The Summit The Summit Sep 25th 2014 - Dec 4th 2014

Location/Venue: Pinnacle Hills - Gatheria

The Summit began in September 2001 out of Dr. Ronnie Floyd’s desire to dramatically impact the business culture of Northwest Arkansas. Dr. Floyd, the Senior Pastor of Cross Church, desired to provide a weekly luncheon that would motivate, inspire and challenge business professionals to make the climb in the business world. His heart for the area coupled with his passion for leadership led him to teach principles that could literally change your future over lunch.

Since its inception, The Summit has become a premier place for connection, equipping and fellowship. Hundreds of business leaders from across our region come weekly to be equipped to make the climb in the business world. Today, the focus and format is the same however Dr. Floyd does not speak every week like he did in early years. Instead he invites significant leaders from around the country to share insights that could transform your career.

FNO is for children birth – 5th grade.

Friday Night Out (FNO) has been and continues to be an excellent opportunity for parents involved in Cross Church small groups. Participate in a Small Group the weeks prior to the Friday Night Out date desired to receive childcare. Childcare is provided to individuals with children fifth grade or younger between the hours of 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Registrations must be in by midnight the Wednesday prior. Sorry, no exceptions to the rules!

With the rising costs associated with this ministry we have made the decision to charge a very small fee to reduce cost overages. This new fee will be $10 for the entire evening, per family, whether you have one child or multiple children. This means for $10 your family receives childcare from 6:00-9:30 p.m.

It is our desire to be the very best stewards we can with what God has given to us. This change will allow us to continue to offer this great opportunity to small group participants while still offering an incredible value when compared to the childcare alternatives out there today.
