January Basecamp

Barna Group sheds new light on striking social and demographic trends: Teenagers in Gen Z are at least twice as likely as American adults to identify as LGBT or as an atheist.

These students, born between 1999-2015, believe that identity comes from belief, sexual orientation, or what they do, rather than their Creator. Summit has connected with teenagers for over 55 years to answer these kinds of hard questions.

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?

  • What questions do your students have?
  • How do you respond?
  • Do you feel equipped to navigate these questions?

Join us on January 31st for our next Summit Basecamp. This free event will welcome worldview experts John Stonestreet, Dr. Christopher Yuan, Caleb Kaltenbach, and others. These speakers will equip you with information and practical strategies for helping students to navigate within a sexually broken culture.

Summit Basecamp will give you the confidence to lead your students to recognize the ideas that are influencing how they think about their identity, purpose, and beliefs. This event will help youth leaders begin to help their students answer questions about their identity in Christ.


If you are a parent, youth leader, pastor, coach, or teacher who is searching for answers about how to come alongside this generation, then this simulcast is for you. Students experience life at an incredible pace. The Summit Basecamp audience plays a part in training students on a regular basis. If you walk alongside students guiding them to think for themselves as they interact with an ever-changing culture, this event is for you.
