Decisions among the fellowships — what few decisions there are — are put to the network as much as possible. This is done directly, or through a designated rep from each Summit. Representatives from network of Summit Fellowships get together about six times a year (alternate) to pray, talk and deal with whatever situations that come up that require an “official” response. The board functions informally and unanimously. It is not hierarchical in the sense of handing down pronouncements. Rather, it is a representative body that serves to facilitate relationship among the groups and communicate needs and suggestions throughout the network of The Summit Fellowships and beyond.
