Momentum Youth Conference West 2008 will take place at Biola University in La Mirada, California, Monday, June 23-Saturday, June 28, 2008. The conference schedule will combine training and challenges with two days of hands-on ministry.
Cost for the entire week of ministry and challenge will be $329 for students and $299for Youth Workers. Francis Chan will start off the week with worship music by Todd Proctor and his band.
Because of the unique schedule, Momentum West will be limited to 500 participants. CE National will provide opportunities for youth groups to have a two-day mission experience on Wednesday and Thursday and work on projects as youth groups during those two days. An overnight stay may be granted for those in wanting to be part of a Mexico ministry or another extensive ministry.
The ministry options may include building homes in Mexico, ministering to the homeless, ministering to Muslims, working with a women’s shelter, or distributing foods to needy people. There will also be ministry opportunities for those who choose to remain closer to campus. Challenging programming will be available Wednesday and Thursday nights with opportunities for testimonies.
Momentum East will be held at Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio, Monday, July 21-Sunday, July 27. Momentum East will include two major carnival events, one in Columbus, and one in Dayton, on Saturday, July 26, provided through cooperation with Convoy of Hope and networked local churches.
Students attending Momentum East will use part of the day Friday to distribute flyers, set up events, contact people, and spiritually prepare for an effective day of reaching people.
Both carnivals will include free groceries, free dental checkups, school registrations, blood pressure checks, children’s games, special programs, and, of course, opportunities to share Jesus. Each carnival will have a prayer tent where students and adults can pray for specific requests people share.
The cost for Momentum East will not increase from last year. The price will remain at $444 for students and $306 for counselors for the entire week which includes all programming, meals, lodging, air-conditioned facilities, and ministry opportunities.
Francis Chan will begin the week at Cedarville and Steve Fee will lead worship. David Nasser will be on the program once again, as will Jeff Bogue and others. For more information and to register, log onto http://www.buildmomentum.org/.
