I recently toured Ararat Ridge Zoo at the Ark Encounter with a special ministry friend that many of you will recognize—actor and director Alex Kendrick. He’s best known for the movies Fireproof, War Room, and Courageous (more on Courageous in a moment!). In the below video, you can join Alex, animal presenter Karina Altman, and me as we pet a wallaby, see baby emus, and check out a few of the 200+ animals that live at the Ark Encounter.
You can actually enjoy this film during a special red-carpet movie screening, featuring the film’s entire leading cast, at the Ark Encounter!
As promised, here’s more on the Courageous film: This year marks the ten-year anniversary of the release of that powerful movie. In honor of that anniversary, the film is being re-released with added scenes and a brand-new ending. If you loved Courageous, you won’t want to miss the tenth-anniversary updated film, Courageous Legacy. And you can actually enjoy this film during a special red-carpet movie screening, featuring the film’s entire leading cast, at the Ark Encounter!
During our conversation in the video above, Alex and I discussed this upcoming red-carpet movie screening, happening during our “Raising Godly Generations” conference at the Ark Encounter, October 5–7, 2021, south of Cincinnati. This conference is going to be fantastic! Solid teaching from Dennis Rainey, Dr. Conrad Mbewe, Justin Peters, Dr. H. B. Charles Jr., me, and others, combined with worship from Michael O’Brien, is going to encourage pastors, leaders, parents, grandparents, and others to raise up the children in their care in the fear and admonition of the Lord. What a vital message in a day when children and the family are under such attack!
The theme of this conference connects well with the powerful message of Courageous Legacy—you won’t want to miss it! The movie screening is included free with your conference admission.
If you want to meet and greet the leading cast members of the film, along with the speakers coming to the conference, join us for the Courageous Legacy cast reception.
And if you want to meet and greet the leading cast members of the film, along with the speakers coming to the conference, join us for the Courageous Legacy cast reception at the Ark Encounter, right before the movie screening. It includes food stations, appetizers, soft drinks, coffee, and dessert. This event requires a special ticket and is a great add-on to your conference experience (you can also choose just to attend the cast reception).
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
