1000 Churches in a Generation

Summit Church, we want to do whatever it takes to reach all people with the gospel and we want to send every member. Whether here locally, or in another city in North America or around the globe, we want every single member to be living on mission wherever God has called them. 

We also have a goal to plant 1000 churches in a generation. 

We have two families planting this year:

  • Billy and Sarah Judge are planting a collegiate-focused church in Pittsburgh, PA.
  • Derrick and Rachel Delain are planting a church in Nashville, TN.

Billy has been serving as the college pastor of Shandon Baptist Church in Columbia, SC.

Derrick is the Campus Pastor of our Blue Ridge Campus.

Prayer Points

  • Pray for their families as they get ready for a big transition of moving and starting a new church. 
  • We want to send every member and we believe God is calling some of you to be “sent” to Nashville or Pittsburgh. Pray and ask God if this is a possible next step for you and your family.
