Speaker and AiG–Canada Executive Director

Calvin has spoken at churches across Canada (and sometimes internationally) on creation apologetics since 2001. He is well known for his ability to engage audiences of all ages and being able to communicate theological concepts and scientific information in an easy-to-understand manner.

Calvin is the host of Creation Basics—a five-minute show designed to make God’s creation part of your everyday conversation. It provides a brief, daily dose of relevant, apologetic content tackling a specific issue. We trust the Lord will use to this show to equip his people and challenge the non-believer to trust the Word of God.

Calvin was formerly on the pastoral staff of a church in Guelph, Ontario, overseeing the youth and small group ministries. Through working with young people inside the church and with a small group at the University of Guelph, Calvin personally witnessed the devastation brought by the teaching of evolutionary rationalism. But he also saw the life-transforming effect of biblical answers that shows God’s Word can be trusted from the very first verse.

He is now the executive director and speaker for Answers in Genesis–Canada, and is excited about bringing the ministry of Answers in Genesis to Canada.

Calvin lives with his wife in Ingersoll, Ontario. His hobbies include music and wrestling.
