BOARD OF ELECTED LEADERS

Scott & Christy Kirschner


We're the Kirschner Family with our kids: Gage, Deed and Janie. We're so thankful that God has been growing, restoring, redeeming, and loving on the Kirschner Family for over 22 years now! Being a busy, active family is what we enjoy! So, our hobbies include camping, hiking, traveling for football, gardening, joining our local crossfit gym, and doing ministry together. Serving on the board and leadership team at Summit has opened the doors to meaningful relationships and much personal growth with the Lord. It has also presented opportunities to use our God given gifts and talents for His kingdom. We work hard, play hard and love hard!

We have been married for 28 years and were blessed with two children. We gained another son and daughter and have been promoted to grandparents adding to our family two beautiful grandkids! We can’t forget to mention our two fur babies and chickens. We made Summit our church family two years ago and have served in a variety of areas. We have been walking with the Lord for over 25 years and continue to pursue our relationship with our King Jesus! Aaron’s willingness to come along side others when called on to help, fixing almost anything, prompt, man of excellence, and an avid hunter.
