Clarke Skelton is the new consultant with Asian ministries in the office of associational missions and church planting at the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions.
In this role, Skelton will work part-time building relationships with the state’s Korean churches and other Asian American congregations and developing conferences geared toward those groups. In the past, he has served as a pastor and as an International Mission Board missionary in South Korea.
“In the same way Annel Robayna (consultant for intercultural ministries) has been developing conferences for Hispanic churches, he is going to be working with Clarke to develop conferences for Korean churches,” said Rick Barnhart, director of the SBOM office of associational missions and church planting. “We want to build intercultural relationships in Alabama and work together on next-generation ministries.”
