Jane and I invite you to join us as we tour Greece and follow in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul. Our tour guides, David and Elizabeth Sparks will trace the Apostle Paul’s journeys and promises to deepen our faith and enrich our understanding of early Christian history. This trip is truly a spiritual gift.
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. We’ll also visit Vergina, site of the royal tombs, Meteora, with its towering monasteries, and Delphi, shrine of the ancient god Apollo. Of course, no tour of Greece would be complete without a cruise of the wonderful Greek islands, and we will bask in the brilliant sun and gaze at the deep blue seas of the Aegean, visiting the islands of Santorini and Mykonos, among others.
As we travel together David Sparks be sharing insights with you into how the first century context shaped Paul’s gospel message and how his message of Jesus Christ continues today to inspire and encourage those who want to follow him. Elizabeth Iliadou-Sparks is a native of Berea (Acts 17:11) and she’ll give you an insider’s view of her homeland, taking you off the beaten path to provide an unusually rich and gracious experience of Greek culture and cuisine. You will see and experience more than you can imagine in this enchanting land of beauty and history.
You will find this tour to be an opportunity to 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. I hope that you will consider joining us for this lifetime experience. Space is limited, so make your reservations soon!
