Eric Hovind grew up immersed in the world of apologetics and following college graduation in 1999, he began full-time ministry. After watching “Hell’s Best Kept Secret“ by Ray Comfort, Eric came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ with a desire to make Him known throughout the world. 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. 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.
Hovind has produced 132 episodes of The Creation Today Show which broadcasts on three continents, equipping thousands with the absolute truth of God’s Word beginning in Genesis. The Creation Today website reaches 190 countries and passes the ultimate success test measured in transformed lives. Under Hovind’s leadership, creation materials have been 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 testimonies can be read on the website, www.creationtoday.org.
Desiring synergy for the many creation organizations, Hovind began the Creation Network with three websites already launched including: SearchCreation.org, VisitCreation.org, CreationEvents.org, with several more sites near integration. Excited to have completed their most ambitious undertaking to date, their seven-year 3D film project, GENESIS: Paradise Lost screens in theaters November 13, 2017. The first movie in what they hope will be a trilogy depicts the first chapter of Genesis in full stereoscopic Real D 3D animation, intertwining interviews with leading scientists and theologians. 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!
Eric lives in Pensacola, Florida with his wife Tanya and three children and they enjoy anything outdoors including building projects, riding motorcycles, hiking, and going to the beach. Hovind also remains undefeated in rubber band shooting contests.
