Summit Basecamp


The Summit Basecamp series equips youth leaders, pastors, and teachers with a deeper understanding of apologetics and biblical worldview, so you can effectively walk alongside your 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.

Navigating A Technological and Pornified Culture

Are you in competition with technology to connect with your students?

Our next Summit Basecamp in the series will take place on May 9, 2019 at 1-4 P.M. MDT on the topic of technology and pornography.

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. We have the opportunity as their mentors and teachers to show them a better way to view ourselves and humanity and to live fully as Christ intended. Learn how to engage your students in the midst of a technological pornified-dominated culture.

Summit Basecamp will help you feel more equipped, educated, and informed to continue caring for your students.

Watch Past Basecamps

Summit’s mission is to cultivate rising generations to resolutely champion a biblical worldview. One of the ways we do this is by offering training and resources to you as you walk alongside students. Below you’ll find recordings from past Summit Basecamp events on varies relevant topics.

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.
