From three-credit academic study abroad courses to school holiday trips, Footstep Ministries provides the highest quality academic experiences in Greece and Italy.  By building a comprehensive narrative from day one and examining the archaeological evidence first hand, our goal is to bring the ancient world to life for your students. Whether studying the New Testament history of the Apostles Paul and Peter in Rome, the grandiose legacy of the Roman Empire, or the sublime beauty of the Renaissance, Italy is the premier location for an academic study abroad course.  Having created numerous collegiate study abroad courses over the past many decades, we look forward to discussing with you how we can put together a one of a kind program for your students.
