Playa Christian Church imagines another spiritual emphasis tour to take place in the spring of 2016. The tour will include locations in Italy and Greece as we retrace the footsteps of the man who opened the doors of Christianity to the world – the Apostle Paul.


On Sunday, May 31st anyone interested in making this venture is invited to attend a preparatory meeting immediately following the 10:30 am service at Playa Christian Church. This meeting is not mandatory, but a solid date for the trip will be set as part of the meeting’s agenda.

You do not have to be a member of our congregation, or even live in Los Angeles to embark upon this trip with us. Just email us at or call us at 310.592.3477 to sign up. The trip will cost something in the area of $3,000.00. Once we have a defined group and begin to make the necessary arrangements, of course, the cost will be more exacting.

Because this is the first such trip we have taken to this part of the world, we will be visiting many of the most popular sites which are common for first-time tourists. Please keep this in mind if you have already traveled to this part of the world. However, also take into consideration that none of the scheduled sites are mandatory – we allow plenty of individual flexibility. This fact also allows you to exercise some creativity in your budgeting. For example, if on a particular day you decide to forego a particular scheduled attraction in lieu of a self-guided walk, that option will be available.


Each day will begin with group devotions and prayer, and each devotion will be related to that day’s agenda. Just as with the 2013 Footsteps of Jesus Tour, we will reviewing a lot of history. During the 2013 trip we concentrated on the life and times of Jesus with an emphasis on the history, geography, and development of the Jewish nation. This trip will focus on the life and times of Paul with an emphasis on the history, geography, and development of the church.

As with all Playa Christian Church tours, Pastor Terry does not impose a surcharge on participants requiring others to pay for his expenses. We do everything we can to keep costs low, making sure everyone is afforded an equal opportunity to enjoy this spiritually uplifting experience.

This is sure to be a wonderful trip with lots of opportunity for relaxation, mental stimulation, and spiritual development. We are very excited to offer it and we hope you come along!
