A Message from Dr. Eckman

Dear Friends,

The heritage of Christianity is rich. God, through His grace, has preserved His church across the centuries by orchestrating circumstances, inspiring people, and altering the direction of nations. One of the unique moments that reveals this is the great 16th century Reformation of the Church. It impacted Western Civilization in a profound way, affecting the development of modern nation‐states and laying the foundation for the modern missionary movement that even today spans the globe.

Please join me as we visit the key places where this remarkable movement called The Reformation began—Eisleben, Erfurt, Wittenberg, Zurich and Geneva, among many others. We will literally walk where Luther, Zwingli and Calvin walked. Their collective message of Christ alone, grace alone and faith alone changed the course of history. In addition, as we visit the breathtaking Bavarian and Swiss Alps, you will be stirred in a fresh new way by God’s love of beauty.

This is a life‐changing trip filled with enduring memories and the deepening of your faith. Join me as we travel to where it all began!

James P. Eckman, Ph.D.
