Session 4 | Day 2

I sit here in the lobby of the beloved Summit hotel and initially, given that this is only the second night, I feared that I would not have much to blog about. However, having anticipated this moment all evening I have realized that after a mere 48 hours, lives have been changed. To my right is a group of rambunctious…

Session 3 | Day 13

I have been asked to do the impossible... share about my experience here at Summit in a few paragraphs. That's like asking the sun to rise in the west, or expecting Wile E. Coyote to actually catch Road Runner. However, I will give it a valiant effort and hope for the best! You could almost hear the collective sigh as…

Session 3 | Day 12

How can I thank the Lord for all He has done for me? There are no words, He is so good! I believe that He has worked these past two weeks for His glory, honor, and praise. I have to admit, it was really hard for me to adjust to The Summit at first, as this was the first time…

Session 3 | Day 11

My two weeks here at Summit have been an eye opening experience! The things that I have learned have equipped me to be more effective for the Gospel as I move into my college years. Not only do I know more about the world around me, I walk away with a confidence in my faith that is new and vibrant.…

Session 3 | Day 10

My experience with Summit Ministries thus far has surpassed any expectations I could have previously had. The Summit is one of those places where you can be honest about who you are and where you are in your spiritual development. For example, one of the first things we were told when we got here was that no question is out…

Session 3 | Day 9

Hi Friends, Another beautiful day at Summit is winding down, and the students are hopefully falling deep into a restful sleep. Today started out similar to most days here--the students went to some awesome sessions. Dr. Noebel kicked off the morning talking about the Bible (always a good thing to talk about).

Session 3 | Day 8

This morning at Summit started a little differently than the previous mornings. Something along the lines of: "Good Morning, it is 5:15 a.m. if you are planning on climbing Pikes Peak meet in the lobby at 5:40, if you are going White-water rafting meet at the picnic tables at 5:45. If you are not planning on doing either you can…

Session 3 | Day 7

As an upcoming college freshman with 12 years of Christian education under my belt, I figured I needed some help in the area of defending my faith at a public college that will present issues I've never dealt with before. That, combined with a family tradition of attending Summit the summer before freshman year got me here right now. And…

Session 3 | Day 6

Life at the Summit today began with fellowship in the dining hall over a delicious meal of biscuits and gravy. Doc began the morning of learning with Bible hour where we discussed important reasons to study the Bible. After a short break, Eric Smith lectured about on the moral compass and how it impacts our lives. This talk was followed…

Session 3 | Day 5

Today radio show host Hugh Hewitt gave us enough reading material to keep us busy for the next sixteen weeks, according to Dr. Noeble's book-a-week policy. The authors ranged from scientists to philosophers to Winston Churchill. He also gave us a number of tips in the vein of How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. Life lessons…

Session 3 | Day 4

I have no alarm. None. My cell phone now lives in the upper left desk drawer in my room. Thus my 6:30 rise and shine time is entirely dependent on the good will, and good memory of my roomie: Hannah. Thank goodness for her this morning! I swear, 6:30 comes earlier every morning! And so, I roll out of bed…

Session 3 | Day 3

Summit is one of the greatest place on earth! Why, you might ask. Well, as a second time student, I'd like to answer that question or at least why I personally believe that statement. As a second timer I'm one of the few--I believe that there are probably 8 of us that were here last year, or within the last…

My day at the Summit has been amazing, and truly a wonderful experience, one that I will never forget.

I have been sooooooo overwhelmed, I can't even believe it is just the first day. ame to the Summit, I did…

Session 2 | Day 12

I am 19 years old and I'll be a sophomore in college this fall. I'm writing this blog to tell you a little bit about how God has been working through my life during my time at Summit Ministries. Before I do that, I'm going to give you a little background information about myself. I grew up in a Christian…
