MOTION Student Conference
The Motion Student Conference is a catalyst weekend for students to be empowered by Jesus to put their faith into motion. Strategically scheduled at the end of the summer, it is the perfect opportunity for students to be inspired, encouraged, and equipped to start the school year strong for Jesus.
We see a world full of opportunity, created with purpose, redeemed by the love of Jesus, living in MOTION, and will 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.
Everyone, everywhere - come join us back in the Arena at MOTION 22!
WHAT TO EXPECT
During our main sessions, we will engage in worship and hear a powerful message from different speakers and artists.
COMMUNITY GROUPS at MOTION
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.

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).
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.
