Our Bible School - Summit International School of Ministry
Summit International School of Ministry, the Bible School of Times Square Church, was founded by David Wilkerson in 1994.
Summit is located near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The 100-acre campus is situated near the foothills of the Blue Mountains in the heart of farm country. The school's two-year program prepares men and women to live lives of devotion and service to the Lord, to the church and to the world at large. The goal of the school is for students to be fully equipped to make disciples for Christ in whatever vocation they are called to. The school was founded in 1994 through the ministry of David Wilkerson. Since then, hundreds of students have graduated from Summit, and have moved on to work around the world in full-time ministry. Many are serving on foreign mission fields and impacting their homes and workplaces with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Summit president, Dr. Teresa Conlon, serves as associate pastor at Times Square Church. Summit students have the privilege of hearing from Times Square Church pastors, elders and staff at Summit chapel services and Bible classes. Times Square Church holds annual revival services at the Summit campus church and twice each year, the entire Summit student body travels to New York City to lead the Sunday 3PM service. Times Square Church also hosts the largest number of interns participating in Summit's post-graduate internship program.

Pausing at Summit
by Kate Hughes
A couple of years ago, in the hustle and bustle of life at Summit, a revolutionary thought occurred to us: we need to pause. Between classes, homework, ministries, outreaches, and events, life can get busy fast. And so, for one week every fall, we pause homework, exams, ministries and after class events. Students are encouraged to walk the fields to pray and spend time with God. Chapels are often extended without a cut-off time so the Lord can speak while we wait. It may seem counterintuitive at a Bible school to stop "doing," but in fact these times of just "being" in the presence of God without an agenda can be the most productive times of all.
In the cafeteria, I sit with a group of three guys and four girls at a table. They are all seniors who experienced "pause week" at Summit last year. I ask them what their thoughts are about it. Each person has their own personal experience with what the Lord did during that time. All of them are smiling and animated as they share what they feel impacted them the most, and I realize in that moment that carving out time with Christ is not just important, it's essential. Our students learn so much in the short two years they are here, but this lesson just might be one of the most important of all!
