We have always wanted to be a community that is known for how we love and serve others.
We don't want service to be an afterthought, or just the grateful result of success in other areas. We want it to be core to who we are.
In 2006, we came to the clear conclusion that God was calling us to partner significantly in stopping the AIDS pandemic in Africa. How we got there is a winding story, the summation of which is this: God gave us a very distinct direction in how Summit can be part of turning the tide in a pandemic that has no hope outside of Jesus Christ working through his church.

Meet Our Global Partners
We hope to form strong partnerships with existing ministries in Africa where we can unite together as individuals and organizations to put a stop to the worst humanitarian crisis in the history of the world. God has always been on the side of the poor and needy. As his hands and feet, it is our honor to take our place in history and join the work he has already started in Africa.
