WHAT'S YOUR BRAND?

You know, the companies you drive, wear, and drink. We have become accustomed to living within a cultural identity of brands that to some degree define us to others and increasingly to ourselves. The same is true of our beliefs. Considering how quickly ideologies have come and gone as of late, it's no surprise that we are living in a cultural identity crisis and people are struggling to keep a true perspective of themselves, others, and God. Current research indicates that our youth are struggling to navigate three key questions regarding identity: personal, communal, and spiritual. Apologetics Canada is working on a new 3-part video series to provide discussion and direction as we build our identity on a Biblical foundation that can weather the storms of life.

A general outdoors enthusiast, Nic combines his passion for adventure with his filmmaking career to specialize in outdoor, adventure filmmaking. Originally from a small farming town in Manitoba, he was drawn westward by the endless mountain ranges and beautiful coastlines British Columbia has to offer. His faith plays a big part in his work as he seeks to capture God's holiness as the Creator of the spaces that he explores. Starting out, he worked farm jobs to support himself while filming passion projects on the side until being able to get a job in the industry. Now he works as a freelancer and still gets out to film the things he is most passionate about. Planting himself in Abbotsford, he roots himself in his church community and travels out of town and into the mountains whenever possible.
