Answers for Pastors & Leaders Conference 2021

to Oct 07

Williamstown, KY

Answers Center - Ark Encounter

Join us for the 2021 Answers for Pastors and Leaders Conference, Raising Godly Generations to Face the Secular Giants, October 5–7, 2021, at the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky. Registration includes seven-day admission to the Ark Encounter and the nearby Creation Museum as well as the red carpet movie screening of Courageous Legacy with optional cast reception!

The conference is open to everyone. Whether you’re a pastor or a pastor’s wife, a Christian leader, a high school or college student, a parent, a grandparent, or a believer concerned about your generation, subsequent generations, and how to navigate the increasingly hostile culture we live in, this conference is for you.

Red-Carpet Screening: Courageous Legacy

Ten years after the release of Courageous, the Kendrick Brothers present us with the red-carpet screening of Courageous Legacy. Remastered with the addition of new scenes and a new ending, this ten-year anniversary production continues the legacy of encouraging godly fathers and families.

The movie appears in theaters on September 24, but you have the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive screening in the Answers Center on October 5, the first night of this conference. Members of the movie cast will also be present for this exclusive red-carpet event. Plan to join the celebration and enjoy a reception with the cast of Courageous!*

*Semi-formal attire is requested.
