We see a world restored by His love, rooted in His word, reflecting His light, released into Motion, and it will all start at MOTION 22! It is our prayer that students leave the conference refreshed, equipped, and inspired to live their lives in MOTION at home, in the local church, in their cities, and around the world.

During our main sessions, we will engage in worship and hear a powerful message from different speakers and artists.


Conference Community Groups are designed to connect and engage students in life-giving relationships and lead them to dig deeper into truths shared during main sessions. Community Groups provide the opportunity for the bigger main sessions to become small and more personal. Through Community Groups, students will be motivated, encouraged, and trained to live their lives in MOTION. Community Groups are divided by age (Middle School, High School, College) and our students will have a Highlands Pastor help facilitate their group time.

Highlands Students Information


Students will be seated with the Highlands Campus with which they registered and will be placed into a Seating Community. Each Seating Community will rotate each day of conference. Being grouped with their Highlands Campus provides an excellent opportunity for your student to get to know their peers and campus leaders.


Boxed meals will be available to purchase as an add-on for $30 when registering for MOTION Conference. If you purchase meals, you will receive a boxed meal for Lunch and Dinner on Friday, July 29 and Lunch on Saturday, July 30. Each boxed meal includes an entree, side, dessert, and water.

Bag Policy

To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite guest entry into the arena, the Legacy Arena at the BJCC implemented a policy recently that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums, and will be scanning every person as they enter the building. We strongly encourage guests to not bring any type of bags, but have outlined what is permissible. Guests will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container on-site at BJCC complex: bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and backpacks that do not exceed 14″ x 14″ x 6″ or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc or similar).

Out-of-town Campuses

All-Inclusive Package

This is available for purchase for students who are traveling from out-of-town campuses. This package includes transportation, lodging, meals and registration. The cost of this package is an additional $150.00 to your registration. From the time your student leaves to the time they return, all meals will be provided. You may want to send additional spending money for your student for any extra snacks they may desire to purchase on their own. Lodging will be provided at a hotel in close proximity to the BJCC. Our campus leaders will accompany students at all times. Campuses will have reserved seating together in the Highlands Students section of the Arena. This provides an excellent opportunity for your student to get to know their peers and campus leaders.

Without All-Inclusive Package

There are two options for transportation: You can use a personal vehicle or take advantage of the Highlands Students Drop-Off/ Pick-Up (more details under Highlands Students Information).

In-town Campuses

Registration does not include transportation, or lodging. See recommended options below.


In addition to the two options under Highlands Students Information, there is a campus shuttle option. Shuttles to and from the BJCC will be made available daily from the some campuses. Simply drop off your student in the morning at the campus near you, and pick them up that evening at the same campus. A shuttle schedule will be posted online. The cost for the shuttle is $40 per person for all 3 days of conference. You can purchase the shuttle package with your registration.

College / ONE

We will have a special experience for college students at MOTION 2022. See below for some of the exciting plans.

College Hotel Block

For college-aged students specifically, we have rooms reserved at Hilton Birmingham at UAB for MOTION Conference attendees. This is a great option instead of the All-Inclusive Package if you will be providing your own transportation to conference, but still would like to stay with others in our room block. Book your stay with a group of friends using this link: College Hotel Reservation Link.

Register with Friends and Save

Register 6 or more students for MOTION 2022 and a $5 discount will be automatically applied to each registration in your cart.

College Community Groups

College Community Groups are always a highlight of MOTION Conference. This year, we’re mixing it up and not only giving you the chance to meet new friends and dive deeper into what God’s speaking to you, but we’re also bringing in some of our guest speakers to hit the topics that matter to you most.


The Dream Team is a massive part of making Motion Conference a success each year, and we invite all Church of the Highlands Dream Team members to be a part of an impactful weekend by serving. Connect with the Student Director at your campus for more information.

We are so excited to offer our middle school parents a special ticket this year to join us at MOTION Conference 2022!

We understand that coming to conference for the first time can seem a little intimidating for a younger student. We hope that this opportunity to be in the room with them will bring both you and the student some comfort as you navigate MOTION Conference of the first time.
