About


what is motion

MOTION is founded on the belief that our faith is not meant to be idle, hidden, or contained but instead lived out in MOTION in Christ!

In 2009, God laid a vision on the heart of our local church student ministry team to bring youth groups and their leaders together from all over the southeast for one weekend. The vision for the weekend was simply this: worship, prayer, and focused teaching on one thing- this generation putting their faith into MOTION. Based on the truth of Ephesians 2:10, it is our desire to see students' lives transformed by the presence of God and doing the good works He planned for them long ago.

MOTION is more than a conference. It’s more than bands and speakers. MOTION is about a generation empowered by Jesus, equipped to make a difference, and living out their faith every day!


MOTION 2021

MOTION 2021 will be designed as three days with powerful sessions and leadership content, opportunities to connect with other students based on your local guidelines, and a day to serve your cities.

Now in its thirteenth year, God is doing something new.. Imagine thousands of young people converging over one weekend to worship Jesus, join in community, and learn how to live out their faith in MOTION. It is going to be powerful! We know our schools, homes, churches, and cities will never be the same.

There has never been a better time to join the movement!

A generation in MOTION.

CONFERENCE CAUSE

The local church is the hope of the world, and we believe that this generation has a significant part to play in helping see the Gospel reach the nations through church planting. At MOTION 2021, we will have the opportunity to give towards current and future church planters- those who have a dream to reach a city for Jesus. More details will be announced soon, but we would love you to start praying about how you can participate.
