    Prior to arriving in Estes Park, Aaron has been in full time ministry since graduating from Indiana Wesleyan University 1997 with a degree in Christian Ministries, sixteen years as a youth pastor and the last two years as a church planter. God has given Aaron and his family the opportunity to minister in NC, IN, MD, MI, and now in CO. After 16 years in Student Ministries, God moved in Aaron’s heart to plant a church. After two and a half years working to plant Elevate Church in Sterling Heights, MI, God led Aaron to Summit Church to follow his passion to reach the lost, disciple believers, and equip believers to fulfill the mission of Jesus.


    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.
