Many of the earliest Christian communities mentioned in the Bible were in the land that is now Turkey. This pilgrimage will give participants the opportunity to visit Tarsus, where Paul was born, and Antioch, where the name "Christian" was first used. It will also include the amphitheater at Ephesus and the seashore of Miletus, where Paul and other apostles preached, along with Nicea, Ephesus, and Constantinople (now Istanbul).
Cost is $4,400 per person. For more information, please access:
