SummitCamp to Welcome Acclaimed Christian Speakers

May 31, 2024

From June 24-28, Asbury University’s Howard Dayton School of Business (DSB) and Summit Ministries will present SummitCamp at Asbury University, featuring speakers Mike Sherrard, Alan Shlemon, Alisa Childers, and Dan Lewis.

SummitCamp equips our students to think carefully about today’s complex marketplace and challenges them to articulate biblical ideas in a loving manner,” said Asbury University President Dr. Kevin Brown. “And of course, we’re going to have some fun, all on the beautiful campus of Asbury University.”

Students who attend can expect to learn about a variety of topics focused around “faith in the marketplace” with engaging activities throughout the week, such as lunches and open forums with faculty members and small group discussions.

Incoming Asbury students who attend SummitCamp at Asbury University can apply to receive a $4K scholarship* to Asbury University. Learn more.

“Every generation has a battle for the minds of teenagers and leaders,” said Lewis, who serves as Executive Director of The River Foundation, the giving arm of First Southern Family of Companies, and as an adjunct professor in Asbury University’s DSB. “The further that we have gotten from a Christian worldview, the more the battle has increased. Summit has placed itself in the middle of this reality to help students live out their faith in practical ways.”

Previous students who attended SummitCamp at Asbury University shared these words about their experiences: “The lectures encouraged and ignited my faith, and the relationships that I built still exist today… This is a safe space that if you feel called to share something, there will be someone in the room who will say, ‘Same here.’”

According to their website, Summit Ministries desires to see generations of Christians mobilized to transform a broken world, and they exist to equip and support rising generations to embrace God’s truth and champion a biblical worldview.

Sherrard is the lead pastor of Crosspoint Community Church, the former director of Ratio Christi College Prep, and the author of Relational Apologetics. Shlemon is a public speaker and author for Stand to Reason, an organization that trains Christians to share their convictions in a persuasive, yet gracious and friendly way. Childers is the author of Another Gospel? (a book in which she describes the years-long journey she took as she wrestled with questions that struck at the core of the Christian faith and found the truth).

The DSB offers five majors (Accounting, Business Administration, Finance, Marketing, and Sport Management), five minors (Accounting, Business, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, and Sport Management), the Online Business Management program, the MBA, and the M.S. in Accounting.
