Wade Summers

Connections Director

Wade Summers works in Grace’s Community department to facilitate all things local outreach at Grace. He’s well suited for the post because of his passion for international students, campus ministry and our Extending Grace ministry. Wade is most excited to help showcase how folks already doing local outreach and calling others who’ve not yet engaged to join in. Wade and his wife, Karen have been coming to Grace since 2015 and they also are a foster family. Wade is the president of Friends of International Students, an organization that pairs up American families with international students so that students can have the occasional meal, celebrate holidays and gets to know a family from the U.S. Wade is big on audiobooks, going on walks with Karen and their dog and getting to know international students that land at the University of Iowa.
