Momentum Youth Conference 2016 Highlight Video

I Am Chosen: After Momentum 2016 

This year, Momentum Youth Conference, a national conference sponsored by CE National, was held the last week of July at the Cedarville University campus in Cedarville, Ohio. This year's challenge was to see one's identity as defined by God alone, (I AM CHOSEN). During the event and in the following weeks, stories came pouring in through their FacebookTwitter and Instagram feeds of how God had worked in students' hearts, changing from the inside out. Click the video above to watch a recap of the life-changing week for over 2,000 young people this summer. 

Also, check out out other highlight videos, one by Western Reserve Grace Church's youth group here, and another by student vlogger Miss Lauren Elise here. Scroll through stories, quotes, and pictures on social media using hashtags #momentum2016 and #bestweekofsummer. Browse through GraceConnect's coverage of the event here.
