Footsteps of Apostles Tour Announcement

How’d you like to walk down the main street of ancient Ephesus and see what Paul saw? Wander among the well-preserved ruins of one of the greatest cities of antiquity and imagine Paul, John, and Timothy standing in the square or preaching house to house. What about visiting the island of Patmos where the apocalyptic content of Revelation was given? Visit the grave of the Apostle John, retrace the route of the Seven Churches of Asia, and cruise the blue Aegean. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of an oriental spice market in old Istanbul. Gaze in wonder at the Hagai Sophia, one of the grandest buildings in church history. Sail on the Bosphorus with Europe on one side and Asia on the other.

Join us next June 10-19 for a tour in the footsteps of the Apostles. Van Stewart and I are hosting a trip to Ephesus, the island of Patmos, the city of Istanbul, and the seven churches of Asia. Combine travel and adventure with your love for the Bible. Learn about Christian history on site. Discover why two-thirds of the books of the New Testament were either written to or from Turkey, and why Turkey—once the launching pad of Christianity—is now the least evangelized nation on earth.

We’ll stay in four-star hotels, sample local cuisine, utilize quality guides, travel by plane, tram, boat, and bus; and we’ll leave plenty of time for you to explore Istanbul on your own.
