What is Momentum?
Momentum is a weeklong youth conference centered around helping the students grow in their relationship with Christ and with others
When/Where is it?
Momentum is this year is July 18-23, 2017. It is being held at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana.
Why go to Momentum?
Momentum is a great opportunity for students to learn more about God, and grow in their relationship with him. It is also an opportunity for the students to get out of their comfort zone as they are given opportunities to do outreach in the surrounding communities.
What will we do there?
Momentum is a week jam packed with sessions where the students get to hear from great speakers such as Keith Minier, and Jeff Bogue. During the afternoons, there are opportunities for the students to participate in sports tournaments, outreach projects, and many more fun activities!
How do I register?
Go to Momentum’s website, buildmomentum.org and complete the registration steps
How are we getting there?
We will be riding a charter bus through the night to get to Momentum. The bus will be separated into guy’s and girl’s sections, for the overnight portion of the bus ride. During the day portion of the bus ride we will watch movies, and fellowship with each other, as well as stop for a meal each way.
How much does the bus cost?
$0!!!! This year, we were able to budget enough money into the Momentum fund that we can pay for the Momentum bus, so that its even cheaper for students to go to Momentum!
What time will we depart from Grace?
Be at the church at 11pm on Monday, July 17, so that we can pack the bus, and get the students signed in, in order to be pulling out of GCC by 11:30pm
What time will we be back?
We hope to be arrive back at GCC at around 4pm on Sunday, July 23. We will encourage the students to be in contact with whoever is picking them up when we are closer to GCC.
Is it too late to register?
Registration is open and can be done until the beginning of Momentum on July 18, but you need to register and pay in full by June 15 in order to pay the lowest price.
How do I register?
Go to buildmomentum.org to register
When is payment due?
Pay the student’s balance by June 15, to get the lowest price. If the balance is not paid in full by June 15, the price will increase but can be paid up until July 17.
What should I pack?
Full packing list can be found on buildmomentum.org
How much money should I bring?
We encourage the students to bring no more than $75… They’ll need money to buy meals to and from, souvenirs during the week, and for the love offering, which benefits multiple charities. Be warned that whatever money is sent with the student will most likely be spent.
Are cell phones allowed?
Cell phones are allowed, they cannot be used during the sessions, and if they are being used at inappropriate times, they will be confiscated and returned at the end of the week.
What is the rooming situation?
Roommate selection will occur on the bus, on our way to Momentum. During the week, the students will be staying in one of the on-campus dorms. The dorm buildings are divided by gender, and the opposite gender will not be allowed to each other’s dorms.
