Germany Switzerland Tour Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio
May 20 – 30, 2017 with Optional Extension
This Germany Switzerland tour is led by Mike Abendroth, Senior Pastor of Bethlehem Bible Church and host of No Compromise Radio. Join us as we celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation on this extraordinary tour. You will glean from Pastor Mike Abendroth’s expository teachings and learn how to dive into the scriptures and discover the truths just as Martin Luther did those 500 years ago. This exciting tour will take you to the places Martin Luther, John Calvin and other Reformers ministered and give you a biblical perspective of why the Reformation must never be forgotten or reversed. You will garner much wisdom from these gifted speakers that will help you contend earnestly for the faith against the growing ecumenical movement. You may also choose, as an option, to go to Wittenberg a few days early and attend a Reformation Conference hosted by The Master’s Academy International. The price for this Germany Switzerland tour is $4,399 per person plus airfare.
Optional pre-tour conference on the Reformation
May 17 to 21, you can spend extra time (one, two, or three extra nights) in Wittenberg, Germany at the Master’s Academy International Conference. Contact us for details. Speakers include John MacArthur, Steve Lawson, Paul Washer, James White and many others!
