Nashville Momentum Summits 2017

The 2017 Nashville Momentum Summits are in the history books as CMB’s highest attended Momentum Summits to date. Thanks to everyone who joined us! Stay tuned for more info on our upcoming Chicago Momentum Summits in April, where we will dive into On-Air & Production topics!

    “As an audience engagement specialist and member of our station’s leadership team, it’s important for me to be up to date on all aspects of our Media Ministry, including current trends and tried and true approaches that never get old. That’s why I was so excited about attending the Programming and Millennial Summits. The inspiration was endless! Speakers provided me with insights and knowledge that I couldn’t have gained anywhere else! I can’t wait to share my pages and pages of notes with my radio team and see where God takes us!  And I can’t forget about all of the opportunities to connect with the best in this business. THIS is PRICELESS!” Marianne Milano, KTIS

    “The level of content of the speakers at the Nashville Momentum Summits was fantastic. Getting a look behind the scenes at song writing, from the songwriter panel was my favorite part. And I really enjoyed the performances. Steven Curtis Chapman, Chris Tomlin, Matt Maher, Stars Go Dim, Carrollton, David Dunn, and newcomers like Iron Bell and Jasmine Murray…can’t beat it!” Kenny Robinson, The Journey FM

    “The Nashville Momentum Summit was a great gathering of talented people and fresh ideas! Everything ran smoothly from start to finish. I would highly recommend catching one of these any time you are ready to collaborate with some new people!” Barbara Bridges, Mix 92.9

    “It was a pleasure to speak at the CMB Nashville Summit about inspiring our current millennial generation. It was refreshing to see how many people are eager to continue to grow themselves and their stations. I’m thankful for the CMB team and their hard work to bring valuable education to our industry” BJ O’Neal, WAY-FM

    ”I’ve been to Momentum for years, but this was my first CMB Summit event. It made me wish I would have started doing this years ago! Speakers are on-par with Momentum, but the Summit lets you dig deeper into their specific themes. Definitely worth it.” Matt Pelishek, KAXL

    “CMB Summit was not only valuable to my programming skills, but the speakers gave fresh insight about the next generation of listeners” Howie Nunnelly, 105.3 New Life Radio

    “The CMB Summit was the ideal setting to share our message with Christian radio leaders. The CMB staff was amazing to work with and went above and beyond to integrate our ministry into the event. Highly recommend.” Paul Goldsmith, CURE

    “Thanks to CMB for inviting me to share some concepts that can help Christian radio stations create more passionate and loyal fans. Our time in Nashville was packed with great music, new insights and perspectives, and brainstorming. I recommend upcoming CMB regional summits to anyone who wants to improve their skills.” John Frost, Good Ratings

    “To see the passion that the attendees and the speakers at the CMB Momentum Summit had was truly inspiring. Not only their passion for their faith, but more significantly, their passion for doing great radio in a meaningful and effective manner that speaks to everyone and helps change the perceptions many people have of what Christian radio is.” Michael La Crosse, iHeartMedia

    “I’m grateful for CMB’s vision to help equip today’s Christian music stations to expand their reach and influence… and I’m grateful to have been a small part of that.” Rick Dunham, Dunham+Company & ShareMedia

    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.
