A Season of Opportunity

We at the Institute for Creation Research, now in its 49th year, are thankful for God’s many blessings upon our ministry. Through it all, His providential hand has unmistakably guided our steps, supplied our needs, and enabled us to plan for the future. By God’s grace, ICR is reaching more people today than ever before with the scientific evidence that the Bible is right and its message is true. All glory to Him!

Even so, ICR is mindful of Christ’s admonition to “do business till I come” (Luke 19:13). This is no time to rest on our laurels. Rather, He expects us to keep busy using our abilities to sow, water, and reap in fruitful service to Him (1 Corinthians 3:7-8). There is still so much to do.

This year is especially full of new and exciting opportunities to proclaim the truth of our Creator and His great love for us. Below are ICR’s highest-priority initiatives, listed here in the hope you’ll be led to pray, and give as you are able, to help ICR “do business” for Christ.

  • ICR Discovery Center for Science and Earth History. Without a doubt, this facility is the greatest and most significant undertaking in our history. ICR has uncovered a wealth of scientific evidence that affirms the Bible, and it will be presented in innovative, entertaining, and dynamic ways. ICR has received roughly 90% of the funds needed to open completely debt-free (praise God!), so please prayerfully consider helping ICR close the remaining gap. For the latest updates, visit ICR.org/DiscoveryCenter.
  • Marketing and Promotion. ICR has been called “the best-kept secret in Dallas” due to our low-key promotional approach. The time for that is over. The ICR Discovery Center has outstanding potential to attract and reach a much wider audience of people who remain mired in evolutionary thinking because they’ve never seen the remarkable evidence for recent and special creation. The most effective way to get the word out is through strategic promotion on television and radio, billboards, and print ads. Such promotion is an expensive endeavor, but this is a unique opportunity from the Lord to sow farther and wider than ever before. If we don’t sow, we’ll never reap. Please consider how you could partner with us in this effort.
  • Staff Increases. Research, writing, and speaking comprise the heart of ICR’s work, and these core ministries will not change. But once the ICR Discovery Center comes online and thousands of guests begin to arrive, it’s critical that we find, hire, and train the right ministry-minded people to operate this magnificent facility. This will be a significant addition to our payroll, so please make this a matter of prayer and help if you are able.

ICR is mindful of the financial sacrifices many of you make for our ministry, so thank you for your trust in us. Like Paul, ICR recognizes “a great and effective door has opened” (1 Corinthians 16:9) to reach many more people for Christ, and we invite your prayerful partnership with us to maximize these opportunities. If we remain faithful, it won’t be long before we see the fruit of our labor standing around the throne of God, “for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart” (Galatians 6:9). Until He comes, may God grant you a truly productive New Year in service to Him.
