NEW THIS YEAR!

There are two host hotel options adjacent to the Royal Pacific Convention Center in the Meeting Complex. Both have discounted room rates in the Christian Music Broadcasters block and are a short walk to the Convention Center. This year CMB does not have a room block at the Royal Pacific Resort due to inventory and costs.

Impossible. To some, it is just a word. To others, the reality is all too fresh. Embracing the impossible takes commitment, courage, and sacrifice. It allows God the opportunity to grow us and our dependency on Him. What is your impossible? At Momentum 2020 we will come together and experience what happens when we capture the possible out of impossible.

"Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of — infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes." Ephesians 3:20

Momentum sets the standard of excellence for a conference. I speak all over the world, and Momentum is by far one of the best organized and produced.

VP/General Manager, Jacobs Media
Momentum is the premier event for Christian music broadcasters to make meaningful connections and head home ready to implement all you’ve learned.  The result? Watch your station grow internally and in your community! Find a way to be at Momentum so you don’t miss out.

Dave St. John

However, we believe that their participation will strengthen CMB’s overall mission and Kingdom objectives.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:
