Turkey Tour 2021: Seven Churches of Revelation

August 24 – September 3, 2021
Western Turkey was the cradle of the early Christian church. This area was the centerpiece of Paul’s mission and and an area to which he devoted a great deal of his time and energy. His ministry in the region was so productive that it could be said that “all who lived in Asia heard the word of the Lord” Acts 19:10).
