Hands-On Ministry

Momentum is an annual, national youth conference for students in 6th-12th grade. We are about connecting youth to God, helping them to understand where they belong in God’s kingdom and how they can know God’s purpose for their lives. Momentum Youth Conference creates an atmosphere conducive to learning, listening, serving, and following Jesus.

Students come to this experience expecting to encounter God, to be challenged in their faith, to learn and be reminded of  truth from God's Word, to strengthen their relationships with their youth group and peers, and to have lots of fun!

We love volunteers who make the Momentum experience possible. On the road in 2021, we'll need volunteers in each location to serve in various ways.


Ministry at Momentum

Ministry opportunities at Momentum are transferable experiences that act as a catalyst for students to be ON MISSION at home.

Hand & Heart Impact

In all of our partnerships we strive for a “hand and heart” impact.


Hand: We work with our hands and accomplish a task that serves people and shows them that we care.


Heart: We talk with whoever we can as we serve or before and after with the intention to share the Gospel and plant seeds.

We teach simple acronyms and methods in main sessions to help students know how to start conversations and simply share the hope that they have.

Got Talent
At Momentum, students are encouraged to practice skills and talents. Momentum’s Got Talent is an opportunity for students to be critiqued by our panel and showcased at Momentum (in many fields whether performance-based or not).

Unique to this year, chosen students will advance to being featured on Momentum’s Instagram and Facebook accounts. Select students will be invited to be showcased on the main stage at one Momentum On the Road location.

Students can start entering Momentum’s Got Talent on April 15 by sending their submission video or photos of their original artwork and their entry form to
