Manny Ortiz (Colorado, Session 5)

Manny Ortiz (Colorado, Session 5) Manuel "Manny" Ortiz, gives an international perspective of his experience at Summit's Colorado Student Conferences. He says, "Me, being a born and raised Mexican, was an unlikely addition to a class composed of more than 95% of American students, but it has not been a handicap. Instead, it is a blessing since people here are extremely respectful and accepting of other cultures. I would definitely recommend this camp for young Christians not only from the U.S. but from whatever corner of the earth you come from. It will help you face all obstacles in your way no matter where your way may be."

Montgomery Miller (Colorado, Session 4) As Colorado Session 4 wraps up, Montgomery writes about his past 12 days at Summit and how the speaker, student engagement was vital in engaging community and conversation. He said, "One of the ideas drilled into us at Summit is that ideas have consequences. We live in a cultural war of ideas and Summit was founded on the idea of training the next generation of leaders to engage in this battle which permeates society."

Grace McClure (Colorado, Session 4)

Grace McClure  (Colorado, Session 4) As Grace listens to God through the Word and to the sounds of creation, she paints a beautiful picture of how Summit has taught her how Christians must be careful to talk to God as much as we talk about Him. She said, "We may not win every argument, and we may not have success as the world defines it; but we cannot suffer defeat in the eyes of heaven, for it is The Lord God, the Creator and Sustainer of Life, Light of the World and the Everlasting who loves us and fights for us.
