MOVE: For All, Forever

FCC   -  

The High School MOVE Conference is happening July 12-17!

MOVE is a five-day High School summer event held all over the country, designed to amplify the call of Christ on students’ lives to become Kingdom workers. Students are challenged through intense, interactive worship, dynamic preaching, small group study and community building. MOVE is more than just another conference or camp – it’s an experience!

This experience also gives adult leaders the chance to build relationships with students that will last long after MOVE ends. At MOVE, our students will come to understand their identity in God’s Kingdom, and be challenged to embrace the Kingdom work He has prepared for them.

We will be attending MOVE at Lee University. Located in Cleveland, TN, just outside Chattanooga, Lee University has a campus that cannot be outdone. As soon as you walk onto campus, you get the feeling of the south. Historic brick buildings with towering white pillars and huge shade trees scatter the campus making you feel separated from the town. Although the recreation facilities are not to be outdone by the beautiful landscaping, Lee University offers top of the line indoor and outdoor facilities. From the dorms to large shade trees, no detail has been overlooked.

The early bird price for MOVE this year is $375, if you sign up by May 1. This includes all meals (except lunch on Monday and Breakfast on Friday), transportation, lodging, conference, and a free day activity in Chattanooga. After May 1 the price will be $410. A $65 deposit is due at the time of registration. Registrations deadline is Jun 21.

Here’s a section from this year’s theme:

NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE…

NO MATTER WHERE YOU’RE FROM…

NO MATTER HOW GOOD YOU THINK YOU ARE…

OR HOW BAD…

THE GOSPEL IS STILL FOR YOU.

FOR ALL. FOREVER.

Sign up your high-schooler here! During registration, you will need to fill out a MOVE Medical Form.
