How many youth conferences do you know that use one of their sessions for apologetics? Just a couple of weeks ago Reliant Youth Conference (RYC) spent a day at the Creation Museum as part of their three-day event. In attendance were over 360 teenagers and youth leaders from 13 different states—some as far away as Texas and South Dakota—who were blessed to hear the president and CEO of Answers in Genesis give a message about the relevance of Genesis in their lives. They were also challenged from the Word by Kurt Skelly, Jim Schettler, and David Gibbs Jr.
The museum’s Legacy Hall is a great place to host an event! Not only does it seat around 900 people, but attendees have the opportunity to spend time in the museum and enjoy the botanical gardens and the pavilions for lunch and dinner like this group did. We look forward to the day when Legacy Hall is packed with teenagers where the mission of the conference (like RYC) will be to glorify God and uplift and preach Jesus Christ!
