Wade Summers

Connections Director

Wade Summers served as our Community Outreach Coordinator for a few years and transitioned to the role of Connections Director in 2021. Wade is also 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 get to know a family from the U.S. Wade and his wife, Karen, have been coming to Grace since 2015.  They serve together as foster parents. 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.
