World Class Training
Students attending the full week of Momentum Youth Conference can elect to also participate in one of our newly offered camps this summer: Apologetics and Worship.
Each afternoon, attendees at Momentum have free time to participate in on-campus options or off-campus ministry. Students electing for one of these additional training camps will use the afternoon on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for this specialized time. Attendance is limited for both tracks in order to create a hands-on learning atmosphere.
Get world-class teaching from Dr. Sean McDowell in this three-day format:1. In-depth training on Biblical Sexuality: God's design for sex, LGBTQ+, and gender identity
2. In-depth training on hot-button apologetic topics: absolute truth, Scripture, Creation, etc.
3. Off-campus trip to have spiritual conversations and put into use the training from days 1 and 2
Students in this camp are offered a unique experience to learn in a smaller setting from one of today’s leading apologists and Christian authors, ask questions, have conversations, and get on-the-ground training.
Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis until space is filled. This camp is limited to 40 participants and is only offered to students in 11th and 12th grade. If a student younger than 11th grade is interested in this option, email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on a waitlist.
Registrants are asked to read two books prior to arrival at Momentum Youth Conference (included in cost): Chasing Love and Is God a Human Invention? These books will be shipped to registrants from Momentum.
