Our Vision. Living for the Benefit of Others.
Summit International School of Ministry exists to train men and women for ministry through a transformative relationship with Jesus Christ. At Summit we define ministry as living for the benefit of others. Our hope is to influence a generation that is inspired to give back; a generation trained, transformed and equipped to make disciples for Jesus Christ. Our mission supports this vision by building the spiritual foundation that allows Christian leaders to become spiritually free and entirely useful in whatever vocation they are called to.
Summit is the Bible School of Times Square Church and was founded in 1994 through the ministry of David Wilkerson. Summit is carried under the legacy and leadership of Times Square Church. The heartbeat of the school is a beautiful reflection and practical application of the truth that is taught through the leadership at TSC.
As a student, you will reap the benefits of having the pastoral staff of Times Square Church as regular guest speakers and lecturers during your chapel and class times. In addition, Times Square Church’s extensive connection with ministries all around the world will give you the chance to engage in a wide range of post-graduate ministry opportunities. Summit alumni can be found working alongside ministries on almost every continent on the globe!
We Train. God Transforms.
Summit provides a well-rounded understanding of ministry through two years of academic, spiritual and practical training. We endeavor to present a clear understanding of your position in Christ, and the freedom He has purchased for you. A clear biblical worldview becomes the lens through which you see the world and people living in it. This, in turn, can transform your life and the way you share Jesus with others.
At Summit, we recognize the value of each person that passes through our doors, and we are committed to investing in those who feel called by God to make a difference in their generation. The importance of this call extends beyond the time you spend on our campus; it is an investment in your spiritual life that you take with you wherever God calls you.

Remembering Pastor William Carrol
It is with heavy hearts we announce the loss of our brother, pastor, teacher, and friend, William Carrol. Pastor William went home to be with Jesus on Wednesday, January 27, 2021
“Pastor Will,” as he was known to students, was the Chair of Curriculum Development at Summit, as well as a member of our faculty, teaching courses on Systematic Theology, New Testament Survey, Harmony of Bible Doctrines I & II, as well as an elective called Defending the Faith. He held a degree in Bible, an MA in Philosophy of Religion, and was pursuing his MA in Divinity. He was awarded several distinguished memberships, including the Delta Epsilon Chi and Sigma Chi Pi Honor Societies.
Having had the honor of William Carrol teach at Summit can never be overstated. There are few people who can genuinely be called a genius; but he, without hesitation, fit that description. His in-depth understanding of scripture, grasp of apologetics, and ability to communicate complex subjects in a simple manner was second to none. Students often waited after class, saving their most complicated theological questions for him; and he, always with a gentle smile, would speak truth to their questions layer by layer, gently and effectively unraveling the mysteries of scripture until all that remained was the simple truth of Christ.
His brilliance, however, came second to his humility and humanity. He loved people. Often, he and his wife Tressy would invite students and alumni to stop by their home for a cup of tea and a chat. The day after his passing, students gathered informally in the chapel to pray and share memories of Pastor Will’s impact on their lives. One student described his “unmatched grace for those around him.” Another said, “He always told us, ‘You can change the world,’ and we believed him.” Another spoke about him like a father, telling the story of how he called to check in on him when he was sick. One by one, they spoke of his patience, his encouragement, his love. No matter who you are, if you knew him, you knew he was in your corner. And so, as one student shared so poignantly, “Let us continue with our faces toward heaven, let us live up to our greater potential, changing more and more to the image of Christ.” In his honor, let us endeavor to live like he did, for the benefit of others.
Thank you for supporting Summit. We are committed to investing in the lives of students who have the desire to know what it means to live for the benefit of others. Your gift helps make this possible.
