Keynote Speaker Christchurch | Dan Paterson

Ravi Zacharias International Ministries | Australia

Dan Paterson is a speaker with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries based in Brisbane, Australia. After some family tragedies in his childhood that raised a series of barriers to belief in God, Dan came to Christ at eighteen years old through an investigation of the New Testament. The towering figure of Jesus of Nazareth and his response to suffering moved him to faith.

Given this background and his involvement in speaking to youth, Dan developed a driving passion to study theology and apologetics in order to help make sense of the Christian faith for skeptics and spiritual seekers. He completed a bachelor’s and master’s degree in ministry and theology in Australia as well as the one-year course at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics.
