Educating Children/Young People

by Ken Ham on April 13, 2011

AiG influences thousands upon thousands of children and teens each year through the Creation Museum, websites, resources (books, DVDs, and so on), and conferences. As part of our AiG conferences, we often conduct two 1.5 hour sessions for grades K–6 and 7–12 respectively. I make the K–6 program fun for the kids, and they love learning the true history of the world from the Bible, using dinosaurs, Noah’s Ark, etc. The children also hear the gospel message clearly. For the grades 7–12, I teach them creation apologetics in topics such as geology, biology, anthropology, and biochemistry; and I am often joined by an AiG scientist. These young people are excited to learn that they can trust God’s Word and defend their faith.

Here are photographs taken at our school programs this past Monday morning at Christian Life Center in Dayton, Ohio.

Praise the Lord for all the children who are being raised up on the truth of God’s Word and who are being equipped to be able to defend the faith against the false ideas of evolution and millions of years.

AMC is Coming! Discount Still Available.

The Apologetics Mega Conference (AMC) to be held here in northern Kentucky is getting closer, and the anticipation for this year’s major in-depth apologetics conference is growing.

This July 18–22 national conference will come on the heels of the release of one of the most important apologetics books of the year, AiG’s Already Compromised. The sequel to our book on why so many young people are leaving the church (called Already Gone, co-authored by Britt Beemer), Already Compromised is about how young people are being taught biblical compromise in Christian colleges.

More than ever, the church needs to equip its people to defend the authority of the Word of God and the gospel of Christ. Join us for our equipping conference, and visit the Creation Museum (only 20 minutes away) to help repair the cracks of compromise in the foundational book of our faith, Genesis. Though an intensive conference, AMC is suitable for suggested ages 15 and up, and thus teens who are thinking about going to a Christian college should benefit by attending. I will be one of the keynote speakers.

Join us July 18–22 at Florence Baptist Church, located about 15 miles south of Cincinnati and directly off I-75 in beautiful Northern Kentucky. We are thankful for the church’s pastor, Dr. Tim Alexander, for opening his church’s doors to AiG, and we ask you to pray for him as he battles a serious illness right now.

See full conference details.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
