Eric Hovind grew up immersed in the world of apologetics and following college graduation in 1999, he began full-time ministry. President and Founder of Pensacola-based organization, Creation Today, Eric’s passion to reach people with the life-changing message of the Gospel has driven him to speak in eight foreign countries and all fifty states. He lives in Pensacola, Florida with his wife Tanya and three children and remains excited about the tremendous opportunity to lead an apologetics ministry in the war against evolution and humanism. Much like a 21st-century Apostle Paul on Mars Hill, in June of 2013, Eric stood on the first monument to atheism in America to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the atheist community.
In 2011, Eric launched The Creation Today Show. More than 130 episodes are broadcasting on three continents equipping thousands to continue battling the anti-Christ, anti-Bible spirit that consumes today’s culture with the absolute truth of God’s Word, beginning in Genesis.
Their website reaches 180 countries and passes the ultimate success test measured in transformed lives. Under Eric’s leadership, creation materials are now translated into 42 languages and the Creation Today team is blessed to receive hundreds of testimonies each year from those whose lives have been impacted for eternity. Many highlights from these individuals can be read on the website, www.creationtoday.org.
Creation Today is also in the midst of producing the most ambitious project they have ever undertaken – Genesis:Paradise Lost. The first movie in what they hope will be a trilogy depicts the first chapter of Genesis in full stereoscopic 3D animation, intertwining interviews with leading scientists and theologians. Rivaling anything on Discovery or History Channel, the theatrical projected release of Chapter One is fall of 2017. Pioneering this work is just one of their many endeavors as Eric and the Creation Today team’s mission remains steadfast: impact the world to KNOW and DEFEND their creator—GOD!
