Apologetics Canada Ministries (AC) is an evangelical, non-denominational Canadian charity (79927 1143 RR0001) dedicated to equipping the Christian community to understand, defend, and share gospel truth. Gospel truth is focused on primary issues that speak to the foundation of what we believe about the nature of God and people, including humanity's relationship to God and each other. We believe the church is God’s Plan A and there is no Plan B. Accordingly, AC staff and speakers are committed to a local church and the flourishing of the global church.

AC History began in 2010, when Andy and Nancy Steiger established an apologetics organization in BC, Canada, primarily to engage young people—many who were leaving the Christian faith. AC was inspired by the work of Apologetics.com based in Los Angeles, CA. Andy participated on the Apologetics.com radio show where he began to appreciate the effectiveness of understanding the culture and engaging the questions people are asking with the gospel. He began Apologetics.com Canada. Over time, the ".com" fell off but we remain great friends with the Apologetics.com team to this day.

AC Values a fidelity to gospel truth, lived and communicated according to Jesus’ greatest command to love God and people (Matt 22, Mark 12, Luke 10).

AC's Vision is for the Christian community in Canada to be equipped with gospel truth and inspired to share that truth with others.

AC's Mission is to equip Christians across Canada with a biblically sound, intellectually robust, and culturally engaged faith, to effectively participate in the Great Commission within a local church that loves God and people.

AC's Accountability extends from our board, to staff, to our self-imposed audit of financial statements. AC seeks to operate at the highest level of integrity. As reported by Loewen Kruse, Chartered Professional Accountants, the “financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Society as at December 31, 2022.” If you would like to see the full Independent Auditor’s Report, please contact Nancy Steiger at [email protected].


Apologetics comes from the Greek word apologia, meaning to give an answer or reason, specifically for Christian truth claims. The Apostle Peter exhorts all Christians to be prepared to give answers and reasons for the hope we have in Christ and to do so with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15). In other words, apologetics is about Christians understanding what they believe and why, and knowing how to communicate those beliefs effectively. We believe apologetics is a key task of discipleship and for the health and growth of the church. Apologetics is not a new trend but a Christian tradition. It has been a critical task of Christians for millennia and is as important today as ever before.
