Denver, Colorado… The Rocky Mountain Youth Department is announcing the Greater Summit, formerly known as Teen Prayer Summit, to convene on January 17-20, 2020 at Glacier View Ranch.

“We are changing our name to connect more deeply with our Vision for the Youth Department to ‘Live Greater’,” said Kiefer Dooley, RMC youth director.

“We are in no means diminishing the importance of prayer, and will be incorporating it in more than ever in our future events,” he added.

Each year, the youth team will be producing two Greater Summits, one for Middle School and one for High School. “In the past, we have combined both middle and high school together for one event. Due to the increased attendance and to better serve and connect with each age group, we will begin hosting two summits starting in 2020. Both summits will focus on our theme for 2020, FULLY ALIVE,” Jessyka Dooley, associate youth director.

The Youth Department provided the following information about the Glacier View gathering:

Encounter: Our team will be bringing in speakers and worship leaders who are passionate about connecting with the age group they will be serving. This time is for our students to hear the word, worship through song, and get to know one another a little better.

Engage: For both Middle and High School age groups, our team creates curriculum for this discussion time to break down the messages the students heard and discover how the Bible is practically applicable to them.

Enjoy: Nestled in the Rocky Mountains, Glacier View Ranch has more to offer than just a pretty view. Depending on the time of year, we will be offering various activities including: sledding, snowshoeing, hiking, mountain biking, swimming in the pool, crafts, and many more! This year, we will be adding something new, the Kulikup Cafe with a full hot chocolate bar!

The Greater Summit is designed to emphasize the development of your personal identity and purpose — rooted and grounded in Jesus, with a basis in prayer and a message that moves in the spirit of confidence. Over the course of the weekend, we will pray together, explore the scripture together, recharge together, and have fun together. Our hope is that your experience at The Greater Summit will inspire confidence, encourage learning, and establish or re-establish your connection with Jesus Christ. Experiencing Jesus together and at Home with Him, you will find the freedom and courage to live life to the fullest!
