this as you encounter the geology of the land, the geography where events actually occurred and the archaeology that may (or may not!) still exist. Furthermore, through the remaining people in the land, the practices still in place and demography that have endured.

Colossians 1:20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

3. Further, our assurance is received that through The Word…

Further, our assurance is received that through The Word; the teachings you will be exposed will solidify the truth which you and your family have been taught by seeing, touching and hearing the scriptures each day. We assert and firmly believe Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

4. You and your family will experience…

You and your family will experience the oneness of the body of Christ during our trip.
