Ken Ham and creation geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling will be offering a variety of sessions that will help you defend the Christian faith, answer the critics, train your family, and preach the gospel in a secular world.

To reach public school, Christian school, and homeschooled students, the weekend includes special Student Sessions for both grades K-5 and grades 6-12. There will also be a variety of general sessions for all. (Younger children are welcome at the general sessions if accompanied by a parent; a nursery is available, as well as limited, free childcare to age four..)

View the complete conference schedule and download a conference brochure at the first website. If you’re planning to come from far away and will need a hotel, check out the list of local accommodations at the second website. (Local hotels may fill quickly because of the Cherry Blossom Festival, so now’s the time to reserve a room if you need one.)
