July 8, 2016 (Nashville, TN)… StowTown Records’ popular powerhouse group, The Collingsworth Family, proudly took part in the highly anticipated and publicized ribbon cutting ceremony for the brand new Ark Encounter earlier this week.
Ark Encounter “features a full-size Noah’s Ark, built according to the dimensions given in the Bible. Spanning 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high, this modern engineering marvel amazes visitors young and old. Ark Encounter is situated in the beautiful Williamstown, Kentucky.”
The massive exhibit and future Theme Park is the vision of Dr. Ken Ham, founder, president and CEO of the Answers In Genesis, which operates the Creation Museum just 40 miles north in Petersburg. The Christian organization is an “apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively…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.”
Over 8,000 donors and special guests along with many media members attended the special one-time event, clogging up I-75 for miles and setting the stage for this major attraction for years to come.
“It was a stalwart honor for The Collingsworth Family to be asked to perform for the ribbon cutting ceremony for The Ark Encounter,” said Phil Collingsworth. “God has blessed the ministry of Dr. Ken Ham and Answers In Genesis tremendously, and it was awesome to be a part of the very beginning of this new endeavor which will bless thousands of people who come through the exhibit and Theme Park.”
Ark Experience theme park includes the Ararat Ridge Zoo, daily animal shows, zip lines, a 500-seat outdoor ampitheater, live entertainment, a 1,500-seat themed restaurant and performing arts center, and fair-trade shopping.
