About Summit

Our mission is to transform Estes through the hope of Jesus Christ.

SUMMIT Church seeks to be a community where the hope, grace, and love of God is extended and received. We understand that everyone, at different times throughout their lives, need to experience the hope, grace and love of God. We believe God is acting through us, his people, as we love others and extend grace when life gets hard. We pray Christ's hope transforms and his grace overflows.

At SUMMIT, all are welcome. Invite your family and friends to experience the grace of God and see Estes transformed by the hope of Christ.


We believe in one God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the Savior of all who put their faith in Him alone.

We believe Jesus shows us what God is like. When Jesus’s disciples asked him to show them, God, he said that “Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.” Jesus reveals to us a new way of being in the world and asks us to follow him and his way of love. 


We believe that those who are made new in Christ are called to be holy in character and conduct, and can only live this way by being filled with the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Bible and its sufficiency to establish our faith and conduct. 

We believe God wills for people everywhere to know Him and be made new in Christ. 

We believe that the purpose of the Church is to worship God in spirit and in truth, and to reach a lost and fallen world with the gospel of Jesus Christ through its worship, witness, and loving deeds.


Our Leadership Team

  • Tim Smith

    lead Pastor / Facilitator


    Tim and his family accepted the call to lead SUMMIT Church and moved to Estes Park in July 2022. He grew up in southern California and met his wife Bree while attending college at Point Loma Nazarene University. Following graduation from Mid-America Nazarene University, Tim completed a Master of Divinity from Nazarene Theological Seminary. Together, Bree and Tim have lived in Lawrence-KS, Seattle-WA, Hermosa Beach-CA and Ridgecrest-CA before making their home here in Estes Park. Tim is ordained in the Wesleyan Church and is excited to be part of what God is doing in Estes Park.



    Anita and her family moved to Estes Park in August of 2014.  She earned a degree in Early Childhood Education and began her career as a teacher.  However, God had other plans.  After teaching in public schools, God provided the opportunity for her to use her talents and gifts for the Lord in ministry as a Children’s Director in a church in Illinois.  Anita feels a call in her life to minister not only to children and youth, but also to their families.


    The Local Board of Administration includes:

    Patti Aldridge, Cleone Beall, Taylor Bodin, Rick Jenkins, and Melissa Westover. 

Sundays @ summit

Most people come in "mountain casual" attire. You'll see  Boots, Flip-Flops, Flannels and T-Shirts. At SUMMIT, all are welcome!

Our Sunday gathering will last about an hour with twenty minutes of music. The kids will experience a fun, interactive and relevant teaching and those gathered in the main worship setting will receive an engaging and thought provoking message, rooted in Scripture.

At SUMMIT we gather at the Lord's Table at least once a month, on the last Sunday.

SUMMIT is a multi-generational church, where the 6, 26, and 86 year old all matter, and all have a seat at the table. No matter your age or background, there’s a place for you and your family here.
