Delegates at this year’s annual conference of the Association of Christian Media (ACM) will focus on ‘reclaiming the culture’.
The conference will be held at the Ocean View Hotel, Cape Town, from June 19 to 21, says the ACM in a media release.
The keynote speaker will be Dr Mark Manley, a seasoned leadership consultant with a background in media, politics, business and ministry.
The conference, which is open to all Christians, will provide opportunities for strategic networking as well as for discussion around Christian media’s potential to shape and mould the culture of the future and also on how to approach contentious topics. Other highlights will include workshops that deal with more practical issues such as finances, management and brand development, and a gala dinner with an inspirational speech and leading Gospel artists.
Manley’s experience positions him to as an authority on media and on the strategic decisions that ministries and businesses can make to not only survive but thrive and reclaim the culture.
He has hosted many different magazine, talk and live programmes on national radio and TV. Accumulatively he has been producing or presenting content on the national media almost weekly for over 20 years. His ministry involvement includes a number of leadership positions and co-ordinating the South African Christian Leadership Assembly, one of the most widely representative gatherings of its kind in world history.
Maney was involved in the fight for democracy and in transitional politics and was mayor of Randburg during the early nineties. Today he leads his own consultancy specialising in the areas of Strategy, Leadership and Transformation.
Conference registration forms can be downloaded from the ACM website. Early bird registration rates will be available until April 19 and registration closes on May 3.
