AnnaClaire shares about her Summit experience in the beginning and in the very end of her time at Summit Colorado.
Cedar Rapids, Iowa | 22 years old
It was in 2012 that I stepped out of a van with six other high school youth group students and stood in front of Bryan College, totally exhausted from the fourteen hour drive down from Iowa to Tennessee. I had no idea what to expect from Summit Ministries, all I knew was that I was going to be attending a Christian apologetics conference for the next two weeks.
Fast forward four years and now I have had the privilege to spend the majority of my summer staffing at Summit! Throughout my time in college, Summit Ministries’ mission, and the relationships that I built in 2012 have been a constant reminder of God’s faithfulness and His perfect timing. My small group leader spoke truth and walked with me through many of the life questions I had as a student. I believe she understood that it is truly God that changes things.
Summit has taught me to keep asking hard questions and to actively pursue a deeper relationship with Christ. He calls us to imitate Him and to become obedient to His will. As I continue staffing at Summit and leading a small group, I have seen how God calls the unqualified. Without Him, I have no gifts, no power, and no wisdom to boast about. It is His will and His power in which we are able to boast!
