Stand Firm Conference


Williamstown, KY

Answers Center - Ark Encounter

Stand Firm will equip you to answer the questions your kids are facing and asking in today’s battle for truth. Enjoy teaching sessions from Ken Ham, Bryan Osborne, Tim Chaffey, Bodie Hodge, and Dr. Georgia Purdom.

Registration includes access to the Ark Encounter grounds but not the Ark itself.

This event is the day before our Keepers of the Kingdom Showcase Event, and we encourage churches using Keepers of the Kingdom to send their VBS leaders and as many volunteers as possible to this conference so they can be equipped to stand strong in today's battle for truth and pass that along to the kids during VBS week. But this conference isn’t just for Keepers of the Kingdom leaders and volunteers—it’s for everyone to attend.
