So Who is Stephen J. Bedard?
That’s a good question. I am a Christian and a husband and a father. But you might want more than that.
I am the pastor of Queen Street Baptist Church in St. Catharines, Ontario. This is actually our hometown and so we are excited to be able to minister in this community.
I love school and education. I have a BBA from Brock University, MDiv, MTh and MA degrees from McMaster Divinity College and I hope to soon graduate with my DMin from Acadia Divinity College.
I am interested in apologetics, partially because I am a skeptic by nature and spent a number of years as an atheist. Ironically, I went into university as an atheist and came out as a Christian. I believe that apologetics has an important role in the Church and that I am called to help people in defending the Christian faith.
I am also interested in disabilities, especially autism. Our two oldest children have autism and live in a group home. I enjoy exploring the intersection of faith and disabilities and I hope to encourage churches to become more welcoming. I point you to my autism blog.
I have an incredible wife (visit her website) and five awesome children. I am also a huge fan of all things J.R.R. Tolkien and an avid reader of World War Two history.
