Christmas is just around the corner and if you’re looking for unique gifts, consider giving gifts of experience to those on your list. Gifts of experience are a wonderful way to build incredible memories (and they don’t clutter up the house or get forgotten in a drawer!). Here are some ideas:
Answers conferences: Consider gifting someone on your list—whether a parent, sibling, pastor, or friend—register them for one of our 2022 conferences, such as
Stand Firm. This conference will equip attendees to answer the questions kids are facing and asking in today’s battle for truth. This would be a great gift for a parent, pastor, or Sunday school teacher.
A Family Homeschool Experience. This is a wonderful gift for the whole family! Five days of faith-building experiences include touring the full-size Noah’s Ark, meeting the animals in Ararat Ridge Zoo during live animal programs, riding the carousel, walking through biblical history at the Creation Museum (including our brand-new, expanded Fearfully & Wonderfully Made exhibit), shopping from our vast array of resources, taking the kids to our world-class playgrounds, watching the kids’ eyes open in wonder as they learn more about God’s creation and the Creator, enjoying hands-on science and Bible programs for the whole family (available for additional cost), and, of course, soaking in practical, biblical teaching from sought-after speakers! Our 2023 speakers include Heidi St. John, Ken Ham, Alex Kendrick, Captain Barry E. Wilmore, and many more. Registration is coming soon!
Answers for Pastors & Leaders. This conference isn’t just for pastors—though it makes a great gift for your pastor. It’s for all believers who want to be equipped to contend for a biblical worldview. Speakers include Grace to You’s Phil Johnson and astronaut Jeff Williams, Darrell Harrison of the Just Thinking podcast, and Emeal “E. Z” Zwayne and Mark Spence of Living Waters, along with me.
3-Day Bouncer pass: A great gift idea for a whole family is a 3–Day Bouncer Pass to the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum. It’s valid for three days of unlimited visits to both attractions within one week. Remember kids 10 and under are free, and we have special youth pricing for teens.Ultimate Bouncer Pass: Do you know someone or a family who loves learning, loves God’s Word, and loves hands-on activities? Get them an Ultimate Bouncer Pass to the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. It’s valid for 12 months (from the first visit) of unlimited admission, plus free parking. It’s a great way to enjoy concerts, speaking presentations, hands-on programs, our zoos, playgrounds, carousel, exhibits, and so much more!Answers.tv: A one-year subscription to our streaming platform Answers TV is only $39.99, and it gives a family unlimited access to over 5,000 videos (and more coming!), including nature programs, hands-on science, kids’ programs, conferences, and so much more. Through Answers TV’s programs, you’ll experience more of God’s Word and God’s world as you dive into the Scriptures and apply them to the world around us.
