What People Like You Say about Student Conferences

"Summit was such an excellent opportunity for my teens to really solidify and personalize what they believe and why, and have a blast while doing it."
Erin Jaatinen
“Summit was a game-changing experience for me! While on a radio interview, I was asked, ‘If you had just one piece of advice for parents to help their kids hold onto their faith, what would that be?’ It’s easy, send your kids to Summit!”
Dr. Sean McDowell
Associate Professor of Apologetics at Biola University, Summit Faculty, and Alumnus
I always wanted to learn the secrets that helped great apologists stay calm against a topic that was hard to defend. At Summit, I learned how to exercise the composure of apologists in ways that even Jesus used.
Sarah Sawyers

We have found that after attending Summit:

A student's ability to explain their what and why behind their faith

A student's preparation for higher education

A student's understanding of a Christian worldview

A student's confidence to share their faith

A student's ability to defend their faith ​

Students who attend Summit have a passion to learn and take their faith to the next level. The apologetics and worldview training that takes place at Summit unpacks the “why” behind their faith.

What if more students had a stronger answer to the “WHY” behind their faith?

Every day, we are influenced by music, podcasts, books, and movies and then we wonder…
  • Why is it hard for Christians to discover biblical truth and know how to live it out?
  • Why is it hard to engage in conversations with friends about doubts and questions about faith?
Summit speakers and topics tackle biblical worldview and dive into hard questions about purpose, reproductive rights, gender identity, economics, and the secular culture.
Each summer Summit teaches students how their worldview reveals their faith and the depth of their Christianity by covering over 30 topics. We can’t expect students to stand strong in their faith and have intelligent conversations when they themselves don’t feel confident in their knowledge about the hard issues they are facing.

Students are victims in a battle of ideas. These ideas lead to actions and decisions and determine a student’s understanding of life’s meaning. Ideas guide them to live and think about the world in a specific way.

We have compiled a resource for youth leaders, based on The Secret Battle of Ideas about God by Summit’s President, Dr. Jeff Myers. This guide will help youth leaders combat questions students ask that, if they aren’t answered with biblical truth, will lead to false ideas about who they are in Christ.
