OVERVIEW

TOUR OVERVIEW:

Pastor Dix has created an in-depth itinerary that is coupled with beautiful hotels and amazing meals in Turkey and Greece. This is a small custom group with limited space. Pastor Dix and Cynthia Winston have selected a Seven Churches of Revelation Tour and Footsteps of Paul trip tailored for those who seek knowledge through The Word, archaeology, history, fellowship and people.

This tour spends 5 nights at a luxury hotel on the Mediterranean Sea. You travel out each day, in comfort, to see the sights of the Seven Churches of Revelation and the places where the Early Church took root. Imagine understanding and seeing where Paul spoke to the sorceress, to see where John was imprisoned, to stand on the beach where Paul handed over his parchments to Phoebe, to stand in the doorway of the Synagogue at Corinth where Paul spoke, and to stand on the Bema at Corinth that still exists today. Book early to ensure you are able to join us. The air carrier we use is Turkish Air, one of the top 5 carriers in the world. They are a United Airlines partner. We fly Denver to Istanbul and then have a short hop flight. The tour starts at $5,599 (all inclusive) per person, sharing one room. We match singles, or you can obtain a single room for yourself at a small surcharge. The tour price includes airfare and all meals and tours as noted.

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!

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.
