Summit Community Church

Children's Ministry Director



Why I Love This Opportunity

Kenny Conley


Summit is an AMAZING church with a HUGE vision for the West Valley (Phoenix)! This 20-year-old church moved into a beautiful new building only months before COVID. They were very intentional with their space, creating environments that empower effective and safe ministry to the next generation. Additionally, Summit is heavily invested in ministry to the Next Generation, where they prioritize their efforts to kids and teenagers. An experienced Kids’ ministry leader will thrive in the ministry environment that Summit has created!
