Alumnus of Gardner-Webb University to Speak at Dimensions

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—The Dimensions program at Gardner-Webb University is pleased to welcome Clayton King, a former graduate and the founder and president of Crossroads Worldwide Ministries.  The world-famous evangelist and author will share the Gospel on Tuesday, September 13 at 9:25 in the Paul Porter Arena, located inside the Lutz-Yelton Convocation Center (LYCC).

King trusted Christ at the age of 14 and began preaching in prisons and churches.  King has since preached in 31 countries and 45 states including Kenya, Egypt, India, Nepal, and Malaysia, just to name a few.  In 1995, he founded Crossroads, a non-profit organization based out of Boiling Springs that promotes evangelism and discipleship around the globe through a variety of ministries, mission trips, and mentoring networks. But its primary ministry is its summer camps, which more than 40,000 students have attended over the past 16 summers.  In total, King has shared the gospel with more than three million people since 1987.

An author of six books, King continues to find new ways to communicate the truths of the Gospel to new audiences.  Dr. Tracy Jessup, vice president for Christian life and service and senior minister to the University, says he “has deep respect for King’s gift to share the Gospel and his passion for Christ.”

Tuesday’s Dimensions will also feature a musical performance by Gardner-Webb students Jake Willis and Chelsea Hathaway.
