As soon as I heard about Summit in the spring of 2015, I knew it was something I had to do. Fast forward to the spring of 2016 and I got accepted to receive the scholarship. What followed was two weeks of Coloradan beauty, excellent fellowship, and unparalleled teaching.

If you are deliberating about whether or not you should come to Summit Ministries, ask yourself the following: Are you about to enter college and have questions that you want answered? Do you want to build bonds with fellow Christians? Would you like to be able to freely speak without the worry of losing friends or loved ones? If you said "yes" to any of these, I recommend you apply.

I have not only been placed into the shoes of David (and what big shoes they are to fill), but I have been reminded also of the persistent widow in Luke 18, as the importance of constant prayer becomes clearer each day.

Can you remember the last time you were inspired to change the world? Has someone ever told you that God created a marvelous creation when He made you?
