Summit Theological Seminary is an non-accredited[1] Bible college located in Peru, Indiana, on State Highway 31. The school is affiliated with the Christian churches and churches of Christ. According to the school website, the school was founded in 1984.[citation needed]

Programs and degrees[edit]

Summit offers both distance learning and resident study. Distance learning utilizes several types of media, requires the student to build up a library of various texts, and includes proctored exams.[citation needed] Resident classes are held at various times during the week on the campus of the school. Both programs may be combined toward a degree.

The school offers a Diploma of Biblical Studies program, bachelor's and master's degrees in theology, sacred literature, and religion.[citation needed]


Summit is not an accredited school, which is noted on its website in several places.[1][2] The school discourages attendance if one wishes to be ordained by a "mainline denomination", or be an armed forces chaplain.[1]

According to Summit, their class credits "may or may not accept our under-graduate credits because we are not accredited."[1]

The Chancellor of Summit is George L. Faull, who has been preaching since 1962, and earned a Doctor of Religion degree in 1981.[citation needed] He has been the evangelist at several local congregations and written for over 15 publications.[citation needed]
