Defending Your Faith Family Conference

I just wanted to call your attention to what promises to be an outstanding family get-away. The ministry of Answers in Genesis (AiG) is sponsoring a “Defending Your Faith Family Conference” this summer in Branson, Missouri. Billed as “a spiritual feast for the family,” it will be held July 15-18 at the Tri-Lakes Center in Branson. Personally, I’m excited about the opportunity to hear some of the men I respect most on issues of faith and family. The speakers include:

Ken Ham, founder of AiG and an expert on Creation issues.

Voddie Baucham, pastor of Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, TX; author of Family Driven Faith, and respected speaker on issues like family and cultural apologetics.

Doug Phillips, founder of Vision Forum Ministries and champion of the Biblical family, Biblical manhood and womanhood, etc.

Carl Kerby, founding board member of AiG, and one of their most popular speakers.

Since we’re short on funds around our place, we’ve decided to make this our family vacation for the year. What’s so great is that Cheryl and the kids are as excited about this trip as I am. I can’t think of a better way to spend our time and money that to get the whole family together for a few days of learning from these men, fellowship with like-minded families, and throw in a couple days in Branson to boot.

I know it’s not super cheap. Were it not for some tax refund money, we probably wouldn’t be able to do it either. But compared to what many spend on vacations, this comes in at or less than the usual cost. And the benefit to your family will be priceless.

I don’t know what kind of demand there will be for this, but I would suggest you pray and consider this now and make your reservations soon. Hope to see you in Branson in July.

Will they be doing something like this again this year? Which Branson hotels are recommended to stay in?

I haven't heard of anything like this in Branson this year. The Answer's In Genesis event page is here:

Sorry I can't help out more.
