On Easter Sunday, more than 1,100 people experienced worship at the Summit.
Within the next two years, it became clear that God had even bigger plans. By the fall of 2002, The Summit Church had college students attending for the first time. This was a huge answer to prayer as the church recognized that the nations were actually coming to them in the form of college students. They understood that if they could reach a student, they could also reach the city, state, or country that students would return to.
