OUR VISION

To nurture a global Summit Trace Church (STC) family


Our Purpose
To refresh, equip, and support individuals, ministries, and churches to serve God locally, nationally, and globally.


Refresh

Finally, brothers, rejoice.  Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. (2 Corinthians 13:11 ESV)

 

God desires to refresh us (Psalm 23:1-3) and is the only one capable of refreshing our soul. At STC, we are a place of refreshment for those who are weary. Beyond our safe, comfortable, and welcoming place of Sunday morning worship, we care for each other through practical helps, counseling, and creating opportunities for fellowship and friendship.  Encourage one another an build up one another (1 Thessalonians 5:11).


Equip
God has good works that He has prepared for us to do and the church
has a role to equip people for those works (Ephesians 4:11-13). Equipping
at STC begins with sound Bible-based teaching in our preaching, kids
ministry, and small group ministries. We also prepare people for specific
ministry tasks through training and serving opportunities locally, nationally, and internationally.


Support
Beloved, you are acting faithfully in whatever you accomplish for the brethren, and especially when they are strangers; and they have testified to your love before the church.  You will do well to send them on their way in a manner worthy of God.  For they went out for the save of the Name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles.  Therefore, we ought to support such men, so that we may be fellow workers with the truth (3 John 1:5-8)

 

God’s work is not confined to a single local church. He is working through
His church to communicate His gospel to hurting and broken world (Acts
1:8). STC has a purpose to reach outside our walls and come along side
individuals, ministries, and other churches to help them serve God in the
way He has called them. We do that by partnering with local schools and
ministries, funding mission trips, and aiding other churches.
