LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A huge Noah’s Ark attraction nearing completion in Kentucky will soon be searching for hundreds of job applicants to fill food service, ticketing and other theme park-related positions.

They’ll be hiring 300 to 400 workers to fill the 510-foot long Ark Encounter before it opens in July.

And all must be Christian.

Ken Ham, founder of the ministry Answers in Genesis, says the workers will be required to sign a statement saying they’re Christian and “profess Christ as their savior.”

The group won a federal court ruling in January that clarified that it can make religious-based hires even as it seeks a Kentucky tourism tax incentive worth millions.

Answers in Genesis, which will run the ark’s operations, promotes a literal reading of the biblical stories like Noah’s.
