HELLO, WE'RE EXCITED YOU'RE HERE!
Whether you’d like to speak to our team about the conference or you’re ready to sign up your church for Momentum 2020, please fill out the form below to let us know!
Second, students register themselves for Momentum once registration opens on February 1! After your church has been added to our system, your students can register under it by selecting it as their sending church.
- A “new church” is defined as one that has not had any students attend youth conference in the past three years (2016, 2017, 2018).
- Each student who registers and attends Momentum from a new church will receive a $25 discount.
- A new church will receive one free Youth Worker registration for every increment of six students who register and attend Momentum 2019.
These meetings are:
(1) immediately following the morning session and before lunch
(2) immediately following the evening session. After this evening group time, groups retire to the dorm for the evening.
After each session the Lead Contact from each group receives questions that correlate with that session’s speaker as a resource to help start discussion, but youth groups are invited to spend this time in whichever format is most effective for their group.
- Sport Tournaments (ex. dodgeball, basketball, soccer, volleyball)
- Outreach/Ministry Opportunities in the community
- Plan your own off-campus activity
- On campus auxiliary games
- On campus swimming pool
- Art Electives
- & More
When you start the registration process, we assign your group a lead contact (usually your lead youth pastor or administrative assistant). This person receives an email in early June that guides them through signing their students/group up for afternoon ministry opportunities. Options on campus (sports, fun activities, seminars) are open for students to join without advanced sign up necessary. Sign-ups are on a first come, first served basis. We will help guide you through this process.
Bear in mind that there are other opportunities such as sports tournaments, area attractions, fun auxiliary opportunities on campus, art electives, etc. going on during the afternoon times as well. We send out a schedule of everything happening on campus and off campus ahead of time so you can see what each day’s schedule is.
Youth Staff orientation is a mandatory meeting for all youth workers at 5:00. Plan to arrive in time for check-in, move into dorm, and staff orientation dinner (students eat dinner in the dining commons while the youth leaders have this orientation dinner/meeting in a separate room). After orientation, youth workers meet-up with their students to go to the opening session.
2. You will temporarily park your bus, van or car. Only 1-2 adult leaders from each group enters the check-in to complete check-in for their entire group. Students and other adults will wait outside.
Once Check-in is completed, you will head to your dorms assigned to your group where you will unload your luggage and move in.
We suggest you designate a regrouping time/location after your group moves into the dorm (keeping in mind that youth workers attend an orientation meeting at 5:00).
For every session, the doors remain closed until 15 minutes before a session. Most groups like to sit together for the sessions and they often have individuals enter to save a block of seats for their group members. If this is what you want to do for the remaining sessions of the week, you will want to work with your group on planning for that. You will need to have 1 person for every 5 seats that you reserve.
Here’s some of the things you may hear:
YDYW or Your Day, Your WayEvery afternoon, each youth group plans their own schedule. A number of activities are available, such as sport tournaments, going out into the community on ministry projects, various other on-campus activities, or a group may plan their own off-campus excursion.
Power TracksHour-long seminars on Wed, Thurs, Fri for students. Some youth groups like to have all their students attend the same trax, while others leave it up to each student to choose the trax that appeals to them. Youth workers can attend these trax, or there are they have the option to attend a Youth Worker Lab.
On MissionThe missions portion of our conference is modeled after Acts 1:8. Various opportunities are provided as options for Wednesday, Thursday or Friday afternoon. The entire conference is then involved in a community ministry project on Saturday.
Youth Group TimeScheduled debriefing time for groups to meet.
Travel TeamsA Momentum Ministry in which students spend 5 weeks on tour nationally in June and July on a ministry team prior to Momentum.
Urban CentersThe inner-city church and training center through Momentum Ministry Partners.
- Garage sale
- Silent auction
- Live auction
- Flower fundraiser through Living Color Fundraiser
- Mulch Sale
- Personal Letters
A Note on writing personal letters: Most people would rather give money to support the spiritual growth of a friend/relative rather than buy something that they may not want/need and in which the student will only get a small percentage of the money spent.
When writing personal letters, make it realistic and attainable…If you send out 40 letters and ½ of them are returned with a donation of $20.00 you will have $400.00. If you send out 80 letters and ½ of them are returned each person only needs to give $10.00 and you’ll have $400.00
We welcome Day Guests to visit Momentum! We encourage students and leaders who would like to visit Momentum to see what it is like in the hope that they might register for the entire conference the following year.
