Who is Jon Topping?

“I have always enjoyed the intersection of philosophy and faith. I want to tear down the different roadblocks that hold people back from considering the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My goal is to equip Christians with reasons for their faith and to illuminate the reasonableness of the Gospel to those who wouldn’t otherwise consider it.”

Jon is a speaker and writer for Engage International, an apologist for Power to Change, the writer and host of the Ultimate Questions Podcast, and an apologist for Ratio Christi. He was also an adjunct instructor at Master’s College and Seminary for a decade where he had the privilege of teaching his favourite subjects of Apologetics, Philosophy, Ethics, and World Religions. He has been involved in apologetics evangelism for over 15 years.

Jon offers lessons, workshops, sermons, and Q&A sessions
for campuses, churches, conferences, camps, debates, and more.
