Dan Paterson

Dan is a speaker for RZIM based in Australia. An ordained pastor, Dan speaks regularly to audiences on how the gospel connects to life’s biggest questions and on the popular objections to the Christian faith, particularly on the question of suffering.

Dan Paterson is an itinerant speaker with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and based in Brisbane, Australia. Growing up with a Christian heritage, a terrible accident in his childhood raised barriers to belief in God. It was roughly a decade later that Dan came to Christ through an investigation of the New Testament, in which Jesus of Nazareth’s response to human suffering eroded Dan’s skepticism.

Given this background and his ministry speaking to young people, 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 theology in Australia before traveling to Oxford to complete the one-year course at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics.

Having preached all over the world, Dan returned to Brisbane to pastor and train Christians. After serving seven years as an ordained pastor and working at Malyon College part-time lecturing and leading the Traverse Centre, Dan then joined the RZIM speaking team in 2015. He now speaks regularly to audiences on how the gospel connects to life’s biggest questions and on the popular objections to the Christian faith. Dan is married to Erin, and they have two young sons, Josiah and Zachariah.

We don’t just need a few apologists as evangelical champions for the masses, we need apologetically-minded churches that make space for doubt, address key questions, and embody God’s gospel with grace and hospitality.
