We invite you to join us as we tour Greece and follow in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul. Our tour will trace the Apostle Paul’s journeys and promises to deepen your faith and enrich your understanding of early Christian history.
We’ll explore the great cities of Classical and Hellenistic Greece and visit the first century Christian cities of Philippi, Thessaloniki, Berea, Athens, Corinth, Ephesus and Patmos. It is in these communities where the pivotal events of the early church will come alive as you explore the Scriptures in their original settings. You will wade into the stream where Paul baptizes Lydia. You’ll hear Paul’s sermon read again as it was delivered to the Athenians of his day. You’ll celebrate the Holy Communion in Corinth as did the first century Christians.
Of course, no tour would be complete without a cruise of the wonderful Greek islands, and we’ll bask in the brilliant sun and gaze at the deep blue seas of the Aegean as we explore a wide variety of islands, from Patmos with its ancient feel to Mykonos and its cosmopolitan vibe.
As we travel together, our Footstep Ministries team, David and Dave Sparks, will share with you the first century context that shaped Paul’s gospel message and how his message of Jesus Christ continues to inspire and encourage those who want to follow him. Elizabeth Iliadou-Sparks as a native of Berea, Greece (Acts 17:11), will give you an insider’s view of her homeland, taking you off the beaten path to provide a rich experience of Greek culture and cuisine. You will see and experience more than you can imagine in this enchanting land of beauty and history.
On this tour you will gain a fresh perspective, an eye-witness experience, and a renewed appreciation for the mission, message and ministry of the Apostle Paul and the culture of modern Greece. We hope you will join us for this once in a lifetime experience. Space is limited, so make your reservations soon! Looking forward to our future travels together!
