Bishop Tom Madden visits Summit during Prayer & Fasting

Recently, the staff and students at Summit participated in TSC's prayer and fasting event, culminating at the worldwide prayer meeting held on our campus. During those few days, as our busy moments paused, there was a sensitivity and awareness of the Holy Spirit that impacted us in a profound way.

During the second day of the prayer event, Bishop Tom Madden came to visit Summit, urging and encouraging students to lean into the presence of God and to fully comprehend the moment we are living in. Bishop Madden serves as the overseer of 260 churches in the State of Georgia, and he continues to have a burden for this next generation. "God knows who you are, and he knows where he wants to take you", he exhorted those who gathered in the chapel, "people will give you advice and tell you what you need to do, but when you know the Holy Spirit and the voice of the Holy Spirit in your life, He can raise you up in a moment to turn the land upside down for the gospel. He has a plan and a purpose for your life."

Bishop Madden explored the story of Zacchaeus from Luke chapter 19, illustrating how Zacchaeus, by repositioning himself high in a tree, sought to see all of Jesus. "It's going to take ordinary people like you want to make a difference in the world? Reposition yourself to see all of Jesus. Reposition yourself to hear the Holy Spirit." He stressed the importance of recognizing Kairos moments within chronological time, asserting that we are currently living in a unique Kairos moment in history—a time where God promises to pour out His Holy Spirit on each of us.

Pastor Tim Dilena, our Senior Pastor, has been speaking messages in the same vein this year. It's time to let the Holy Spirit move in our lives in an even deeper way. God is doing something special at Summit, and we are blessed to be the direct beneficiaries of those who are determined to light a fire under those who want all that God has for them.
