Momentum Youth Conference, hosted annually by CE National, has been cancelled for 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and projections for attendance. Below is the announcement sent by the Momentum office.
Normally this time of year our Momentum team would be very busy working on session plans, talking through ministry opportunities, and praying for registrants, but due to COVID 19 and projections for attendance this summer, we are sad to announce we will not be hosting a traditional Momentum week in July.
This was an extremely difficult decision that we’ve researched thoroughly and delayed making as long as possible in the hope that circumstances would make for more allowances. Momentum has been frequently communicating with the IWU Re-Opening Task Force and country/state health departments to provide the best possible safe environment on campus. However, because of the inability for youth groups to do fundraisers, the complexities of transportation, social distancing, flights, differing stages of reopening state to state making it hard for groups to decide if they are able to come, and uncertainties from parents, we have had to make this decision.
We are deeply disappointed not to be planning for the best week of summer as we know the impact the Lord has in the lives of students and leaders through Momentum and how it serves as a launching pad for the youth ministries that partner with us.
We are excited to be thinking towards the future and for plans to be back together for Momentum 2021. In the meantime, we will be releasing “Best of Momentum,” our staff picks of sessions over the years that we know will encourage and sharpen you in your walk with God.
We will also be sending out information in July pertaining to regional Momentum one day events taking place in the fall and winter!
Thank you for continuing to support the ministry of Momentum and CE National. Look for more information on “Best of Momentum,” one day events, and more coming soon!
Will I get money back if I’ve already paid something?
Yes, you will receive a refund of any money you’ve paid except for the $25 fee already put in place.
Alternatively, you can elect for the entirety of your money paid to be held for you to attend Momentum 2021.
Should I fill out the cancellation form?
No, you do not need to fill out the cancellation form to get a refund. Our Registrar will be in contact with people who have paid something towards Momentum 2020 to ask if you’d like a refund issued or if you’d like money held for 2021.
