Evangelization of the Celts at Pessinus. Instead of ministering at Troas, Paul crossed to Europe, and in the process experienced his first sea voyage. Paul’s attitude towards women ministers in Philippi, where one of them acted as his patron. Lack of patronage in Thessalonica obliged him to adopt a lifestyle based on the workshop, but his preaching filled the void left by the co-option of Cabirus into the official cult of the city.
