As a Summit Guide, you'll help high schoolers explore God's call while you grow in your faith and experience God with 9 fellow Guides. You’ll also gain leadership experience and enjoy a week of incredible worship while you work alongside incredible scholars, pastors, and laity. Oh, and how's a $500 stipend upon completion of your week's responsibilities sound?
