WHO

MOTION Conference is planned and purposed around Junior High, High School, and College Students from Church of the Highlands.

Middle School (6th-8th Grade)

High School (9th-12th Grade)

College (Ages 18-22)

Incoming 6th grade students are welcome to attend, but it is up to the parent’s discretion as to decide whether or not you feel your student is prepared to be a part of the event.


WHAT TO EXPECT

MAIN SESSIONS

At MOTION you will have the opportunity to participate in powerful worship sessions with thousands of other students- lead by the Highlands Worship team and special guests. During each session you will not only be refreshed in worship, but you will also be inspired by Biblical messages from some of today’s top communicators. There is nothing like the Main Sessions at MOTION Conference!

COMMUNITY GROUPS

MOTION Conference Community Groups are designed to connect and engage students in life-giving relationships and lead them to dig deeper into the 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 (Junior High, High School, College) and are facilitated by a Community Group leader and an incredible pastor from the Church of the Highlands team. Community Groups are also staffed with trained facilitators from the MOTION Dream Team.
