Registration & Special Promotional Offers
All convention registrations are non-refundable. Leaders are charged the same admission cost as students. We do not offer a discounted registration for those attending a portion of the convention. Early registration pricing and pre-ordering Momentum T-shirts are only applicable to registrations that are PAID IN FULL AND SUBMITTED ON OR BEFORE OCTOBER 6, 2017. Please DO NOT send cash or Personal Checks. We accept money orders, cashier checks or church check payment for registration monies due. Outstanding payments must be received prior to or upon arrival. We cannot make exceptions to these registration policies.
We allow the Senior Pastor (and spouse) of your church to attend Momentum free of charge. This special dispensation cannot be transferred to any other attendee from your group.
We offer a special scholarship for students qualifying under the Integrity Principle. The Integrity Principle allows students in your youth ministry to invite their unsaved friends to Convention for free. Students qualifying under the Integrity Principle must be an unsaved young person and cannot simply be an infrequent attendee of your church and/or youth ministry. He/she cannot be someone who has previously attended convention. The individual names and addresses of Integrity Principle students must be recorded in the form provided after online registration is completed, and the bottom must be signed by both the Senior Pastor and Youth Pastor/Leader of the church to qualify for this scholarship.
We offer a special discount for churches registering large groups of students. For every TEN paying STUDENTS, we will allow you to bring ONE LEADER for free. This special pricing can only be honored for early registrations postmarked on or before OCTOBER 6, 2017. Leader discount cannot be transferred to any student registration. Integrity students and/or paying leaders do not count toward the ten-paying-student quota.
Reserved arena seating is only applicable to groups pre-registering 25 or more for Momentum by October 6, 2017 postmark deadline and are only valid for Momentum general sessions. Groups will be notified of their assignment on the day of registration. There will be no changes to the seating assignment without forfeiting reserved privileges. Reserved seating will not include seats on the arena floor which will remain available to any other registering group on a first-come, first served basis for the duration of the convention. Please let us know if you or anyone from your group has any special disabilities for seating purposes (wheel chair accessibility, hearing impaired, etc..).
Hotels & Convention Center
No youth group will be permitted to attend without adequate supervision. We ask that you bring one adult for every room of teenagers that will be staying in an area hotel. ISM will assume NO responsibility for the supervision of students in hotels.
We expect that all students and leaders honor a 12AM curfew, and be in their hotel rooms with lights out by 12:15 AM to honor other hotel and area guests. Each church is responsible to ISM, and their hotel in contract for the behavior of their students and leaders.
Individuals and churches will be responsible to pay for any damages to hotel or convention center. Churches are responsible to make their own reservations with the hotel of their choice and follow any policies as outlined by that hotel. In the event of any on-site cancellations or changes, any and all applicable penalties will apply.
Hanging out of or throwing items from hotel windows or upper levels of the convention center will not be tolerated. No fireworks, smoking, alcoholic beverages, drugs, knives, weapons of any kind, or profanity is allowed. Violators will be immediately removed from the event at their own expense.
All staff memebers are authorized to maintain order at any location hosting Momentum for the duration of the convention. We reserve the right to inspect the contents of all personal belongings. The holding and/or disposal of improper contents is the right of the Convention Staff.
Wristbands and registration ID’s (where applicable) must be worn at all times.
Attendance at ALL Momentum activities is required. Loitering in the lobby and/or other areas not reserved and in use by our event is prohibited. We do not allow guys and girls to be in the same hotel room, or any other unsupervised location, under any circumstance. No public display of affection (PDA) is allowed.
