Join Pastor Cary Wacker as we study our way through the teachings of Christ utilizing geography, archaeology, and prophecy. This small private tour visits the Biblically significant areas of the Apostles Paul, John, Timothy and Peter. However, you can add an optional extension to Rome to visit the important sites of the Apostle Paul and the Early Church. Pastor Cary has thought of everything you will need for a full and memorable journey!

You will have ample time at the beginning, traveling at a leisurely pace. All meals in Greece and Turkey are included, as well as all transportation, Biblical tours, and hotels in central locations. This journey has just the right amount of fellowship and sights. Additionally, the tour of Greece and Turkey is geared at a leisurely pace where you will have ample time to explore on your own.

If you have more time, you can do the optional Rome extension. In Rome, you will see the most important Biblical sites and stay in a very central location in order to see other beautiful monuments of the Eternal City.

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!

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.
