What is the Summit? The Summit is a two-day conference for pregnancy care center directors, volunteers, staff, and board members. It’s designed to sustain PCCs as effective Gospel outreaches. We enlist speakers who will challenge and encourage you, and line up practical and relevant workshops. We also allow plenty of time for you to interact with each other.

Here’s what people said about last year’s Summit: Highlight of the year. . . . So uplifting. . . . Hope to bring more from our center next year. . . . It’s part of our annual training. . . . Loved the whole experience. . . . A time to learn new things and be refreshed in our mission. Looking forward to next year!

When is the Summit? May 18-19, 2017

Who are the speakers? Pastor Andy Merritt is our featured speaker. He’s a pro-life leader who’s helped establish and train over 500 centers. Other speakers include Stuart Carver (Family God’s Way), Bob Foust, Dr. Stan Haegert, Mary Margaret Gibson (EvanTell/Save the Mother, Save Her Child), Kim Ketola (Cradle My Heart), Jim Sprague, Carolyn Doyle, and Christen Pollo (Students for Life of Michigan).
