Founded in 1994 as Christian Evangelistic Outreach Ministries, Summit International began as a showcase for Dr. Michael Commini's faith-based services. In 2007, Summit International applied for and received non-profit status from the United States Internal Revenue Service. Now a 501(c)(3) General Public Charity, Summit's mission changed to embrace faith-based and non-faith-based environments and the team began developing online distance education centers and providing consulting services for academia, corporate, and government environments seeking to establish computer training programs and/or an online, distance education presence.
Among Dr. Commini's past clients are:
- Charis School of Divinity
- High Point Solutions
- ArrowTekSystems, Inc.
- Abbi-Cris International
- Charis Academy Online
- US Joint Forces Command Joint Knowledge Development Distribution Capability
- US Joint Forces Command Joint Knowledge Online
- Saudi Aramco
The name was changed to Summit International in 2011 to reflect the change in mission scope from strictly US-based to now providing a wholistic solution for those who need it most wherever in the world they reside. By establishing academic and corporate training environments, Summit International addresses client needs through competency-based learning interactions. By establishing clinics and medical services, Summit International addresses clients' physical and emotional well-being. And by establishing faith-based organizations, Summit International addresses their spiritual well-being. If your organization is located on one of the seven continents of the world, Summit International stands ready to help it succeed in its mission too!
