They ensure the mission, vision, and doctrine of Summit are upheld and support the pastoral staff as they pursue personal holiness.

This team advises the Strategy Team in areas of nance, facilities, human resources, and IT functions of the church. They also make recommendations directly to the Governing Board on cash management, budget, and asset controls and provide an independent review of all accounting records.
This team reviews the local and global ministry goals for the church. They also help decide where Summit Church gives 15 percent of its budget, which is allocated to meet needs outside of the church.
This team works hard to meet people where they are and help them prayerfully take their next right step at each of our Summit campuses.
