Session 2 | Day 11

Many of us are lamenting that the days we spend here at Summit are waning. Every day brings a more intense learning curve of information, and during every speaker's presentation, we furiously scribble notes as they share all of their expertise. Of the dozen speakers that we've heard in the past ten days, Dr. Michael Bauman's topics (the meaning of…

Session 2 | Day 10

Another day at Summit ticks by, bringing us closer to the end. Everyone seems sobered by the fact that we can not stay here forever. New friends are preparing for separation and tears are already being shed in anticipation of returning to their old lives in the real world. But every tear is worth it, because I don't think that…

Session 2 | Day 8

Today was day eight here at Summit! It has been an amazing experience so far. God is awesome and has continued to teach us new things each day! After getting a wake up call at 5:15am, I somehow rolled out of bed, got on a bus, and headed out for white water rafting on the Arkansas River. Although the water…

Session 2 | Day 7

Hello, friends and family! As most of you know, here at Summit the speakers and staff have helped thousands of students gain wisdom and understanding by teaching them what a Christian's worldview is, as well as showing them what secular worldviews teach. Wisdom and understanding's value and importance can be found countless times in the Bible; the following verse is…

Session 2 | Day 6—Take 2!

In the morning we started out with breakfast. The wake up bell rang at 7am. Rising I dressed and strolled down to the cafeteria; where I found a wonderful breakfast of biscuits and gravy from our amazing cooks. Just to let you know we actually get real homemade food. Woooo Whoooo! After eating breakfast it was time to officially start…

Session 2 | Day 6—The Summit Sonnet

Here we sit in Colorado… A room filled with the rooms of tomorrow. Learning how to defend what we will say, When we stand for Christ in our schools each day. Christianity dies on CNN news, We see the rise of five other worldviews. Alone against, muslims, atheists and jews, Truth dies as relativity ensues.

Session 2 | Day 5

Today started out very windy, but God's majesty still shined through! The wind gusts were up to 75 mph! During all of that it was still very sunny and we were ready to learn about God's word. Getting up very early can be difficult for us because we get so little sleep. It really blesses me to see strangers introducing…

Session 2 | Day 4

Hey! It's news from Manitou Springs once again! It's been tough sleeping for only 6 hours, but the speakers are CAPTIVATING! Mark Cahill, a former basketball player for Auburn University, spoke very convictingly on witnessing. He told many stories about him witnessing to people from all walks of life including Tiger Woods, Charles Barkley, and Michael Jordan. He uses things…

Session 2 | Day 3

Well, today my roommate's phone alarm went of at 5:45. I was planning on sleeping in until 6:45… that didn't happen, though I did get some great shots of the sunrise on the mountains! Today we had Kevin Bywater speak about Islam and the Gospels. I was really excited about the Islam session because in St. Cloud we have a…

Session 2 | Day 2

Day number two of Summit Ministries and session two is starting out really well. I requested to write on the second day because I didn't think I would have much to say about check-in and everything on Sunday, but honestly, even the first day was a blog-worthy experience as my learning experience started last night. First off, the staff here…

Session 2 | Day 1—So it begins…

After spending an entire session at Summit I have found that my definition of "day" is slightly messed up. Night Watch does that to a man (or woman). I've never considered myself a "night person," but I think I've mostly adjusted to my new work schedule of 10pm–4am each day. I will admit, however, that I still suffer pangs of…

Session 1 | Day 13

A few days before I arrived at The Summit I was doubting whether or not I made the right decision to take two weeks off work to attend. I had to justify it in my mind by saying that I was going to get 3 college credit hours. It only took a day to realize that God had definitely been…
