In less than two months, we will be hosting our first Deaf Answers, Bible Alive!—a special conference in ASL—in the Answers Center at the Ark Encounter. This Deaf-led event will take place November 8–10, 2019, and there’s still time for you to join us! What will you experience during this conference? Find out below!

Faith-Equipping Sessions

Join Calvin Farley, Mark Sorenson, Jason Suhr, Dwight Rogers, and other dynamic presenters for faith-equipping sessions in the Answers Center during Bible Alive! Paco and April Garcia from the A&E show Deaf Out Loud will also share their testimony. You will have the opportunity to participate in special breakout sessions with Chad Entinger and Renca Dunn, J.R. Bucklew, Matthew Belwood, and more. And you won’t want to miss the presentation and drama from Deaf Missions, DOOR, and Deaf Harbor!

Interpreters Available

During breaks in the conference, attendees can tour the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter and enjoy ASL interpretation during specific times at each location. It’s a wonderful time of fellowship and learning for all involved.
