Student Ministries

Programs for Youth from 6th Grade to 12th Grade

About Us

At Summit Church, we make youth a priority!  We realize that teenagers face pressures and challenges that are unique to their stage in life.  This is a formative time when character is built and we are passionate about seeing students make Jesus Christ their first priority and guiding each student to their next step of faith, no matter where they are on the journey. 


The Trailhead is both the name of our student ministry and the building where youth group events take place.  The Trailhead is located on the south end of our property, on the other side of the parking lot from main campus.  Trailhead Youth happens every Sunday night during the school:


6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Middle and High School Students


You'll experience a fun atmosphere where we provide dinner, play great games togetehr, experience worship, spend time in small groups, and be challenged by an egaging message.  The trailhead is a great place to make friends and give you the Biblical tools to navigate life as a Christian in high school or middle school.  We hope you can make it!
