TOUR OVERVIEW:

ALL CRUISE CABINS ARE SOLD OUT!

Travel along with Pastor Todd Smith of Crossroads Community Church and trace the Apostle Paul’s missionary journey through the Mediterranean in 2020! This 11-day journey includes 7-nights on a luxurious 5-star sailing vessel. Follow the historic routes of the Apostles as they delivered the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Experience the genuine locales of the books of Acts, Philippians, Thessalonians and Ephesians!

Embark in Thessaloniki, and travel to Philippi, Neapolis, and Kavala (where Paul, Silas, and Lydia lived). You will even be able to see Paul’s prison cell! Explore Athens, where Paul penned many iconic messages. Visit the Parthenon, located atop the ancient Acropolis. Partake in a Bible study on Mars Hill – where Paul delivered his inspired message about the “Unknown God” to the Greek philosophers. Travel to the site of Corinth, where Paul, Aquila, and Priscilla labored making tents. Walk through the doorway of the synagogue and see the bema where Paul often taught. Set sail through the Aegean Sea! Explore the famed island of Patmos where John received and wrote the book of Revelation. Cruise to the site of Ephesus, the destination of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and one of the seven churches of Revelation. Stop on the quaint islands of Amorgos and Spetses, and on the prominent island of Mykonos – one of the Mediterranean’s liveliest hot spots!

Venture on this Biblical voyage in the utmost class and style! Drift through smooth, warm waters on an elegant vessel offering luxurious cabins. Kick back and relax in hammocks or indulge in the refreshing pool. Enjoy ample space for devotion, reflection, enriched fellowship, and impeccable sunsets. Enjoy pampering by the top deck crew as they “hoist the sails” and pull-up the lines daily. Discover the vantage point of Paul and the apostles as they sailed these same waters with the Gospel!

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.

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.

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.
