Momentum Youth Conference

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!

Momentum Travel Teams is a high school summer ministry training program equipping students to live on mission through evangelism training, character development, and servant-leadership.
Travel Teams offers experience with sharing your faith, learning many ministry skills, giving testimonies, building team relationships, and so much more! Team members memorize scripture, learn to spend quality time with God, are a part of a discipleship group, and learn the value of hard work. Foundational character qualities will be emphasized and taught by pastors, national ministry leaders, and trained adult mentors. Travel Teams are for any high school student regardless of their involvement in their youth ministry and/or leadership structure and Specialty Travel Teams are designed for students who are interested in pursuing more intense training in a particular area of ministry.
