The primary reason Summit International School of Ministry provides a nurturing atmosphere, where students can understand how they fit into the grand scheme of things and fit into God’s plans, is because they feel that is their duty when it comes to building a spiritual army for Christ. The main thing Summit wants to teach its students is to seek the face of God and feel His presence in their lives. The leader of Summit International School of Ministry is Teresa Conlon, who has served as president of the school since the fall of 2010.
At the same time, Pastor Conlon is an associate pastor at Times Square Church in New York City, although she has spoken at leadership conferences and women’s events for well over a decade before that, and she had the privilege of being personally mentored by the founding pastor of Times Square Church and the founder of Summit, Rev. David Wilkerson, who founded Summit in 1994. Rev. Wilkerson, who is also author of The Cross and the Switchblade, founded the beautiful 100-acre campus of Summit International School of Ministry on the definition of ministry saying that ministry is living for the benefit of others. That is why Summit International School of Ministry exists in Grantville, Pennsylvania, at the gorgeous foothills of the Blue Mountains. They want everyone who attends to live a more God-centered life and to treat people better.
The primary objective of the academic program of Summit International School of Ministry is to foster growth, to challenge any preconceptions about God and to encourage intense study of biblical truths. Summit wants to teach and shape the minds of all of their students to see everything through the lens of a Christian worldview. And based on their record and the Summit International School of Ministry reviews, they are doing just that. Their former students almost uniformly report their lives to be more God-centered and more Christlike after attending.
