When skeptics challenge my faith, I want to have thought out answers. I believe this is only reasonable and right for me to do. My goal is to pass along any knowledge I have so others can also make a defense for Christianity.
If you have the same above vision, I hope we can work together to help educate others to be winsome ambassadors for Christ. I would love to have a conversation with your group, conference or organization on the evidence for faith.
Two bios are included, a short (under 50 words) and a long.
Society is constantly pressuring us to conform to secular ideas. Is your family prepared? Daniel is one of the “ground guys” on the college campus and helps train and equip families for the real world challenges against their faith.
Daniel grew up with five siblings and was home educated K-12. After high school, he went on to earn a technology education degree and a biology graduate degree. In addition, he is a graduate of the Discovery Institute Summer Seminar, an intensive training in science, philosophy and intelligent design.
This unique educational background has opened doors for him in various professional careers including graphic design, industrial design, line art, information technology and healthcare. In addition, since 2009, he has taught biology and technology at the college, high school and Jr. high levels.
While biology and technology may seem like a strange duo, he sees them as being quite compatible. This distinct background gives him an eye for designs found in nature, designs that point to the Creator. Because of his background and interest in these areas, and desire to have answers for those who ask, he founded iApologia. iApologia is a platform where he shares on Science, Reason and Christianity.
Over the years, various venues have invited him to speak, including churches, conferences (homeschool, creation/apologetics, evangelism, etc.), campus student groups and classroom settings. The topics included such things as science, social issues, equipping, pre-college preparation, apologetics, intelligent design and creation.
Also, he is a speaker for the Midwest Creation Fellowship, Creation Evidence Expo and for Ratio Christi. Locally, he is actively involved with a Ratio Christi university campus chapter where he interacts with real world questions and challenges. His writing has been published in a number of media outlets such as Salvo, The Creation Club and iApologia.
Daniel did a fabulous job in speaking at our chapter. He is accustomed to relating and speaking to college aged students and at his presentation there were at least four phd’s that enjoyed him. He is very knowledgeable of his subject matter and handled q and a very well. He well exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend him.

My name is Trent Parrish, I am a Junior Health Science Major at Bradley University. I have listened to two presentations by Mr. Currier. Each presentation was clear, precise, and direct as well as informative, defending, and persuading. The presentations were very well prepared, I thought he did a really nice job. On the presenting side, he did a really good job moving throughout the front of the room to keep the audience’s attention. Also, it really sticks out how genuine he was to people, and he was passionate. As a student leader who is concerned about Truth being proclaimed, I would highly recommend him as a speaker.

How does the Christian address this massive and volatile topic? [Equipping Students and Parents]
I thought yesterday was super helpful. You gave some good, strong arguments and our students really appreciated it. I thought you did a great job respectfully questioning evolution while sharing your views in humility. Not sure if you noticed this, but a lot of people wrote down your info at the end. It was obvious that you really enjoy helping young people strengthen convictions and know why they believe what they do. Thanks again for taking the time to help strengthen our students in their confidence before God and others.
