Istanbul & the Seven Churches of Revelation
11 Day Tour of Turkey
Wheaton College Alumni, Parents, & Friends
October 19 - 29, 2015
$4,195 from Chicago
We invite you to join us October 19 – 29, 2015 when we host the first Wheaton College Alumni Relations tour to Turkey. Located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, this is a country where ancient ruins meet bustling modern bazaars. We’ll explore the historic city of Istanbul and visit the sites of the seven churches that St. John wrote about in the book of Revelation. Traveling along the Aegean Coast, we will study John’s letters in their historic context, giving us insights into some of the ways Revelation can challenge and encourage the church today. We'll also visit locations where much of the Apostle Paul’s ministry took place.
Managing our tour is Wheaton's longtime travel partner, Footstep Ministries. The Rev. Dr. David Sparks (Wheaton College class of ’75) and Elizabeth Iliadou-Sparks have conducted more than 100 tours to Israel, Italy, Greece and Turkey. They will lead our journey with expertise, warmth, and an attention to detail for which they are renowned.
I hope you will join us on this remarkable journey.
