Summit Basecamp


Summit Basecamp is a free content series Summit hosts, to equip adults with a deeper understanding of apologetics and biblical worldview to effectively walk alongside students in a post-Christian culture. Each three-hour Basecamp event will explore a different relevant topic with speakers who are experts in that area.

How can we help students make moral decisions in a morally complicated world?

Never before have your students been presented with so many options and different perspectives on how to make ethical decisions. The culture screams at us to “live our own truth” and tells us to “be a good person” while new technologies and a changing political landscape are framing our minds to focus on an idea of good that isn’t consistent with a Christian worldview. What do we need to be able to make God-honoring moral choices in an immoral world?

Join us in Georgia on February 8th as Dr. Jeff Myers and Mike Sherrard tackle the topic of morality, transhumanism, and the common good as it relates to decision making and the upcoming 2020 election.

What is your role in promoting life?

January of this year marked the 45th year since the Roe V. Wade decision in the United States. As our country seeks answers to fundamental questions about the value of human life, take time to reflect on the answers your students are adopting as their own. Do you feel equipped to help your students think critically about the answers they are believing?

Think critically about the ethics of abortion and questions regarding beginning and end of life issues and technologies that directly impact our communities. When we think critically about hard issues we can connect with students to help move them beyond what they feel is right and on to pursue biblical truth. 

Navigating a Technological and Pornified Culture

Many teens suffer from isolation, depression, loneliness, and anxiety. This event will focus on how pornography and the increasing use of technology plays a role in these effects. When students look for community and acceptance through technology or intimacy through pornography they slowly lose their ability to live fully as God intended and to connect with others in meaningful ways.

Dr. Kathy Koch, Jonathan McKee, and Haley Halverson will lead you through sessions to explore lies that students are believing about community and self-esteem found online and practical ways we can work to challenge students for more face to face engagement.

Truth & Relationship in a Sexually Confused Culture

Same-sex marriage and homosexuality are becoming more prominent, accepted, and normalized within our culture. How has this affected the way your students view sexuality? 

Worldview experts John Stonestreet, Dr. Christopher Yuan, and Caleb Kaltenbach will equip you with information and practical strategies for helping students to navigate within a sexually broken culture.

Practical Tools for Equipping Gen Z

Every generation has its ups and downs, but Gen Z is unique—there has never been a generation in America so thoroughly captured by the culture, so thoroughly enmeshed with social media, and so secular in its thinking about the world. How do we develop relationships of grace that do not ignore the truth?

Generation Z experts, Dr. Jeff Myers, Jason Jimenez, and Mike Sherrard will lead you through sessions on relationships, role models, identity, and biblical authority.
