Over the past few weeks, I’ve been introducing you to the many different teams and departments here at Answers in Genesis who have been working hard and wearing many hats during this challenging time of the coronavirus.
On Monday, we officially reopened the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum here in N. Kentucky after nearly three months of being closed. We’re so thrilled to welcome guests at both attractions again. But reopening has had many challenges, and our staff are still working very hard to keep things running and to reach our visitors. Today, meet the web, print, and educational content teams.
Each of these teams has sacrificially worked hard with a much smaller staff to keep the website running.
The web department includes design, development, and content. Each of these teams has sacrificially worked hard with a much smaller staff to keep the website running, including posting brand-new articles on a host of relevant topics—including a biblical perspective on coronavirus and racism.
They’ve enabled us to be able to broadcast livestreams, which have been very popular and a blessing to many individuals and families, including some who had never heard of our ministry. The web team, together with our Vacation Bible School team, also “resurrected” our 2012 Answers VBS, IncrediWorld, and reformatted and updated it into an “at-home” VBS for families and churches to use for free this year.
The web department, in conjunction with a dedicated AiG friend and supporter, also did a phenomenal amount of work to help get our new streaming platform, Answers.tv, up and running in an incredibly short timeframe—just one month! (Normally such projects take close to a year.)
Now, once the design and content teams finish producing a product that will need to be printed, it might go to our print department. (You can meet Rich, who heads up the print shop in the below video.) We outsource some of our printing projects, but many of them, often including our daily schedules for the attractions, are printed in-house. Yes, it’s quite the operation!
Many families have benefited from these resources, growing in the knowledge of God’s Word and the gospel together.
The final team I’d like to mention in this blog is our education content team. They have provided online content for homeschoolers and others, especially those who are “accidental” homeschoolers during the coronavirus, to use at home during this unique time. Many families have benefited from these resources, growing in the knowledge of God’s Word and the gospel together.
Thank you to all of our staff who have worked so hard and continue to work hard to get the message of biblical authority and the gospel into homes across the nation and other countries. And thank you to our supporters who have given to AiG, enabling us to continue boldly proclaiming the message, even during these challenging times (times when people desperately need biblical truth and hope!).
