What is Summit House and how does it work?
Summit House at Sioux Falls Seminary is located in Pettigrew Heights, a central Sioux Falls neighborhood targeted for revitalization.  The house provides an opportunity for students to apply what they are learning inside the classroom to life.  This unique and practical living experience provides reasonably priced room and board at Summit House in exchange for 5 hours of service per week.  The benefits: living in Christian community, making a difference in the lives of the poor, growing in your faith, receiving valuable first-hand experience, and more!  To inquire about Summit House, call 800.440.6227 or e-mail
