Meet the Speakers
Abdu Murray
Abdu Murray is North American Director with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and is the author of two books, including his latest, Grand Central Question: Answering the Critical Concerns of the Major Worldviews. For most of his life, Abdu was a proud Muslim who studied the Qur’an and Islam. After a nine year investigation into the historical, philosophical, and scientific underpinnings of the major world religions and views, Abdu discovered that the historic Christian faith alone can answer the questions of the mind and the longings of the heart.
Abdu has spoken to diverse international audiences and has participated in debates and dialogues across the globe. He has appeared as a guest on numerous radio and television programs all over the world and hosts Embrace the Truth with Abdu Murray, a podcast heard worldwide.
Abdu holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Michigan and earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School. As an attorney, Abdu was named several times in Best Lawyers in America and Michigan Super Lawyer. Abdu is the Scholar in Residence of Christian Thought and Apologetics at the Josh McDowell Institute of Oklahoma Wesleyan University.
Abdu lives in the Detroit area with his wife and their three children.
Nathan BettS
Nathan Betts is an apologist with RZIM. He frequently speaks on university campuses across the US and Canada, and regularly addresses church congregations. Nathan has written curricula on basic Christianity and apologetics for several major churches in North America and the UK, and his writing has been featured in Converge magazine. Nathan also co- wrote and co-presented RZIM’s Short Answers to Big Questions video series.
Nathan completed his undergraduate degree at Tyndale University and his MA in Bible and Ministry at King’s College London. He is also a graduate of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics. He is an avid percussionist and a keen baseball fan. Nathan and his wife, Brittany, live near Seattle, WA, with their two young children.
Sanj KalrA
Sanj Kalra is a speaker for RZIM. He was born in New Delhi, India, and comes from a Hindu background. His family immigrated to Ottawa, Canada, where he grew up through high school. He was then awarded a tennis scholarship at the University of Akron, Ohio, where he was graduated with a degree in Business Management. He has worked in the medical device sales industry for over twenty years.
Despite enjoying unprecedented personal success, Sanj eventually went spinning out of control until, in a state of deep crisis, he had a dramatic encounter with Jesus Christ in June of 2010. Until that point, pleasure and indulgence were all he lived for. The transformation that Jesus brought to him is one of the most remarkable testimonies of our time. He joined the RZIM team in 2015 and now shares his story and messages throughout the globe. The impact he has
is particularly felt among the young and the business world. He has spoken at churches and conferences where the response has always been heartwarming.
As part of the RZIM team, Sanj’s role also includes being the Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at RZIM. He is married to Kay and they are blessed with two daughters.
