“Thank you! I am so grateful to Summit for determining to continue through difficult times. Your message is needed now more than ever! After a year of secular college in a fearful community, there was a weary, heaviness in my son. He returned from 2 weeks at Summit renewed and equipped.” —Lynette Yoder, IN

“We knew Summit was going to be awesome for our daughter and it did not disappoint!  Summit was the perfect preparation for a lot of what she will be confronted with.” —Amy Gaudet, MO

“It was truly an amazing experience for my daughter. A lot of her doubts were cleared.” —Beatriz Menendez

“This conference was an answer to many years of prayer and an unexpected blessing in our summer. I’ve never heard of Summit, but the ad just kept popping up on my Facebook feed. I started asking around and heard great things so I impulsively signed up. The experience was far beyond my expectations.” —Carol Smith, GA

“Angelina made friends with quality people that I would be proud for her to have as life-long friends.” —Mary Ann DeTellis, FL

Students need to understand that their view of God determines their view of the world. 

Summit Ministries students learn to identify and study six popular worldviews during their two-week summer session. This worldview survey shows them how Secularism, Marxism, Postmodernism, New Spirituality, Islam, and Christianity answer the questions:

  1. What does it mean to exist?
  2. Where did we come from?
  3. Who are “we” anyway?
  4. What does it mean to be human?
  5. What is the good life?
  6. What happens when we die?
