Our Story

How It All Started

The Summit Church began in 1998 in our Little Rock location when six men and their wives stepped out in faith to plant a new church in Central Arkansas with a passion to reach the next generation. Within two weeks, 130 courageous pioneers joined them in a school cafeteria and The Summit Church was born. Over the last couple of decades The Summit has planted churches in multiple cities in Central Arkansas, trained church planters to be sent around the country, and has sent missionaries around the world. In 2018, during the 20th Anniversary of the church, a new God-sized goal and vision was cast to see The Summit spiritually influence every county of Arkansas, see churches planted in 100 cities of North America, and impact 100 countries of the world through prayer, planting, and partnering.

Planting In Bentonville

Fulfilling the Vision of The Summit Church, in 2021 the Elders in The Summit Church of Central Arkansas sent Kyle Fowler to begin a new church in North West Arkansas. To start a new work that would stand on its own and carry the name of The Summit to a new region of our state. Watch this video to hear from The Directional Pastor of The Summit, Kyle Reno, and the strategy of planting churches around our state.
