The Summit has changed my life in so many ways. Apart from it being the best week of my life, I got to grow in understanding of who God is and what He is doing in my life. Not only did I get to do that, but I got to do it with a community of brothers and sisters in Christ who also got to grow and learn. I got to experience the extraordinary love and grace of God while at the Summit. It was so overwhelming that when I left to go back home, I couldn’t help but cry in an act of thanks toward what God is doing in my life and in others lives. Overall, without the Summit, my life wouldn’t be where it is right now, and I say that with confidence. It was fun, full of love, and transformed my life. If I could go back in time and relive a week in my life, I would relive my Summit experience.

Hear from Parents

We believe that faith is an important topic for the whole family. Here are a few testimonial videos where you'll hear what parents of past Disciples have to say about the experience. We want you to know what God can speak into the youth of our churches.

11 …Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper...
Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

1 Kings 19:11-13
