Partners Conference


In a world that’s actively seeking to destroy the truth, you need to have a biblical worldview more than ever before. A recent survey by George Barna indicates that only 2% of Gen Z has a biblical worldview. Only 6% of America has a biblical worldview.

Young people need help to understand the confusing culture and live with courage. Summit Ministries is made for this moment.
