Greece & Italy: Shining the Light of Jesus In the Footsteps of the Apostle Paul

Shining the Light of Jesus in the Footsteps of the Apostle Paul is planned as a “disciple’s pilgrimage,” exploring key sites of the Apostle Paul’s Second and Third Missionary Journeys and his imprisonment in Rome. We will discover important insights into how the Gospel advanced into Europe and established the foothold that impacted our Western history. Along the way, we will discover how God guided Paul’s journey and, from this, learn how we can better follow God’s leading in our lives. Together, we will gain a better understanding of Paul’s New Testament letters to the Greek and Roman churches so that we can grow in our faith walk and witness.
