Recently, Jonathan Albert, the new executive director of Canyon Ministries in Arizona, spoke to the Answers in Genesis, Creation Museum, and Ark Encounter staff. Now, we love to help support quality ministries that stand on the authority of God’s Word beginning in Genesis—and Canyon Ministries absolutely does!
Formerly directed by Tom Vail, Canyon Ministries offers rafting trips through the Grand Canyon from a biblical creation perspective. Under Jonathan Albert’s leadership, the ministry will continue the mission of equipping people to counter the claims of evolutionists.
In our staff meeting, Jonathan shared his testimony and his love of teaching the truth of creation according to Genesis to people on his trips. Jonathan shared from the books of Proverbs and 2 Peter, reminding us that when we use God’s Word as the foundation for our worldview, we can better understand the world around us:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5–6)
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue (2 Peter 1:2–3)
In 2014, AiG and Canyon Ministries will partner for a number of special rafting trips, led by a variety of biblical creationists, including AiG researchers and speakers Dr. Andrew Snelling and Dr. Danny Faulkner. To learn more about these unforgettable trips (I have been on one of these raft trips), see my previous blog post.
I encourage you to visit the AiG Grand Canyon raft trip page and book your trip today. You won’t regret it!
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
