At Creation Today we are always looking for innovative ways to share the Gospel with those who don’t know Jesus Christ, creatively using the Science around us to point to the Scriptures and the Salvation message. Here’s our latest CRAZY IDEA that we believe you will TOTALLY LOVE!
HOW IT GOT STARTED
Six years ago I began leading tours of the Grand Canyon with my good friend, Russ Miller. On my very first trip, I was amazed by the clear evidence that a judgment on this world had taken place. All I wanted to do was tell the people around me that these rocks were crying out! They were screaming for all to see that judgment had taken place.
Every trip we took, year after year, I would see lives changed as people realized the “flood” of evidence surrounding the formation of the canyon and the global catastrophe it implied. From there, walking people through the knowledge sin in their own lives and the need for the Savior was simple. I just kept thinking, what if we could take everyone on this journey from Science to Scripture to Savior? What if these rocks could tell their story to the world? Eventually the desire grew into a vision. Allow me to share it with you.
SEE THE VISION
This year 6.5 million people will visit the Grand Canyon. The vast majority of them will drive for hours, pay an entrance fee, find a parking spot, then walk over to one of the most majestic scenes on earth as they peer over the canyon edge. The breathtaking view will fill their mind with wonder and give them a feeling of insignificance like few places on earth can do. After a few hours and perhaps a hike, they will get back into their vehicle and continue their journey through the desert.
So what would it look like to seize that moment of wonder in a person’s life? What if Christians took advantage of one of the biggest mission outreach opportunities the world has ever seen? Well, on this year’s Grand Canyon Tour, I brought our film crew to begin turning this dream into a reality. We spent 5 days filming for our new project, www.GrandCanyonMovie.com.
Call me crazy, but our vision is to produce an intriguing documentary, less than 30 minutes long, that will strategically take people from the canyon’s science to their need for salvation. Think about all the ways this could be used to reach the 6.5 million people who go to the Canyon every year! Here are just a few of our ideas:
- Billboards inviting tourists to experience the wonders of the canyon at www.GrandCanyonMovie.com.
- Weekend missionaries who strike up conversations and share a card about www.GrandCanyonMovie.com.
- Tourists who share the “Flood” of evidence with others during their visit to the canyon.
- Full-time missionaries funded to engage tourists at the canyon.
- Social media warriors who share www.GrandCanyonMovie.com with friends online.
The simple invitation will direct the reader to a website where they can watch the movie absolutely FREE! Using scientific facts, the movie will take them on a non-confrontational journey which ultimately leads them to the Scriptures and the Salvation message!
SHARE THE VISION!
As usual, I dream bigger than I can execute, but God has a way of giving us a vision that we can’t do all by ourselves, otherwise we would try to take the credit! A goal this big needs lots of prayer and financial support. I know you share our passion to see others come to Christ and that is why I am sharing this vision with you. We would consider it an honor to partner with you on this God-Sized project.

This month, our goal is to raise $10,000 toward the Grand Canyon Movie Project production. Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us as we begin creating this unique, visual, evangelistic tool to give the glory for Grand Canyon back to God alone. I can’t wait to see how God is going to use our efforts together for His glory!
