Who We Are

OUR MISSION

to cooperate with God in developing multiplying communities of fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

We believe that we accomplish this mission with the strategy of Experiencing the Presence of Christ, Equipping people for Life & Ministry, and Engaging a World in Need.

Over the years we have seen God build us into One Family of Multiple Churches. We believe that as our church family continues to grow here in Central Arkansas, we will see more Summit Churches planted. We also believe that more pastors will go plant Summit Churches in other parts of our state as a part of our greater extended family and by God's grace, that we will continue to have spiritual influence and kindred relationships with other churches and pastors who we generously share with what God has given us.

Our Vision

To spiritually influence every county in Arkansas, plant 100 churches in North America, and impact 100 countries of the world through prayer, planting, and partnering by the year 2038.

Our STructure

We are one family of multiple churches. 

ELDERS

Our churches are Elder-led. Elders provide general oversight of the churches. They teach, protect, pray for, equip, provide counsel, model godliness, and care for the discipleship of the church. They exercise church discipline when needed. They oversee finances, budgeting, and the church staff. When needed they oversee the selection of new Elders. 

Church staff

Staff work inside their area of ministry at their local church under the authority of their Lead Pastor and Elders. While leading in their church, most staff also work within a collective to share best practices with those leading in the same ministry at other Summit Churches.

collectives

Collectives unite our churches by helping them function with the best ministry practices. Collectives are unified around the sharing of best practices that make us better together and are given areas of liberty to empower leaders to make greater impact in their local context.

The Central Team is overseen by the Directional Pastor and provides Communications, Design, Technology, Production, Finance, Human Resources, Facilities, Global Engage, and National Engage for each church.
