About Summit Life

We believe the gospel is a deep well of transformative grace – and we’ll never find the bottom.


We know life with Jesus extends beyond Sunday mornings. That’s why providing daily broadcasts, honest podcasts, insightful blogs, and challenging books are all part of J.D.’s ministry as a pastor – and as a believer. At the end of the day, we want you to be drawn deeper into the gospel and to fall more in love with Jesus.
