MOTION is an annual student conference in Birmingham, Alabama hosted by Church of the Highlands. Thousands of Jr High, High School, and College students from all over the country come together every year from all over the country for these impactful 3 days!

It was founded on the belief that our faith is not meant to be idle, hidden, or contained but instead lived out in MOTION in Christ. We desire to see this generation empowered by Jesus, equipped to make a difference, and living out their faith every day.

MOTION is now in its 11th year as a conference and God is doing amazing things! Each year students and youth leaders leave the conference refreshed, equipped, and inspired to live their lives in MOTION at home, in the local church, in their cities, and around the world.



At MOTION you will have the opportunity to participate in powerful worship sessions with thousands of other students- lead by the Highlands Worship team and special guests. During each session you will not only be refreshed in worship, but you will also be inspired by Biblical messages from some of today’s top communicators. There is nothing like the Main Sessions at MOTION Conference!


MOTION Conference Community Groups are designed to connect and engage students in life-giving relationships and lead them to dig deeper into the truths shared during main sessions. Community Groups provide the opportunity for the bigger main sessions to become small and more personal. Through Community Groups, students will be motivated, encouraged, and trained to live their lives in MOTION.

Community Groups are divided by age (Junior High, High School, College) and are facilitated by a Community Group leader and an incredible pastor from the Church of the Highlands team. Community Groups are also staffed with trained facilitators from the MOTION Dream Team.



TC Students is proud to be a part of this incredible conference each year! MOTION 2019 will take place July 23th-25th. This incredible event will host some of the top worship leaders, artists, and speakers from around the world! This is an event that you don’t want your student to miss out on!
