Mike Day is a senior adjunct speaker for RZIM. He joined the speaking team in September 2016 after graduating from the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics (OCCA). He later completed his post-graduate studies in theology at the University of Oxford. He further holds a post-graduate certificate in education (PGCE) from the University of South Africa and a first-class bachelor’s degree in English literature and classics from the University of Cape Town. Mike has taught English at an all-boys high school and was a member of staff at a church in Cape Town for five years. After studying and working in the UK, Mike is based in Cape Town, as well as speaking in varied contexts across South Africa and Africa.
He is passionate about communicating the reasons for and relevance of the Christian worldview, particularly with respect to the historicity of Jesus and the Bible, identity, ethics, mental health concerns, and questions to do with suffering and meaning. When he isn’t thinking too seriously about these topics, Mike enjoys running, writing, reading, and South African braais.
In Christianity, faith is not a free-floating feeling; it has a firm and reasonable foundation. It is believing God–a decision of the will, pioneered by Christ, and sustained by the Spirit–based in the utter faithfulness of God to Himself, His promises, and all creation.
