Simon Brace is the Regional Director of Ratio Christi in South Africa where he also serves as RC’s Chapter Director at the North West University. Simon was involved with the original establishment of Ratio Christi and continues his roll as a member of RC’s Board of Directors. He comes to us from his previous post as Director of Evangelism for Southern Evangelical Seminary

Simon moved to South Africa at a young age where he completed school and gained a diploma in Land Surveying. He worked as an Engineering Surveyor in construction for a number of years in different countries before moving the United States to pursue studies in Theology. He holds a BA in Theology and MA in Apologetics and Philosophy from Southern Evangelical Seminary where he also served as the Director of the Missions program called TEAM. Simon had the privilege of leading many groups from Southern Evangelical Seminary to teach and train in the local Churches in a number of countries.

Simon is married to Nel and they have four children: Eva, Olivia, Cai and Joshua. The Braces currently live in Potchefstroom, South Africa. Simon loves fishing, sport, and in recent years has taken an interest in woodworking; the end result being an infinite regress of projects that have now to be built for Nel.
