SUMMIT 2013

In an age when most young adults aimlessly absorb the culture and struggle to find direction, Summit Ministries is turning the tide by equipping Summit-Logostudents to fearlessly stand for truth.

Working primarily with young adults ages 16-21 in a distinctive 12-day course of study, Summit’s world-class instructors and mentors prepare young adults to understand the times and know how to be leaders of their generation.

A Summit experience is especially vital for Christian young people headed to college and the onslaught of hostile worldviews they’ll face there.

An extensive study of 1,591 Summit graduates showed that they’re significantly more likely than their peers to love God, engage the culture Christianly, and defend their faith. They are nine times more likely to hold a Christian worldview than the average American. They read more books, watch less TV, vote, and are more generous with their time and money.

And in a culture where seven out of ten Christian young people drop out of church, 96.4% of Summit’s graduates stay committed to the body of Christ.

How is it possible for a 12-day Summit experience to have such a profound impact? Here’s Chuck Colson’s analysis from a recent Breakpoint commentary:

What’s Summit’s secret? They treat students like adults and raise expectations about what they need to learn. A lot of youth camps focus on fun and games, but at Summit they focus on student learning — especially preparing them for the many challenges that will assault their faith in college and from the culture.

And, you know what? The students love it. They want to be challenged, because for too long they’ve been the victim of low expectations.

Summit has set the gold standard for training students in Christian worldview.

As you can imagine, Summit sessions fill up fast, and last day to take advantage of the $200 Early Bird Discount is March 31. Don’t delay in find out how to sign up your loved ones for Summit at www.summit-student.org/info.
