What will I experience at Motion Conference?

Over these three days, students will experience engaging content, powerful worship, and community while learning how to put their faith into MOTION. Everyone will attend Main Sessions live in the auditorium together and then spread around the building during Motion Group times.

Who can attend Motion Conference?

This experience is designed for middle school (6th-8th grade), high school (9th-12th grade), and college-age (18-22) students. Although we allow incoming sixth graders, we ask you to consider the maturity of the student. Adult student ministry leaders are encouraged to attend with the students they lead. We also allow groups of Youth Leaders to register without bringing their students if they’d like to attend with a leadership/team-building focus.

Can parents attend Motion Conference?

Thank you for understanding that this is a student conference and there are no additional seats available for general admission adults.

Bring everyone you know! Motion Conference is designed for students to know God, grow together, and put their faith into MOTION.
