Session 3| Day 13

There are no words that could adequately describe the past two weeks. This was my second time attending the Summit as a student, and I did not think it would be possible to top my first trip in 2005. Well, it did!! We had an incredible group of students of whom I was very proud to be a part. Our…

He spoke on the subject of Leadership and the Christian history of our founding fathers and their impact on our country. To me, this was very important…

Session 3 | Day 11

Wow. Today was absolutely amazing. As Doctor Noebel usually says, "...More fun than a human ought to have." This morning, I woke up at about 7:15 am. The previous night was extremely hot, so our room had left the fan on at full blast all night. As I woke up, I was overcome with severe chills. Little did I know,…

Session 3 | Day 10

I came to Summit Ministries, thinking that nobody could change my atheistic beliefs. I had grown up in a Christian home (and my father was actually a pastor of a Presbyterian church) so I had been shown a lot of love and support from many Christians. However, I grew up in a very liberal environment, where I was taught that…

Session 3 | Day 9

I came to Summit Ministries with an open mind. My parents sent me because I will be going to a secular college and they want me to have a strong foundation for the faith that I possess. I am so glad that God put this ministry on their heart because I have learned so much already, and we still have…

Session 3 | Day 8

On June 24th, in the 2007th year of our Lord, the ardently determined students of Summit Ministries undertook the daunting tasks of scaling Pike's Peak and rafting the mighty Arkansas River. Both groups began their adventures at 6:00 am and returned by 2:00 this afternoon. Roughly 50 young men and women rose to the lofty height of 14,110 feet above…

Today was our first long sports time and cookout at the park!!! It was a beautiful day, and although rain is nice, we were glad thunderstorms did not cut our time short. grin I was mainly on the volleyball front, where the pros were amazing to watch and the speed volleyball was fast and…

Session 3 | Day 6

Coming to Summit, I never anticipated just how good the speakers would be. Mark Cahill was the only one I had heard before, so I suspected they would be good. Wow. I am amazed I haven't heard of them before. Today, Mr. and Mrs. Nutting, a geologist and biologist respectively, came and spoke to us on the subject of evolution.…

Session 3 | Day 5

"If you do not engage the culture, the culture will engage you."—Mark Cahill "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect..." 1 Peter 3:15 What an incredible summary of the overall teachings of Summit! And what a fitting summary…

Session 3 | Day 4

Today is Wednesday which means that we are half–way through our first week already. The amount of knowledge that we have obtained in the time that we have been here has been fantastic. Although frustrating at times, the idea that we must understand what we believe is a given. I enjoy many of the speakers, but being that this is…

Session 3 | Day 3

The second full day at Summit! This morning I woke up much earlier than I'm used to in order to try to fight for one of the 9 or 10 showers available for the 90–some girls here. Victory was achieved and what was even more awesome, the water temp wasn't 20 degrees! Sessions were all incredibly deep and thought–provoking; the…

Session 3 | Day 2

God is great!!! It is amazing how God's hand has led so many like minded people here to Colorado to glorify Him. Dr. Linden started this day off with a awesome message on leadership by trusting in God's sovereignty. No human has the right to grumble or complain because God has control all to come about for His own glory.…

Session 3 | Day 1—Day of Destiny

It sounds so melodramatic, doesn't it? Day of Destiny. And yet, isn't that what we live our lives for? Something to break us out of the routine, the normal, the every day... something to be our Day of Destiny after which we know that we can never be the same. It's my prayer that today is that day for each…

Session 2 | Day 13

Our time at SUMMIT came to an end today, I am not sure how to feel. It is a feeling of excitement to go into the world and use the knowledge that I have gained over the course of the two weeks. But it also means leaving good friends that were complete strangers to me two weeks ago. At the…

Session 2 | Day 12

Well, today started off with another 7am wake–up. Though this time with the clanging of a pot instead of that infernal bell. Following another excellent breakfast, we made our way to the classroom to begin the day. Unfortunately, Doc Noebel left last night to speak at a home–school conference in Denver so we missed him and his Bible hour this…
