Information on The Summit Youth Academy:
The Summit exists to prepare high school participants, known as Summit Disciples, for a lifetime of faithful Christian discipleship through connecting, learning, and discerning God’s call. Supported by the Institute for Discipleship, the program launched with funding from the Lilly Endowment with the first Summit in 2017. The Summit Youth Academy is a week for rising high school juniors and seniors to connect with God, Christian leaders and peers, learn Wesleyan theology from seminary and college professors, and discern God’s calling in one’s life.
