CMB’s mission is to encourage, engage and equip our members to impact their communities for Christ. That is why it was never an option to cancel Momentum 2020 but to restructure it in a way that accomplishes our mission. We are here to support and encourage YOU. Out of this passion birthed a new concept, virtual Momentum 2020.

Thank you those those who joined us for Momentum 2020 and for trusted us. You took a chance not knowing what a virtual conference would look like. We did everything in our power and through much prayer, to deliver you a unique and memorable experience. We’ve heard from many of you who came to Momentum 2020 feeling depleted and left with a renewed purpose.

Pivoting Momentum to a digital experience required a massive amount of teamwork. The CMB team are rock stars! We could not have done it without the help of the CMB Board, the Momentum Leadership Team, table leaders, and so many of you who jumped in to help. We are better together.

Words cannot express how thankful we are to our partnering labels and committed sponsors like Compassion and Convoy of Hope who put their confidence in us as we navigated through the uncharted waters.

While Momentum 2020 was fun, we are counting down the days until Momentum 2021 (mark your calendars now…June 2-4 in Orlando). It’s been too long since we’ve all been under one roof!

Although nothing could take the place of looking into the eyes of my friends face-to-face, what the CMB team created for us in 2020 was nothing short of incredible. We are so fortunate to have an organization like this committed to teaching and encouraging us, making us better broadcasters and people.

I was pleasantly surprised to meet new friends in the networking lounge, whose paths I never crossed in my many years at Momentum. The virtual aspect opened new opportunities for engagement that were truly and uniquely enjoyable.

Momentum was incredible! Dr. Elmore…mind blown! I literally wept on the way home thinking about the impact we can have on Gen Z. Kirk Cousins…shut the front door…encouraged and impressed!!! That virtual networking lounge…woah Nelly! It felt like I was un-grounded and got to go play with my friends….

Morning Show Host & Brand Manager, 88.3 THE WIND
Momentum 2020 was the revival my heart needed. CMB continually exudes excellence, exceptional quality, and passion into all they do, and virtual Momentum exceedingly showcased just that. While attending, and seeing the mission of spreading the hope of the Gospel through Christian radio evidently displayed, I felt God remind me (as He has at every CMB held event), “This is why I have called you to serve Me here.” CMB Momentum reminds us that what we do isn’t just our career, but our calling.

Shannon Farmer

On-Air Personality, Resound Radio
When I found out that Momentum was being moved to a virtual conference, I was quite disappointed. I was really looking forward to speaking and meeting everyone in attendance. However, after experiencing it, I must admit I was blown away with how well everything went. My speaking session went off without any issues and the Q&A session was great. I absolutely loved the Networking Lounge that allowed me to talk to attendees “face-to-face”. I also greatly enjoyed attending the conference and watching other speakers and breakout sessions. Momentum 20 was a home run! CMB’s staff is just awesome! So encouraging, helpful, and fun.

Great speakers delivering relevant content, timely inspirational messages (the power of the pivot), connecting with old friends, making new ones, artist visits and performances, prizes…Momentum 2020 was everything we’ve come to expect thanks to the extraordinary efforts of the CMB team.  The only thing “off” was my step count from all the walking normally done in Florida.

Director Listener Engagement, Star 99.1
CMB displayed such quick thinking and a remarkable ability to pivot in a season of uncertainty. Samaritan Ministries was glad to participate in a virtual conference of this high caliber, which provided many opportunities to still connect and network as a sponsor. Great job!

Amanda Wilton

Samaritan Ministries International
While we can never replace the blessing of having Momentum in person, this virtual experience was far better than anticipated. The CMB Team did an incredible job providing the opportunity to connect with others as well as bringing encouragement and education through all the speakers, breakout sessions, and artist performances. Thank you CMB!

Jocelyn Clarambeau

Compassion International
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this amazing event! This conference was very special for us, and all the love we got from all the participants over these last four days has been heart filling and wonderful. We love Christian Radio!

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:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
