I am delighted to announce that well-known Australian Christian leader and speaker Martyn Iles has accepted a leadership role at Answers in Genesis (AiG) as Chief Ministry Officer. Here is a statement from Martyn about this change in his life.

AiG is a large Christian apologetics and education ministry, also known for owning the famous Ark Encounter and Creation Museum which attract 1.5 million visitors each year.

I will be aiding in the overall leadership of the ministry with the CEO, Ken Ham, who is a fellow Australian (indeed, a Queenslander!).

My role is to continue to advance and adapt the ministry to an emerging generation and a changing culture. I will produce a lot of content, speak at live events all over the world, write books, design education programs, and more.

Also, I will lead the Australian office of the ministry and make sure Australia doesn’t miss out!

AiG has a workforce of up to 1,200 people, so we can do it all!

To this end, I will shortly be moving to the Cincinnati area full-time, though I will continue to visit Australia.

This is an incredible opportunity to do great things on a massive scale, with huge resources and very talented people.

This is an incredible opportunity to do great things—including so much of what I was already doing—on a massive scale, with huge resources and very talented people.

And yes, answers are in Genesis, and the Word of God is still the wisdom we need for our world.

It’s an honor to be entrusted with this role by Ken and the AiG team. It is a big challenge and a big life change. I value your prayers.

Wow—this is very exciting for us, and as you get to know Martyn through his speaking, writing, videos, and more, you’ll quickly see why we’re so excited. I encourage you to watch the video below where I chat with Martyn about him joining our ministry.

Please pray for Martyn as he makes this big move from Australia to America as I did so many years ago!

I believe this move will help take AiG to new levels of impact.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
