This idea is that the Bible forms a coherent and whole outline of God's ultimate plan for creation, fall, redemption, and restoration. It simply says that God created all things good and mankind with free will, that sin caused corruption within good things, that through Jesus' atoning sacrifice redemption can seep into society today, and that one day there will be final and complete restoration.

If I were to summarize my experience as a Summit student, I could easily describe it with one phrase, "culture shock"-and, no, that's not because my fellow public schoolers and I were outnumbered by homeschoolers for the first time in our lives.

Even better than the classes, has been the fellowship. I came hoping to meet other young Christians and create constructive relationships. It's great to be around so many others who have a passion for Christ. Connecting with other students has been encouraging for my faith.

The slogan of the two weeks was to "put a stone in the shoe." Help others to think. You don't have to prove Christianity all the time, and usually, that's not at the core of the conversation. Needless to say, I overwhelmed my brain cells and do not regret it! Listening to the speakers and reading their books helped me to grow in my own faith with confidence and with more of a desire to reach people as a means to help them and not as a "good thing" to check off my Christian to-do list.

There are so many things to be said about staffing at Summit, but I think the two main reasons that keep calling me back are: having the opportunity to pour God's love into the students and being poured into by my fellow staffers. When I was a student, I looked up to my small group leader.
