J. Michael Smith, Esq., President of HSLDA
Announcing the Summit Ministries Home School Session

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Michael Farris, founder of Home School Legal Defense Association and
President of Patrick Henry College, will be a featured speaker at the
Summit Home School Session, September 1-13, 2002, in Manitou Springs,
Colorado. Dr. David Noebel, President of Summit Ministries, is
offering this special session for home educated high school and
college students and their parents.

The two-week course includes Old and New Testament survey, defense of
creation vs. evolution, Christian leadership principles, cultural
crisis in Generation X, America's Christian heritage, and Biblical
ethics: abortion, homosexuality, and drugs. The faculty assisting
Dr. Noebel consists of outstanding Christian scholars from
universities throughout the country.

Since 1962, the Summit has pioneered training in Biblical worldviews
as preparation for the college challenges of socialism, evolution,
liberalism, ethical relativism, and the various forms of humanism:
Marxist, New Age, secular, and postmodern. A component in Islamic
worldview in relation to these topics will also be explored.

Because this session is designed for a smaller group, Dr. Noebel is
providing complimentary accommodations for parents who wish to audit
the course. Meal tickets may be purchased at a reasonable cost.

The Summit piloted a September session in 2000. Forty-five home
educated students from across the United States, Canada, and China
attended. Although the 2000 session was a huge success, insufficient
enrollment necessitated canceling it in 2001. A minimum of 75
students is needed for the 2002 session to be held. Please contact
Summit Ministries before July 5, 2002, if you are interested in

High school parents should seriously consider this opportunity. The
student tuition of $625 may be paid throughout the summer, including
a deposit to reserve a space. Partial scholarships are also
available. For further information, call Jen at Summit Ministries,
719-685-9103 or visit

We hope you will take advantage of this excellent educational

Sincerely yours,

J. Michael Smith
HSLDA President
