Session 7 | Day 12

As Summit comes to a quick close, we are all sad but also enjoy looking back on the fun and educational times that we have had for the last two weeks. Although this has been my second time at a Summit camp, I have continued to learn new things. Today began as a normal day: breakfast, devotionals, and Doctor Noebel…

Session 7 | Day 11

August 29th, 8:15am - Summit ... I woke up with a start this morning as my roommate, John Mark hollered in my ear...... "Bro, I think we are gonna be extremely late to class!" He was jumping out of bed himself and, I, (still 95% asleep) was thinking "It's only around 7 and I'll just skip breakfast and get some…

Session 7 | Day 10

The morning of Tuesday, August 28th came heralded by the cacophony of three cell phone alarms resounding at 6:50. To the four of us girls in room 412, the morning came all too soon (we had stayed up until 1 o'clock girl-talking). Within the next twenty minutes I experienced a cold shower, spilled face lotion, and the realization that 90%…

Session 7 | Day 8

Today was quite interesting around Summit Ministries in beautiful Manitou Springs, CO. It was far from a typical to say the least. Whether students opted to climb to the top of Pikes Peak or sleep in and enjoy a relaxing day around Manitou Springs, the general consensus was that it was fulfilling and satisfying. In this blog I will tell…

Session 7 | Day 7

"There's a certain amount of humility that is attached to wonder, and a certain amount of pride attached to knowledge and I think the moment you say 'we know beyond a shadow of a doubt this exists', you can't have faith that it exists. Faith is no longer possible. So faith is only possible when doubt is possible. Faith is…

Session 7 | Day 6

It's day six here at Summit. I've already made a lot of new friends and I feel like I know the schedules, but it still surprises me to think that almost a week has already gone by. For some reason I can't help but think it's still day two and we have the entire session left here. But I guess…

Session 7 | Day 5

It's day five here at Summit, Session Seven, and it has been a full day. Here are a few highlights... Doc surprised us this morning with the fact that we were going to have a visit from an area congressman. Congressman Lamborn talked to us students about the challenges and persecutions that we will face as Christians and encouraged us…

Session 7 | Day 4

I was awakened this morning from my sweet slumber at 7:00 am by our wonderful night watch-woman, and just like every other day at the Summit Hotel, you have no choice but to hit the ground running. We are served every morning, noon and night a wonderful meal made by a staff that really, honestly seems to like making food…

Session 7 | Day 3

This morning, after a great breakfast and a quick devotion, all of the students headed to the classroom and hit the books full throttle. We got to hear the much anticipated part II, and conclusion, of Dr. JP Moreland's lecture on Post Modernism. After that John Stonestreet took the podium and gave us an amazing session on marriage and family.…

Session 7 | Day 2

Monday, August 20th, today is our first full day, and what a day! The first lecture was given on leadership, by Dr. Robert B. Linden; He spoke on the attitudes a Christian leader needs to develop. It was eye-opening to me, as I saw a whole new perspective on how you view your circumstances, and how your attitudes affect you.…

Hello everybody! Today's the first day in the seventh session. I am very excited to be here and look forward to how the Lord will be working in everybody's hearts. It was a relaxing day as students were arriving. This afternoon I got in some extra rest, explored the town of Manitou Springs with my brother and sister that also…

Session 6 | Day 13

Today has been so fun and so fast! The last day was over by the time I finally woke up! At this point we are all past tired- zombies at best- and the speakers had an incredible task. Dr. Noebel, Chuck Edwards, and Todd Cothran had to sum up two weeks of hard core knowledge for us and tell us…

Session 6 | Day 12

O my Goodness, we have had such an amazing time so far here at Summit! These past two weeks have been packed with info, and I know as much as people don't want to go home, at the same time people are excited to go home and digest/ go over everything we've learned. Yesterday evening was the Sudan Auction -…

Session 6 | Day 11

Twas the night before Wednesday, when all through the hotel, not a creature was stirring at least none that we could tell, when suddenly a sound cracked through the night, as young men woke up for the manly man hike. they stepped out with vigor, they marched forth with glee, the predawn light plain for all to see. but the…
