Resources from Summit

Victoria Terry

by Victoria Terry, Florida Gratitude is the only word I have to define my experience at Summit. It is surreal to know that I learned how to help people where they are, and that God came and met me where I was.  My journey to Summit was nothing short of a miracle and I’m so excited to share it with you. I spent all four of my High School years in Kenya, Africa with my… Read More →Victoria Terry

Liz Koh

By: Liz Koh, Singapore My experience at Summit reminds me of the uphill climb from downtown Manitou Springs to the Summit hotel. I had to trust God to get me to the top. To be honest, traveling 9,000 miles away from my country to the other half of the earth without any friends scared me. From the food to the slang, many things were foreign and weird to me. I didn’t know that peanut butter… Read More →Liz Koh

Abby Kilman

by: Abby Kilman, Missouri Session One of Summit 2019 was no doubt a whirlwind of crazy moments. Snow in May. Sinus infections and pink eye were running rampant. Sitting on top of the bus, staring at one of God’s most beautiful creations, the stars, and galaxies above us. Running out of ink of my favorite pen halfway through one of the fastest lectures. 70 pages of notes, around 55 lectures. So many statistics, and yet… Read More →Abby Kilman

The Legacy of Summit in the World of Arts and Entertainment

It was a summer day in 1994 and Matt and his girlfriend Amy sat on the front porch of the Grandview Hotel, preparing for their Student Conference to begin. At that moment, Matt had no way of knowing that Summit would change his life and he, in turn, would change the lives of tens of millions in the years to come. This year, 25 later, Matt serves as CEO of Sight and Sound Theater. Matt… Read More →The Legacy of Summit in the World of Arts and Entertainment

How Summit Impacts Your Future

By: Scott Northway, V.P. of Programs How would you answer questions like, “So, what are you doing this summer? Better yet, how are you getting ready for what’s after high school? How do you know that you’ll be ready? How will you pay for college?” These direct questions can be answered with enthusiasm, uncertainty, or an eye-roll. Students, we get it—with rising costs of tuition at +275% since 1985, increasing college debt with an average… Read More →How Summit Impacts Your Future

Here at Summit, we’re blessed to come alongside these students for two weeks and then see… Read More →BreakPoint: Two Weeks that Lasts a Lifetime

Love Goes Further: My Experience Staffing at Summit 

Student Conference Isabelle Ingalls 2016 Colorado Session 2

By Isabelle Ingalls  The day I flew into Colorado for staff training, it was storming. Threatening clouds covered the airport, and the winds forced us to circle the flight path again and again. Twice, three times, four, five; I began to worry as we repeatedly had to turn away from Pikes Peak. When the pilot announced that we had only enough fuel for one more circle before being forced to return to Denver, I had an… Read More →Love Goes Further: My Experience Staffing at Summit 

Calvin’s Graduation Speech (Session 1)

As Christ’s followers, we stand on a rock. The world has told me the rock we stand on is not a strong rock. Many people told me I did not have an answer to their questions because I was brainwashed. Through Summit, I have learned that the Christian worldview offers consistent answers that apply to the most difficult environments and offers practical ways to pursue answers to the hardest questions. Though God hasn’t given us… Read More →Calvin’s Graduation Speech (Session 1)

Students learn true identity at Summit Conference

In today’s culture students are looking for meaning but also community. Many fear that standing for the truth of a biblical worldview will leave them isolated and alone. That’s where Summit came to the rescue of Rayann, a student attending Summit’s first session of the summer. Rayann was recently adopted by a Christian family and surrendered her life to Jesus. Hoping to spend time “alone with Jesus” this summer, she discovered Summit through an internet… Read More →Students learn true identity at Summit Conference

Rebecca James

Spring Branch, TX | 18 years old My phone broke on the very first morning. I spilled water on my bed. I caught a cold. I had to take two very cold showers. And I had the best time of my life. These unforgettable past two weeks at Summit Ministries have been a game changer in my life and walk with God, and despite any mishaps, I wouldn’t give them up for the world.
