Walking through the Colorado Springs airport, my breath was coming faster and faster, realizing I was about to be at Summit Colorado — of course, some of that could have had to do with the change in elevation. I bent down, riding the escalator to baggage pick-up and spotted the staff with their Summit sign.
“Okay! I’m really here!” I was quickly drawn into games while waiting for the bus, and when we arrived at the Summit Hotel, the energy of the staff members was quite infectious. I was sucked into the wonderful world of Summit.

Summit Ministries is far more than a mere Christian ministry. It is a unique family of Christians coming together to learn about God in a community. I was a student at Summit Colorado, Session 6 in 2015. I fell in love with the unique environment and immediately wanted to be a staffer, helping to make the life changing experience of a Summit conference happen for other young people. I applied and waited patiently (well, waited while biting my nails.) Lo and behold, I was offered a position as a staffer for the first half of the summer 2016 conferences!

I came to Summit somewhat overwhelmed because of opportunities on the horizon that I just do not know which path to take. I don’t think God said directly to go one way or another. The biggest takeaway for me is something that John Stonestreet keeps saying, “You want a good mentor? Talk to old people.” So many people, myself included, think that we can do things by ourselves.

I came back to Summit again this year because there is still a lot to learn. I'm hungry to know what is true and how to share it with others. Also, the community at Summit is very uplifting. The speakers are willing to pour their knowledge into the students and are eager to answer their questions. The community inspires me to be more like Jesus and shows me what love in action looks like.

I came to Summit without knowing a single soul. But by the end of week one, I've gotten to know people better, listen to incredible lectures and testimonies, and developed a growing desire to learn apologetics and establish a biblical worldview. The Lord, through Summit, has brought me to meet different people from all walks of life. To listen, live, and learn from them.
