Clayton King felt called into ministry on the same night God saved him. He surrendered to that call and has since preached to almost 2 million people in 25 countries and 45 states. He graduated from Gardner-Webb University with a degree in Religious Studies. He travels most of the year speaking on college campuses for FCA, InterVarsity, BSU and Campus Crusade for Christ. He also speaks at numerous national youth conferences, camps, and retreats, as well as dozens of youth rallies and churches of different denominations. Audiences of all ages respond to his honest and clear style of sharing the Gospel as well as his warm personality and sense of humor.
Clayton is also the founder and president of Crossroads Worldwide. This nonprofit, interdenominational ministry now includes Crossroads summer camps, winter conferences, ministry summits, ministry forums, and mission trips. He is the author of three books and the founder of two bands: Monogamous Fish (1995-1997) and Adam’s Housecat (1997-present).
Clayton and his wife, Sharie, live in South Carolina with their two amazing boys, Jacob and Joseph.
