Summit’s Student Conferences are designed to help students (ages 16-25) strengthen their faith, understand their world, and to be prepared to make a difference with their lives.

While at Summit, students will be equipped to:

  • START growing in wisdom, fortitude, and initiative
  • TRANSFORM by knocking down personal barriers
  • ADVANCE God’s kingdom through your gifts and talents
  • NETWORK to collaborate toward Christian worldview solutions
  • DISCIPLE others by passing the baton

We understand the unique challenges around the desire for deep relationships and intentional conversations about faith.

At Summit, 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.

2018 marks the first year of expansion into another state. At Summit Pennsylvania on the campus of Lancaster Bible College (LBC), over 15 Christian thought leaders — such as Jeff Myers, Sean McDowell, John Stonestreet, Brett Kunkle, Abdu Murray, and more — will mentor students in apologetics, worldviews, and difference-making, an intensive and fun conference designed to teach students how to analyze the various ideas that compete for their hearts and minds.

“After 25 years, Summit Ministries’ impact on my life is still fresh in my mind.  I can recall so many of the experiences and even the names of some of the instructors.  Today I am overjoyed to learn that Summit Ministries is coming all the way from Colorado to partner with LBC!  This ministry is passionate about transformation and helping us love God with all of our minds.  My view of ministry today was and remains shaped by my Summit experience.”  —Rob Blanks, LBC-PDN Partnership Liaison;  Assistant Professor
