Christian Scottish and Irish Reformation
Tour 2018 | August 8 – 18, 2018
Lead a Christian Reformation cruise and tour of Scotland and Ireland in 2018. This 10-day journey includes the historic and scenic sights of Scotland and Ireland, along with the importance of the Reformers who came before us to these precious places. We will visit St. Andrews in Scotland (yes you will see the Old Course!) and visit where the first Christian Martyrs were burnt at the stake, you will see the castles of both Scotland and Ireland, drive the highlands and the lowlands and still have time in the Emerald Isle to take in its natural beauty. We will end our days with group dinners (if you wish to join!) and have special times of fellowship each day.

I love to travel but this tour was the adventure of a lifetime. Everything was first class: the hotels, the food, the guides and the teaching.
I learned a lot, experienced a lot, and created great memories. Great overall experience. Local guides were mostly excellent….knowledgeable and friendly. Rhonda is very helpful and professionally competent in all she does.

1. Through the use of The Word, we trust that once you have returned from your trip, you will have gained a deeper knowledge of the scriptures and the multiple layers of teaching and truths that are inside each.
Isaiah 55:11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
2. You can be assured an experience like our previous participants, who have gained an appreciation of how God uses everything for His glory and for the purpose of furthering knowledge and understanding. You will see this as you encounter the geology of the land, the geography where events actually occurred and the archaeology that may (or may not!) still exist. Furthermore, through the remaining people in the land, the practices still in place and demography that have endured.
Colossians 1:20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.
3. Further, our assurance is received that through The Word; the teachings you will be exposed will solidify the truth which you and your family have been taught by seeing, touching and hearing the scriptures each day. We assert and firmly believe Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
4. You and your family will experience the oneness of the body of Christ during our trip. Just as Jesus prayed in John 17:21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
