Summit Students exists to help students take their next right step toward God.
We gear everything toward reaching our middle and high school students where they are, providing a safe environment for discussion and worship, and helping students take their next right step toward Christ. This ministry also strives to provide an atmosphere in which students feel comfortable inviting friends and neighbors to.
Surge | Middle School
At Surge, we encourage our 6th-8th grade students to own their faith as they begin to mature and face new social challenges, while learning to live and function in healthy community with peers and adults.
Sundays at 4 p.m. at Herndon, Waterford, and Lake Mary campuses.
The Edge | High School
The Edge is geared toward high school students and provides a forum for students to connect with one another, with adult leaders, and with God as they navigate and discuss issues relevant to their lives.
Sundays at 6:30 p.m. at Herndon, Waterford, and Lake Mary campuses.
Student Ministry Stories
The Vault. January 20th, 2017. A night where around 150 middle schoolers invited their friends to climb onto buses and go around Orlando for a night of shenanigans and craziness.
Adults of Summit, lend me your ears. Something pretty wild is happening, and, if we’re not careful, there’s a group of teenagers that may just take the reins from us when we’re not looking and start running our church.
“Sometimes God asks us to break things, to put things down…in order to create space for him to create something new, something more beautiful…” As I sat and listened to my husband and Herndon Campus Pastor Garry Abbott speak these words to the students during the first large group session of Edge Goes to the Beach this weekend, I couldn’t help but smile.
This fun-filled weekend is perfect for families who have kids in elementary, middle, or high school!
Weekend of Valor is our annual retreat for middle school students that helps them consider what it looks like to be a man or woman of God. Leaving the distractions of everyday life, students will head into the woods for a weekend of roughing it, enjoying the beauty of God’s creation, and leaning into truth.
Is baptism a right next step in your relationship with God? Step into the water and declare outwardly what God has done in your heart.
High school students are invited to experience Summit's ongoing partnership with Children Of The Nations first hand in the Dominican Republic this summer.
