A Pilgrimage in the Steps of Martin Luther

We want to invite you on an unforgettable journey into Germany, filled with history, culture, and spiritual blessings. We’ll visit places that witnessed events of decisive and enduring importance in the history of humanity.

This journey will provide you a deeper understanding of the scriptures as you travel through Germany. You’ll get a closer look at the life of Martin Luther and his mission of faith. When you make this journey in the company of friends and others of like mind, you can look forward to an unforgettable experience.

Join us on this all-inclusive “Martin Luther” Germany tour! Martin Luther put his 95 Theses on the Wittenberg door (castle which became the All Saints Church), saying “The just shall live by FAITH.” From Frankfurt to Berlin, you will appreciate the ones who taught us our theology that we live by.

At the end of this tour, two things will most certainly be changed: you, and your faith.

Sincerely,
Pastor Richard Webb
