Speaker Change at RFC 2015
As an update to those who are registered for RFC 2015, we would like to pass along a recent development regarding the status of one of our speakers – Pastor Al Martin. Due to several ongoing health issues, Pastor Martin regretfully must pull out of the conference on June 11-13. In the statement below, he outlines his reasons and expresses his hope that the Lord will come in great power and meet with all of us despite his absence. While we will greatly miss his ministry, we also understand the circumstances and wish him and his family all the very best.
Rev. Armen Thomassian has graciously agreed to take Pastor Martin’s place, and we are praying that the Lord will use him mightily along with our other speakers – Dr. Joel Beeke, Rev. Kevin Swanson, Dr. Michael Barrett, and Mr. Steve Ham. You can find more information regarding Rev. Thomassian within the links below:
We hope to see you soon at the Creation Museum!

A STATEMENT OF EXPLANATION FROM PASTOR MARTIN
In a recent email to the sponsors and directors of the forthcoming RFC Conference, I informed them that I had made a decision to cancel my commitment to the Conference. This decision was not made hastily, but after much wrestling of mind and heart and seeking the counsel of my elders.
The main reason for making this decision relates to the fact that I have several physical issues which combine to make it unwise for me to attempt to discharge the responsibilities connected with conference ministries involving travel. None of these issues is life-threatening, but up till now it seems that they cannot be corrected with medical means. It appears that they are simply reminders that an 81-year-old body will be, in one way or another, living proof of the words of the apostle Paul that “the outward man is perishing.”
I am thankful that God has provided an able man in the person of Pastor Thomassian to fill in for me. May God be pleased to come in great power upon each of the men as they preach, and upon all of you who gather for those days together at the Creation Museum.
Warmly in Christ,
