For 53 years, Summit Ministries has been teaching young adults how to champion a biblical worldview and to strengthen their faith in this post-christian culture.

Over 15 Christian thought leaders, such as Sean and Josh McDowell, J. Warner Wallace, and Brett Kunkle will mentor students in apologetics, public policy, and business during the intensive 12-day Summit California conference designed to teach students how to analyze the various ideas that are currently competing for their hearts and minds.
