Students on Mission at Summit

On the last remaining days of 2022, students were trained and equipped to share their faith with their friends, their schools, and the world.

Summit, a four-day training experience for the strongest and sharpest student leaders across South Carolina, invited SCBaptist churches to send students to share Jesus boldly and expose them to the urgency of the Great Commission. This year, 73 mission minded students from 33 SCBaptist churches attended the event.

Speakers and trainers were hand selected from SCBaptist, the North American Mission Board, and the International Mission Board as field experts. Students were placed into small groups led by college students in the Palmetto Collective. Trainings, breakout sessions, and personal devotion times all led to the peak of the weekend: Mission Carowinds.

On the Mission Field

On New Year’s Eve, students were deployed at Carowinds with a twist; they weren’t there for the rides, but instead, for the lines. Using the training they received, students were there to share Christ with everyone they engaged.

Zane, a student who attends North Rock Hill Baptist, said that lately he’s been “challenged and convicted to share [his] faith” and that the “evangelism training [he] had at Summit helped [him] share [his] faith in the real world.”

Another student, Katie, who attends Church at Cane Bay, said that up until Summit, she had never shared the Gospel before. She said that since she shared her faith at Summit, it “made [her] really excited to tell everyone about Jesus.”

Sharing the Gospel

While at Carowinds, students had 109 full Gospel conversations, partially shared the Gospel 100 times, and attempted to begin another 194 conversations, for a grand total of 403 conversations initiated by students in one single day.

While we may never know the full Kingdom impact made that evening at Carowinds, we believe that students will continue to use the training and equipping they received at Summit to engage their friends, their schools, and the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
