History of Summit

Since its modest beginnings in the 1906-07 academic year, Summit has been devoted to providing programs and experiences fostering spiritual formation and renewal among students, faculty, staff and congregational leaders. The ways in which we carry out this divine mission have evolved through the years. Here we offer a snapshot of the numerous forms this gathering has taken throughout its rich history—from the inaugural Special Lecture Series in January 1907 to the 113th ACU Summit in September 2019.
