SUMMA: A Student Theological Debate Society


SUMMA: A Student Theological Debate Society is a unique program offered to high school students of any religious background who are theologically curious, who would like to better understand the Christian faith, and who, potentially, are ready to take steps forward into deepening faith and spiritual maturity.

No experience in theology, reasoning, or debate is required, or needed. Participants are rewarded with a uniquely meaningful experience, gaining tools for thinking, an in-depth introduction to the Christian theological tradition, and cutting edge exposure to areas such as religion and science, religion and society, and interfaith dialogue.

For more information email Rev. Cindy Fribourgh.
