"First time attendee, the quality of workshop presenters was excellent. I enjoyed their presentations and their encouragement to move forward in prison ministry. I also enjoyed meeting and talking with the various ministry vendors and organization representatives. All of the information was helpful and useful."

"The Holy Spirit was so evident in the worship, speakers, & networking that I came away with the profound sense of unity in mission to reach the incarcerated for Jesus Christ."

"This was my first Summit. I saw people putting in action all the things I have been taught during my courses. There was something there for everyone, no matter the need or want. The venue, the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton Colllege, made it even more special. The anointing was amazing! You could feel the Spirit throughout the entire campus. GOD was in the house!"
