Word recording artist Ben Glover to perform at Journalism Conf.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–Word Recording artist Ben Glover will perform an unplugged concert Sept. 28 at the Baptist Press Student Journalism Conference, according to Will Hall, vice president for news services and executive editor of Baptist Press, the national news service of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Glover, 22, will perform for conference attendees at a coffeehouse dessert fellowship following the Friday night keynote address by Scripps Howard columnist Terry Mattingly.

Coffee is being provided by Starbucks and desserts are being provided by the Women’s Ministry of The Peoples Church in Franklin, Tenn.

“We think this is a wonderful idea to bring our Baptist college students together and the ladies are looking forward to making desserts,” said Ann Towns, director of Women on Mission at The Peoples Church.

The concert is just one segment of the three-day journalism conference, Hall said.

“Being in the center of the Christian music industry, we thought it would be great for our college students to have an exclusive concert with an up-and-coming artist,” Hall said. “The coffeehouse concert is a great chance for everyone to enjoy desserts and late night entertainment.”

Glover’s Word debut, “26 Letters,” showcases his love of guitar-driven pop.

“I think we’ve made an album that can be enjoyed musically and my hope is that it will help people deepen their walk with the Lord,” Glover said. “I hope the album challenges people and even scares a few people. We need to be honest and straightforward with the Gospel and issues of faith.”
