Peyton Holliday (Tennessee)

Peyton Holliday (Tennessee) Peyton discusses how 1 Peter 3:15-16 spoke to her at Summit Tennessee and how it perfectly wraps up what Summit is about.

We should do our best and represent Christ in everything we say."

Anne Carman (Tennessee) "As a Summit alumna, I came to this session with high expectations. I came with questions, expecting to receive answers," says Anne. "I came with doubts, expecting to find resolve. I came with beliefs, expecting to be challenged. I came as a Christian, expecting to be strengthened... We’ve already had speakers who have posed questions that remain unanswered. Why? For multiple reasons, but one of the prominent reasons being to instill the pursuit of truth."
