Summit Grove welcomes Dustin Kunkle as the new Executive Director! He will begin in early April.

Dustin Kunkle has served as Program Manager for the Pikes Peak Small Business Development Center since 2015. He provided direction to a team of people who served small business owners with consulting, training, and resources for starting and growing small businesses. Before that, Dustin and his wife, Lauren, were missionaries in China and Colorado Springs, serving with Youth With A Mission for over four years. Their focus and passion was primarily on Business as Mission – demonstrating the kingdom of God in the context of business on the mission field. Dustin’s experiences include developing an ice cream business in China and a coffee shop in Colorado Springs.

Dustin thrives on working at the intersection of business, missions, and family. With his experience in both entrepreneurship and management, he has a unique ability to relate with both visionaries and implementers in a variety of contexts. He received his BA in Entrepreneurship from Grove City College in 2009. 

Dustin and his wife Lauren met in business school at Grove City College and have been married since 2011. They have three young sons — Grady, Miles and Trace. Before coming to Summit Grove, they lived in Colorado Springs, where they were actively involved in Christian men’s and women’s groups focused on fellowship, prayer, recovery, and healing.
