Connecting Leaders for Greater Impact

With your support, we can help more local leaders do more good for more people.

When you support Summit, you’re helping local leaders come together to network, brainstorm, and learn—a combination of benefits that leads to stronger organizations, which can then expand their positive impact throughout our region.

While our 40,000-square-foot building already serves as a relational hub for about 200 business, nonprofit, and church leaders, there are so many more who can benefit from our space and our services.

Our Core Services

As iron sharpens iron, leaders are at their best when they are connected to other leaders. Summit hosts gatherings, events, and space for leaders to connect daily.
Leaders need real-time support to effectively execute their plans. Summit provides individual coaching services to business, church, and nonprofit leaders.
The power of shared best practices and shared learning enables leaders to go further faster. The Summit team brings over 100 years of combined experience in leadership and management.
Support and encouragement are vital for leaders to fully live out their calling. The Summit team currently offers counseling services with a network of over 40 professional counselors, therapists, and life coaches.

The Need

In March 2022, we bought the existing building at 3515 Bristol Highway with the help of the incredible generosity of the building owners who sold us the property well below the appraised value. While this spacious facility allows us to continue a leadership movement across the Appalachian Highlands, it also means that our potential to serve leaders has more than doubled!

But for us to bring that potential into reality, we need to redesign our existing space. We envision a unique collection of meeting rooms, creative areas, and conference rooms, allowing more leaders to collaborate for greater regional and Kingdom impact.

The Vision

At the heart of our vision is a plan to serve as a relational hub for local leaders to come together and craft creative responses to community challenges and opportunities—all in a location that’s easily accessible from anywhere in the Appalachian Highlands region. Specifically, we intend to provide well-thought-out spaces including comfortable offices, convenient meeting and professional development rooms, adaptable flex spaces, and more, including:

  • A main conference room for up to 200 people
  • 4 large meeting rooms for up to 60 people
  • 6 “board meeting” rooms for up to 20 people
  • 3 small meeting rooms for up to 4 people
  • 8 “flex space” rooms with multiple coworking or individual meeting configurations
  • 10 offices for staff and resident partners
  • Several creative spaces with access to coffee and snacks
  • Multiple outdoor gathering spaces
  • A fully equipped catering kitchen
  • Multiple storage areas
  • Recording studio with podcast capabilities

This improved design will provide leaders the ideal setting to meet with their peers, to learn from each other and from Summit, and expand their reach while significantly lessening their overhead costs!

This is where you come in.

When we all work together, we can accomplish so much more than working alone. Your generous donation will help us spark action that will spread throughout the Appalachian Highlands!

Not only will you get to be part of a movement of regional nonprofits, churches, and businesses making big things happen for the people they serve, but you will also create a lasting legacy of change for yourself and your family!
