Our apologist and itinerant speaker, Shiv Zacharias, accepts invitations to lecture at various outreach events. These lectures aim to engage different worldviews and point others to Christ. She also accepts requests to instruct evangelists and missionaries to convey the Gospel message with clarity by removing misconceptions. Moreover, she is passionate to help equip laypeople to defend their faith in Christ. She is currently developing a mentorship program that will encompass these objectives.
Born in Canada into a Sikh family, Shiv Zacharias studied world religions in high school as part of her quest to find God. A good friend in her class encouraged Shiv to read the Bible. Shiv was interested in Jesus and began attending a church youth group with school friends. Christianity’s “grace without conditions” drew her. “The idea of unconditional love was one I never grew up with. It was a very foreign concept, but a persuasive one.” At 19, Shiv committed her life to Christ.
Later Shiv did her BSc and BEd in physics, mathematics and religion from the University of Toronto, where she met her Christian husband, Andrew Zacharias. Upon receiving her family’s full blessing to wed him, she then completed training at the RZIM Centre for Christian Apologetics in Chennai (India) and studied at the University of Oxford.
Over the years, Shiv has spoken at various churches, university settings, and other religious and secular institutions in Canada, the UK and India. As an apologist for The Jesus Network, she desires to persuasively share Jesus without compromise.
