Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Arrive

Online registration has closed. What should I do?

When you arrive next week, we encourage you to visit Summit Headquarters to register in person. It will still be free!

After You Return Home

Where can I find Summit recordings?

Visit our collection of audio recordings archived within the Digital Commons at ACU. The audio files there extend all the way back to 1957, representing the full extant collection of audio recordings made of the main theme speeches, individual classes, and special events! You may access any of these recordings free of charge. See the Digital Commons page for information about how to listen.

Additionally, a number of Summit videos are available on YouTube in the Siburt Institute’s and Abilene Christian University’s collections.
