Who can attend?
The Summit is designed for 4th through 6th graders. Work with the existing organization of your church ministry to determine who should go. If you already group 4th & 5th together, or 5th & 6th together, or even 4th, 5th & 6th together, work within whichever structure you already have.
What if you don’t already have a group for this age?
What a great opportunity to start one! If you have a school associated with your church you can advertise in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classrooms. Bring your pastor, teacher from the school, parents, or young adults who have a passion for this age group and desire to see The Summit as a catalyst to being a group for this age.
What promotional materials are available and how can we get them?
Posters are available for download on the downloads page.
What if a member of our group has special medical needs?
If anyone in your group has special medical needs, we ask that you advise us in your registration materials, or contact one of the committee members prior to the gathering so we can make proper arrangements.
When should we arrive?
Check-in opens at 9:00 am. There will be ice-breaker activities for groups to connect with each other until worship begins at 9:30 am. Groups should make sure that they have arrived by 9:15 am to ensure that they are checked in and have received their shirts and other materials for the day.
Where should we go on campus when we arrive?
The Summit will primarily be held in the gymnasium. Group check in will be done outside of the gym as you come from the parking lot.
What food is provided?
Lunch and snacks will be provided. An email will be sent prior to the gathering to let you know what is being served for lunch. Coffee will be available in the morning for adults upon arrival. If you would like to bring snacks for your group you are more than welcome to do so.
What forms of payment are accepted?
