Get Equipped at Two Sanctity of Life Events Coming in 2022

on November 11, 2021

We’re thrilled that our parent ministry, Answers in Genesis, is producing a powerful pro-life vacation Bible school program for 2022. Thousands of churches will be teaching kids that life is precious, from the tiniest unborn person to the oldest person.

And you can get equipped to lead or volunteer for this unique VBS during our Life Is Precious conference, January 28, 2022, and our Zoomerang Showcase event on January 29, 2022, at the Ark Encounter.

Life Is Precious Conference

On Friday, January 28, 2022, the Life Is Precious conference, which is open to anyone who would like to attend, will take place inside the Answers Center. Featuring presentations on the value of life by Ken Ham, Dr. Georgia Purdom, Stacia McKeever, and Camille Cates, you will discover that science confirms that life begins at fertilization and that the Bible teaches that all life is precious to God.

This event will also include a fun Australian animal encounter in the morning along with the opportunity to explore the Ararat Ridge Zoo and meet some additional Australian animals, weather permitting.


Get up close to our kangaroos in our kangaroo walkabout inside the Ararat Ridge Zoo.

This one-of-a-kind, life-affirming event for VBS volunteers, church leaders, and anyone who wants to learn more about what the Bible says about the value of life runs from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The $50 conference ticket includes free one-day admission to the Ark Encounter and is usable any time during 2022.

The Ark Encounter is open Wednesday through Saturday during January, so if you’d like to explore the Ark while you’re in the area, plan to use your free ticket on Thursday before the conference.

Zoomerang Showcase Event

The next day, Saturday, January 29, 2022, will be the big Zoomerang Showcase Event from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. VBS leaders will share an exciting overview of the evangelistic, pro-life Zoomerang VBS program. Plus, a variety of breakout sessions will feature Zoomerang decoration ideas, director get-togethers, demonstrations of crafts and experiments, and more!

You can currently register with early-bird pricing$15 per person or $10 per person for groups of five or more through December 31, 2021 (regular price is $25 per person or $20 per person for groups). To view the event’s schedule, please visit the event page.
