Answers for Pastors and Christian Leaders

to Oct 11

Petersburg, KY

Legacy Hall - Creation Museum

Is the Bible understandable? Can people make sense of Genesis without professional scholars and academics?

Join us in Legacy Hall at the Creation Museum on October 9–11, 2018, as we address these foundational questions on the character of God’s Word. Our theme for the annual Answers for Pastors and Christian Leaders conference this year is “Taking back the Bible’s clarity . . . from the very first verse.”

Upholding the Clear Word of God

Dr. John MacArthur

Dr. John MacArthur

Ken Ham, Pastor John MacArthur, and AiG’s dynamic team of speakers will tackle a disturbing trend with many Christian leaders, academics, seminary professors, and others. Sadly, many are teaching that God’s Word isn’t clear in its basic messages (particularly in the book of Genesis) and that Christians supposedly need the help of scholars to even begin to understand the Bible.

This unique conference is designed to encourage pastors and all Christian leaders to confidently stand on the promises that are plainly given to us in the infallible Word so they, in turn, can equip other believers to do the same.
