Momentum Youth Conference

Bring a New Church
Life-Changing Sessions
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!

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.

Who Can Attend?
2022 Theme: REWIRED

What causes us to sin? What moves us to holiness? What part of us initiates belief? What is inside of us that generates doubt?

There is only one thing – our hearts.

Only the Gospel is beautiful enough to REWIRE our heart and produce in it all the affections that will cause us to live new lives. Throughout the Bible, God is chiefly after our hearts. Enjoy Jesus, and he will change your heart.

A REWIRED heart affects the way we treat other people, where we find our identity, how we live our everyday lives, what our purpose ultimately is, and what we put our hope in for eternity.

Ezekiel 36:26, "And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart."

Our theme follows concepts in the Rewired, authored by Momentum 2022 Speaker, David Bowden.
Get ready for Momentum Youth Conference with the Rewire Your Heart devotional on YouVersion's Bible App.
