Upcoming Trips


Thank you for considering a short-term mission trip with the Summit. This is more than an overseas trip. We are boldly asking God to give us the promise he made to Jesus in Psalm 2:8: “Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance” (NIV). You are part of the answer to that prayer.

City Life Local 2021

RDU 5/18/2021 to 7/15/2021 $450.00

City Life (CL) is about equipping college students to connect their faith to their work in the marketplace. Through CL, we hope to demonstrate how your work matters to God and how you can leverage your passions and skills in your vocation for the mission of God. CL is a hands-on, theological, and marketplace practicum to teach students how to make disciples that make disciples in the marketplace and be excellent in their future careers. In CL Local, students work a summer-long internship within their field of study. Once a week, they meet in D-groups to discuss what they are reading and how it applies to their jobs. Throughout the summer, students attend weekend forums where they will learn about faith and work integration from those who work within the marketplace. If you want to understand the significance of your future career and how you can leverage it for the gospel, then CL is for you! City Life is open to college students only.

Students travel to New York City for one week to engage Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, and Buddhists with the gospel. The middle of the summer includes several weeks in Wake Forest, North Carolina, receiving practical theological and ministry training by pastors at the Summit. During this time, students will learn to effectively share the gospel and give their lives away in RDU in response to the gospel. During the last two weeks of the summer, students will travel abroad to serve alongside Summit church planters. This is an excellent opportunity to explore the mission of God, develop a heart for the nations, and better understand what it means to leverage your life for the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We welcome new ideas for practical/transferrable skills trainings, and are excited for you to join us in this work. Things to consider: Work in the refugee camps can be physically/emotionally/spiritually strenuous. Long, hot days may be spent in the camps, with rough dirt roads taken to and from work locations. Be prepared for no AC and inconsistent water/electricity availability. Because of the nature of working with vulnerable peoples, emotional maturity ought to be considered for those joining the trip.
