Mike is currently an itinerant 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 bachelors 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 now based in Cape Town but speaks in varied contexts across South Africa and Africa. As a committed follower of Jesus, 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, issues of mental health, and questions to do with suffering and meaning. When he isn’t thinking too seriously about these issues, Mike enjoys running, writing, reading, and South African braais.
