Brier Creek Campus

The first church in Acts devoted themselves to one another in the gospel and in fellowship. They ate together, prayed together, studied the Word together, and gave generously to meet the needs of one another. As a result, many people in the surrounding community came to faith in Christ. At The Summit Church, our campuses are striving to make the same impact by devoting themselves to one another and allowing that love to flow out to the community around them.

When you arrive for the first time, you will notice signs that ask you to turn on your hazard lights. From there, our parking team will escort you to the closest available parking spot. The Summit has a “come as you are” casual atmosphere. We have no expectations for attire.

All campuses offer special activities for kids and students. Times and locations vary by campus for middle and high school, so check their pages of this site for more information on regular programming.  All children ages 4th grade and younger check-in with a secure sticker system; the check-in process is quick and easy, and you’re given a secure code where only you can pick them up.

When you come for the first time, don’t forget to stop by the First Time Guest tent to introduce yourself. We’d love to meet you and your family, and answer any questions you may have.

The local outreach ministry at The Summit Church exists to send disciples to make disciples among the hurting and marginalized in our community.

Every year thousands of people are trafficked against their will and exploited for the profit of others. They are trapped and stripped of their freedom and dignity. This team works to bring the hope of the gospel to those trafficked and to support the caseworkers who assist survivors in recovery and reentry to society. Join this team in writing letters of encouragement to caseworkers and helping to supply for the the needs of trafficking survivors in the Triangle area.

School Engagement Team

Schools in our communities are hubs where people across all sectors of life gather. They form a common ground with needs that can be met by the Church through acts of service and kindness and building relationships to share the gospel. The Brier Creek team partners with local schools and GoMentor to provide three primary services: volunteerism, mentoring, and prayer. Volunteer opportunities include school supply drives, teacher appreciation breakfasts, and test proctoring.

Scripture makes it clear that caring for orphans is not reserved only for a few Christians; it is commanded of the entire Church. Earthly adoption is a powerful picture of our spiritual adoption in Christ; we were once fatherless but are now rescued out of the spiritual “fatherlessness” of our world into God’s family. By modeling God’s response to us to our friends and neighbors, we demonstrate the good news. This ministry team helps interested members of The Summit Church explore adoption and foster care and helps connect others to provide foster care support to these families to serve them in any way that can help, such as providing childcare and meals.

Wake Correctional Center

Prisons in RDU are filled with men and women whose lives are defined by what they’ve done to break the law, but the gospel offers the chance for their lives to be defined by what Jesus has done on the cross. The Summit prison ministry shows and shares the love of Christ with prisoners and their families pre- and post-release. Volunteer opportunities include prayer, mentoring (Sunday and Monday nights), family outreach, and helping ex-offenders get connected to jobs, housing, transportation, and other resources to reenter society.

Christian Library International

CLI works to make Christian materials available to inmates all over the United States. Their team shows the love of Christ by mailing materials to requesting prisons and by providing correspondence Bible studies for interested inmates.  Join this team to make the Gospel accessible to those behind bars.

First Choice Pregnancy Services

Single moms often bear a disproportionate share of the responsibility to care for the fatherless in our community and often struggle to hold multiple jobs to support their families while also caring for their children well. God commands his Church to be a family to those whose earthly family may have failed them (Isaiah 1:17, James 1:27), especially these women whom he calls beloved daughters. The Brier Creek team partners with First Choice Pregnancy Services to host baby showers or diaper drives, prepare meals for new moms, provide clothes or supplies, supply peer counselors, and give parental support.

Durham ESL
The Triangle has been growing by leaps and bounds in diversity and ethnicity over the past years, giving Summit members the opportunity to show and share the love of Christ by welcoming the newcomer. Learning English is a vital part of the relocation process. The Durham ESL class meets every Saturday at the Church of the Good Shepherd. Volunteers are needed to help with hospitality, childcare, conversation partners, and teaching.
