CMF Banquet to Support Students Called to Ministry

March 7, 2018

Anderson University Christian Ministry Foundation Banquet

The Anderson University Christian Ministry Foundation is hosting Dr. Frank Page, President and CEO of the Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee, at its annual banquet on Tuesday, April 10. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. in AU’s G. Ross Anderson, Jr. Student Center.

Dr. Page was named to his current post in 2010, overseeing the convention work of more than 46,000 churches and 16 million members. Previously he served as President of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) from 2006 to 2008.

The Anderson University Christian Ministry Foundation (CMF) is an endowed scholarship program designed to benefit AU’s undergraduate students called to full-time ministry.

“Most of us have people in our lives who helped us get where we are," said Dr. Bob Cline, Vice President for Church Relations and Senior Campus Pastor at AU. "They invested in us when we needed it the most. And for many of us, that time is when we were young or just getting started in business or beginning in ministry. Their support made a difference. The CMF is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of students who are called by God and are preparing for a ministry career. These students have a strong sense of call, an intentional commitment to follow Jesus, and a real financial need as they work through college to get the training they need to begin vocational ministry.”  

Reservations are now being accepted. To attend, send a check for $15 per person, payable to Anderson University, to the Office of Development at 316 Boulevard, Anderson, SC 29621. For more information, please contact Mimsy Barfoot at 864-231-2101, or by email to
