Patricia Engler serves as a speaker, writer and youth outreach coordinator for Answers in Genesis (AiG) Canada. Her passion for biblical apologetics ignited at age 14, when she first heard a seminar by AiG founder Ken Ham.
After 12 years of homeschooling, Patricia completed a BSc with distinction at a liberal Canadian university. There, she studied intensely evolutionary courses to learn firsthand how Christian students can navigate secular education without compromising their biblical worldview. Her experiences showed her the importance of Biblical teaching, apologetics and mentors for students, with her own long-time mentor being Dr. Margaret Helder (PhD biology).
To learn from other students’ experiences, Patricia backpacked 360° around the world solo in 180 days, documenting how Christian students in multiple countries kept their faith during university. Now, she is excited to equip youth across Canada with the message of biblical authority that AiG proclaims. Using AiG resources, the tools she developed, and insights from students she met worldwide, she provides invaluable “real world” training to Christian youth and young adults in how to navigate secular education. In her spare time, Patricia can often be found adventuring outdoors, exploring back roads, or playing ukulele.
Patricia is a passionate and engaging communicator who speaks to a variety of audiences. She is available for speaking at children’s/family, youth, young adult, and women’s events/conferences. Patricia’s presentations encompass biblical apologetics, critical thinking, and her personal testimony of her amazing 360 in 180 journey that are sure to inspire, equip, and encourage believers of all ages.
