Summit teachers actually encouraged us to come to our own conclusions instead of taking their word on it. At the end of the day, they wanted us to go through the Bible to find for ourselves what it says about Marxism, homosexuality, and feminism; then they challenged us to go to history and science books to test for truth.

It is a rare occasion to witness within our society an act of responsibility, selflessness, or sacrifice. Yet I have seen dozens of these "rare moments" within any given minute here at Summit. I observed people love God through every action of everyday; and yes, the proverbial idea of becoming like those you hang around thankfully rings true. If you want to experience God's love reflected off humans that are trying their best, Summit wants you too.

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've lived under the "buckle of the bible belt" for my entire life, but I never realized how much I was letting different worldviews influence my life, primarily through books and movies. John Stonestreet addressed this in his presentation "Amusing Ourselves to Death."
