In celebration of a half-century of life-changing, Christian worldview education, Summit Ministries will hold a dinner Celebration on October 20 in Colorado.
Under the leadership of new president Dr. Jeff Myers, Summit Ministries has provided a significant impact on the youth that it trains with its summer conferences and adult training programs. In a recent study, Summit’s Turning the Tide: Evidence of Impact Study, it was found that graduates of Summit Ministries affirm a Biblical worldview at four times the rate of the average born-again Christian. Graduates also experience up to a 429 percent growth in spiritual disciplines and positive habits of cultural engagement.
Summit grads not only understand their own Biblical worldview better after their experience at Summit training courses, they alsobetter understand many other major worldviews and topics covered during the course of the training. And when Summitstudents graduate from Summit’s programs, they show demonstrable increases in political activity.

“Do not forget or neglect to do kindness and good, to be generous and distribute and contribute to the needy … for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.” (Heb. 13:16, AMP)
Being radically generous and helping others is easier than you may think. I have asked people to share practical ways we can show love, have read books, searched the Internet, and been aggressive on my own journey to find creative ways to help others. Below are some helpful ideas to remember in your daily life and as you think of ways your church can show love in action.
Some people you meet change your life forever.
When I met Abeba, a beautiful, sweet and special little girl in one of our Joyce Meyer Ministries feeding programs in Ethiopia, she was severely malnourished. Her little body was swollen, already in the shut-down mode of starvation. Many in her village were starving, but she was one of the worst cases.
The thing that blew me away about Abeba was her joy. Despite how much pain she was in from malnutrition and her living conditions, Abeba’s smile always glowed. I had the opportunity to give food to Abeba’s mother for Abeba and her nine brothers and sisters. They were visibly happy and thankful just to have something to eat. Often, the food our ministry provides in this region is the difference between life and death for many of these children and families. Abeba now had a new shot at life.
The list of ways to bless others is endless. Be open to God and ask Him to show you how you and your church can help people. Your radical acts of generosity may be just the key to unlock the door of someone’s heart to hear and receive the gospel.
