“Momentum 23 was an unforgettable experience, with inspiring speakers and soul-stirring music. This year was slightly different for me as God has encouraged me to be okay with being invisible. After all, it’s not about me; it’s all about introducing people to Him. Embracing invisibility gave me freedom to be more present with people, which led to deeper connections and the most enriching Momentum I’ve ever had.” – Brian Curee Killer Bee Marketing

Plus, speakers like Lisa Harper and Carey Nuieuwhof filled my tank. There was a great balance between, leadership, industry and inspiration. Well done CMB.” – Rob Dempsey HIS Radio


“It was my first time at momentum, and I was so impressed with the entire event. It was seamless, informative, exciting, energetics, and a great way to make connections.

Looking forward to next year!!” – Geoff Moore Christian FM

“Momentum is always the highlight of my year. Making new friends, and catching up with old ones. I have Momentum to thank for my wonderful friendship with Josh and Yvonne Jones from Your Q FM that began last year. All the tools I obtained from this experience I can take with me and start to implement into my job when I get back. Thank you CMB for another great year!” –  Dawn Miller WPOS Holland, OH
