Answers Center - Ark Encounter
Who is your authority?
Most Christians would answer “God,” but even though those in our churches may say this, many of the beliefs they hold don’t reflect God and his Word as their ultimate authority. Instead, those beliefs have been pulled from the thinking of our day. But mixing man’s ideas and God’s Word is compromise, and it’s dangerous.
How can we answer the compromise dripping into our pews from Christian colleges and seminaries, Christian leaders, social media influencers, and others with “grace and truth”? Get practical answers from God’s Word at this three-day conference event.
Learn from pastors and Christian leaders—including Ken Ham, Costi Hinn, Joel Beeke, Conrad Mbewe, Josh Buice, and AiG’s Martyn Iles—and experience special worship from modern hymn writers Keith and Kristyn Getty.

Q: Can I register by mail and/or pay by check?
A: Online registration with credit card payment is the only method by which we can process registrations.
Q: Will I receive registration confirmation through the mail?
A: When you complete your registration, you should receive immediate confirmation on the screen (with an order number); this will be followed by an email confirmation. Be sure to keep your confirmation email for your records. A conference name tag will be mailed closer to the event. The email confirmation will be needed if the mailed name tag does not reach you before the conference.
Q: When and where do I check in?
A: The doors open at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 8. When you arrive at the Ark Encounter (1 Ark Encounter Dr., Williamstown, KY 41097), make your way to the ticket booth area. If you have received your name badge, show the Guest Services staff your badge, and they will direct you to the shuttle bus for the Answers Center. If you do not have your name badge with you, show the Guest Services staff your printed confirmation or email confirmation on your phone. Once you have shown your name badge or registration confirmation, you will get on the shuttle bus that takes you to the Answers Center. If you have your name badge (which is your ticket to the conference), go through the Answers Center gift shop to the auditorium. If you do not have your name badge, you will want to pick it up at the table in front of the auditorium. You can check in at any point during the conference.
Q: How do we get our free Ark Encounter and Creation Museum passes?
A: Your registration includes a 7-day pass to the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum (included in the QR code on your name badge). This pass must be used within seven consecutive days, including Answers for Pastors conference dates. PLEASE NOTE: The Ark Encounter and Creation Museum are CLOSED ON SUNDAYS for most of the fall–spring months. If you desire to visit the Ark Encounter or Creation Museum prior to the Answers for Pastors conference, you can do so—your name badge/pass will be valid as early as Thursday, October 3 with a last-available use date of Tuesday, October 15 (excluding Sundays) but can only be used within seven consecutive days of first use. You will need to show your name badge to enter. If, for some reason, you do not have your name badge with you, you will need to go to the ticket window and let them know you are registered for the Answers for Pastors conference. They will find your name on the conference roster.
Q: What is the closest airport to the Ark Encounter/Answers Center?

A: There are no shuttles provided from the airport or hotels to the Creation Museum or Ark Encounter. If you fly in, you will need to rent a car. Also, check with your hotel to see if they have a shuttle to and from the airport.
Q: Does registration for the conference include meals?
A: You are on your own for meals. Food is sold at the Olive Leaf Café in the Answers Center lobby and Emzara’s Buffet (a favorite of many) next to the Ark. There may also be other food vendors available.
