I love watching people work together with unity and purpose!

As a sports fan, it’s fun to watch teams play “over their heads” and succeed because of great teamwork. It’s true in many different ways in life, including the church.

I got to see that in action a week ago when 60 people traveled from Summit to build two homes in Mexico.  I took my two younger kids along with me, and it was a joy to see lives changed and houses built over a 4-day weekend.


About a month before the trip, the mission organization asked us to step up and build one of the homes twice the size. Our team leaders embraced the challenge!

Summit’s leaders did a fantastic job. They modeled what it took to successfully build and partner with the local community. They helped everyone (adults and youth) be a part of the experience, and everyone pulled together to make it a successful weekend.

Wet Cement Session

God is giving us incredible opportunities to reach more people for Jesus in the West Valley and around the world.

That is why I want to invite those who call Summit their church home to be a part of a special vision gathering this Sunday afternoon.

It’s called a “Wet Cement Session” because Summit’s Vision Team will share our work to refresh the language we use to share our church’s mission and values.

We have “poured some concrete” in that process, but this is a chance for you to participate and provide some input before it sets!


I’m excited about the work this Vision Team has done! It’s been a prayerful process and they’ve been a dedicated, creative and Spirit-led team.

Here are the details if you’d like to be a part of this dynamic and collaborative process to sharpen our vision:

The Bible reminds us: “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1)

My prayer is that this vision work will make it easier for people to “catch” what God is doing through our church-and make it easier for us to share the vision with others.

It’s exciting to see the opportunities the Lord is laying before our church!  I’m glad that you are a part of the journey and appreciate your prayers for Summit’s ministry today and in the years to come.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Nate
