You and your family might feel like you’re swimming upstream. But have you ever tried swimming against a flood?

4,000 years ago, the earth was covered by the greatest flood of all time. Every man, woman and child was swept away...except for one man and his family. But that wasn’t all. Another flood was raging which posed even greater danger to Noah and his family - a worldwide flood of ungodliness.

What did Noah do?

“By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.” (Heb 11:7)

What can you do?

Join families from across the country for the Noah Conference in Cincinnati on August 19 & 20 - just minutes away from the new life-size Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. Based on lessons from the life of Noah, the Noah Conference will prepare you to engage your kids, disciple them in an ungodly generation, and launch them into life as ambassadors of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Having a hard time connecting with your kids?

You, like Noah, are competing against a thousand corrupt voices.

So how can you get engaged in your children’s lives so they hear your voice through the din calling, “Follow me as I follow Christ”?

You might not start Noah and Sons, Arkbuilders Inc, but you will have to find a way to involve your kids in your life, work and ministry.

The Noah Conference will equip you with achievable ways to engage with your kids on a new level so when it’s time to get on the ark…they’re already on-board.


How did Noah get his sons to follow him into the ark?

… especially when everyone said there was no flood to fear. After all, it hadn’t rained for a very long time – like, never before.

Like Noah’s sons, your children must also follow you into an ark to be saved – the ark that is Jesus Christ.

Struggling to communicate the call of the Gospel in the face of an enticing me-centered, entertainment-saturated, and peer-dominated culture? The Noah Conference will help you get back to the basics of what it means to disciple your children in the Gospel of Jesus Christ—the only life-boat that will stand the storm.


Are your kids ready to launch from the ark?

Noah’s sons were drawn out of the world into an ark, and then launched from the ark back into the world to replenish and subdue it.

When your kids launch into life, will they be prepared with the conviction, character and competence required to be faithful ambassadors of Jesus Christ?

Answering the most practical questions of life calling, career preparation, and finding good opportunities, the LifeLaunch track at the Noah Conference will prepare your kids to launch into life now with a clear vision for the future. Get ready to disembark!
