Answers in Genesis

We are excited to announce that the ministry of

Answers in Genesis is coming to Liberty

This is a special free Answers in Genesis event for everyone with special sessions for school groups and home school students.

Sunday, March 15 and Monday, March 16, 2020

Vine and Branch Church in Liberty, New York

Answers In Genesis is an apologetics ministry started by Ken Ham, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. Through world­ class attractions including the Creation Museum and the life-size Ark Encounter, they focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible-particularly the book of Genesis-regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth. AIG strives to encourage Christians to embrace a Biblical worldview.

Our AIG Speaker is Bryan Osborne. Bryan holds a master’s degree in education from Lee University. He taught Bible history in a public school for 13 years and has been teaching Christians to defend their faith for nearly 20 years. Bryan is now a full-time speaker and author for Answers in Genesis.
