Upcoming Trips

"EVERY HEART WITH CHRIST IS A MISSIONARY, EVERY HEART WITHOUT CHRIST IS A MISSION FIELD."

Thank you for considering a short-term mission trip with the Summit. This is more than an overseas trip. We are boldly asking God to give us the promise he made to Jesus in Psalm 2:8: “Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance” (NIV). You are part of the answer to that prayer.

This will be a time for intercessional prayer & worker encouragement; a time for us to grow in discipleship, listen to God and each other. The culture of these people is so hospitable and inviting.
