The Summit is a non-denominational, non-charismatic church designed for Worship, Fellowship, Discipleship, Ministry, and Outreach. We are a casual place where real people from all walks of life can come to cultivate relationships with God and each other. Our Pastor, Jim Dean, delivers compelling and positive messages that can easily be applied to our lives in today's world. Our worship performs comtemporary songs that are both entertaining and inspiring. You can learn more about God and yourself with our Small Group Program. There are countless opportunities to volunteer in our community or participate in events that benefit the entire world. We hold numerous fellowship events where we can cultivate new friendships and renew old ones.
The Summit began with a Bible study group that met at the home of Jim and Lisa Dean in the spring of 2005. Nine persons gathered weekly for prayer and study in an attempt to seek the Lord's direction in beginning a new church that reached out to those who did not attend church or those who had no personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In April 2010, The Summit Church purchased 15 acres of land in Dills Cove. This will provide our growing church family a home as well as a ministry center that serves our community.
The Summit church held its first worship service on September 11, 2005 at the Family Resource Center in Webster N.C. The dream was to begin a fresh worship experience that would honor God by bringing all who attend into a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ.
Since then the church has quickly grown into a vibrant community of faith that features creative worship, exciting fellowship, spiritual growth and ministry for all ages and community outreach.
On September 10, 2006, The Summit moved to Cullowhee Valley School for Sunday worship. This allowed the congregation to accommodate space for worship, small groups and its children's ministry.

If you are looking for a relationship with God or for a church family to help you grow spiritually we invite you to join us at The Summit.
Our church is autonomous and maintains the right to govern its own affairs independent of any denominational entities. Realizing, however, the benefits of cooperation with fellow believers, our church voluntarily aligns itself with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Of North Carolina, the Western North Carolina Regional Network, and other like-minded churches and organizations.
