For the moments where the mundane meet the divine. For the messages that move the heart and challenge the mind. It’s an expansion of our focus and expertise for wider impact and greater relevance. Because effectiveness of radio across multiple platforms leads to reaching more people in more places for Jesus. We are all called to serve our communities, we are called to amplify the Gospel, we are called to…MORE PLATFORM.
Momentum Workshops, taking place Wednesday morning (May 31), are designed to offer 2 hours of strategic and compelling education to advance your professional development in your role at your station. There are 6 different workshops to choose from during the registration process and each focuses on a specific area of concentration. Click each topic to learn more!
Music & Programming
Social & Digital
Momentum is the gathering of people you want to hang with. You don’t have to explain what you do—they get it. You show up ready to enjoy each other.
In my four plus decades in broadcasting I’ve attended and helped plan many industry events and conventions; NOTHING compares with Momentum! This is not just a networking event (though relationships are a wonderful byproduct), it is a true educational experience featuring the best of the best to help Christian Music broadcasters grow and develop. Your investment in coming to Momentum has a high ‘stewardship return.’ I look forward to seeing YOU there!
Each time I’ve participated in Momentum, I’ve learned new ways to improve in each area of our ministry, but I’ve also been greatly encouraged personally. Sometimes you need that reminder of why you’re doing this. Between the main sessions, breakouts, and relationships built, you can refocus on your organization’s mission and vision, as well as your personal vision as a staff member in the Christian radio industry. It’s like summer camp for Christian radio professionals!
Momentum was not only a ton of fun but a really fulfilling time. It is so special to connect with others in our industry and learn from one another. I walked away feeling encouraged, educated and excited about what we get to do.
