Around two-thousand years ago, the Apostles and other faithful Christians walked through this land that is now Turkey, bringing the gospel of Christ and planting churches as they went. Two-thousand years later we’re still at it. Like those first Christians, we’re committed to planting churches that glorify God and send out others to do the same.
Our desire is to see healthy churches planted in this land again, but also all over the world. If this is your desire as well, join us alongside local believers and pastors from different parts of Turkey as we gain wisdom from the seven churches mentioned in the book of Revelation. In seven days we will visit and study the seven historical churches together and learn what the scriptures teach about planting churches and keeping them healthy.
