Hallelujah—Christ is risen from the dead! As Christians, we have a living hope because Christ is risen from the dead. Join us in celebrating Jesus’ resurrection during our upcoming Easter conference. During times of teaching and worship, we will remember and rejoice over our risen Savior.

These times of teaching will also provide a clear, logical defense of the Christian faith that will answer the skeptical questions of atheists and help Christians be better equipped to witness in an increasingly secular culture. This conference will also equip believers to raise up generations to stand firm with truth in this anti-Christian culture we live in. Both Christians and atheists alike are welcome to attend this five-day conference at the Ark Encounter! You’ll receive

  • 4 days of solid biblical teaching to equip you to stand confidently on God’s Word, with flexibility to attend any or all conference sessions;
  • 7-day combo admission to the world-class Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, with free parking at both attractions for the duration;
  • An Easter Sunrise Service on the 5th day—a once in a lifetime experience!

Keynote speakers include Ken Ham and Ray Comfort, in addition to a diverse lineup of dynamic presenters from Answers in Genesis and other organizations. Ray Comfort is a renowned author of over 70 books and a cohost of the award-winning TV show The Way of the Master. He is the founder of the evangelistic ministry Living Waters.
