Steve Partlow


Steve Partlow joined the team at Summit, as a Special Assistant to the President, in February of 2018.  He had retired from a successful career in donor development with several major Christian ministries here in the U.S. and in Europe.

Steve grew up in Dallas, Texas and started his adventurous career as a volunteer area director with Young Life, leading high school students into a relationship with their Savior.  After graduating from college at the University of Texas Arlington, he attended Dallas and Fuller Theological seminaries.  He has been serving young people and adults for the past 47 years through Young Life, Focus on the Family and Every Home for Christ.  With Summit, he is still enjoying and being challenged in developing and deepening relationships with donors and prospective ministry partners.

High school is where he met his wife, Candy, and they have been married for 46 years.  They have been blessed with three children and five grandchildren that all live in Colorado Springs.  Steve and Candy also have loved their role as Sponsor Parents to Cadets at the Air Force Academy for the past 22 years.
