Student Conferences

Connect with others who are asking questions about life, faith, and what matters.

We understand the unique challenges around the desire for deep relationships and intentional conversations about life. At Summit Ministries, over 475,000 students and adults have discovered the value of truth and relationship. More than knowing what they believe, they connect their faith with a Christian worldview, live it out, and lead others to do the same.

Summit’s Student Conference is a 12-day experience where students discover how to approach questions about faith and doubts in an ever-changing culture. We help them to resolutely champion a Christian worldview. Summit Ministries hosts ten Student Conferences in three locations.

Hard conversations about faith are inevitable…

Preparation for these hard conversations is optional. As students enter life beyond high school, Summit prepares them to engage in hard conversations. Millennial Christians are leaving the church in droves as they enter the workforce and Summit’s faculty is equipped to train and challenge them!

As students find their own identity, the Summit Student Conference experience complements the foundation of faith that has been laid by parents and youth leaders. Summit equips students to form deep relationships where truth is spoken in love and Christian convictions.

Don’t Just Take it From Us!

I really didn’t think it was possible to change, and I didn’t care. My dad sent me to Summit and everything changed.” —Ryan Dobson, Summit Alumnus, and founder of Rebel Parenting

“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 Resident Scholar, and Summit Alumnus
