The Anderson University College of Christian Studies and Clamp Divinity School is hosting a one-day conference for church leaders that will explore “Effective Ministry in a Distracted Age.” The conference, part of Clamp Divinity’s MinistryU series, takes place on the AU campus on August 4 from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

‘“MinistryU is a day packed with learning opportunities for pastors and church leaders,” said Dr. Michael Duduit, dean of the Anderson University College of Christian Studies and Clamp Divinity School. “Coming out of a pandemic and serving in a culture shaped by social media, we are all ministering in a different world than the one we served just a few years ago. Our goal will be to provide a toolbox of insights and skills to help church leaders minister more effectively in this distracted age in which we live.”

Rev. Don Wilton, senior pastor of First Baptist Simpsonville and current president of the South Carolina Baptist Convention is among the keynote speakers. The conference will also feature a number of practical workshop sessions focused on pastoral ministry, youth ministry, worship leadership, children’s ministry and media ministry, along with sessions on discipleship, preaching and leadership. Workshop leaders include Todd Adkins, director of Leadership Development at LifeWay Christian Resources and Lee Clamp, chief strategic officer for the South Carolina Baptist Convention.

In addition to learning opportunities during general sessions and workshops, each participant will receive a gift bag of books and ministry resources. Advance registration is $25 per person ($35 at the door.) It includes all sessions and workshops, lunch, and the resource collection. For every four paid registrants from a church, they will receive an additional free registration.

“We encourage churches to send their whole leadership team,” Dr. Duduit said. “MinistryU is one of the most productive and cost-effective ways they can invest in their leadership and in the work of their churches.”

Other sponsors include the South Carolina Baptist Convention and LifeWay Christian Resources. To learn more or register, call (864) 328-1809, or visit
