You never know who you might meet while you’re visiting either of our two world-class attractions in Northern Kentucky. Visitors from all over the world come to the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter, including six men who recently came from the Faroe Islands (a part of Denmark between Norway and Iceland). These Danish Christian leaders were on their way to Los Angeles, California, to attend the Shepherds’ Conference, sponsored by Grace to You.
The mission of the Shepherds’ Conference is to provide an opportunity for men in church leadership to be challenged in their commitment to biblical ministry and to find encouragement together as servants of the Chief Shepherd. This huge event is held annually, with this year’s theme of “I Will Build My Church,” and will include discussions on biblical and practical matters in the church.
The Danes said they wanted to make a point of visiting AiG’s two attractions before heading to California. Now, here is a bit of information about the unusual place where these men live. The Faroe Islands is a self-governing archipelago, part of the Kingdom of Denmark. It comprises 18 rocky, volcanic islands in the North Atlantic Ocean. This is truly one of the most remote places on earth, and the leaders told us that it is an area in desperate need of hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Shepherds’ Conference attended by the Danes is hosted by Dr. John MacArthur, who will speak with me at our Answers for Pastors and Christian Leaders Conference later this year.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
