For 55 years, Summit Ministries has been teaching young adults how to champion a biblical worldview and to strengthen their faith in this post-christian culture. At Summit Colorado, over 20 Christian thought leaders — such as Jeff Myers, Sean McDowell, John Stonestreet, Brett Kunkle, Abdu Murray, and more — will mentor students in apologetics, worldviews, and difference-making, an intensive and fun conference designed to teach students how to analyze the various ideas that compete for their hearts and minds.

Summit Colorado offers students 12 days of life-changing teaching from top Christian leaders and thinkers under the shadow of the magnificent Rocky Mountains. Summit’s speakers and staff will help students strengthen their faith and prepare them to live lives that make a difference.

While at Summit, students will:

  • Learn how to defend their faith, both in college and beyond
  • Grow alongside 180 young men and women eager to think and live biblically
  • Be prepared to make an impact for Christ in every part of their world

  • Realize the implications the gospel has for every aspect of their lives
