There is NO insurance coverage provided for Montana Youth Convention. You will need to take care of that on your own either with a church group policy or verification of individual personal coverage.

YOUTH LEADERS: please bring a check from your church for the amount of your Speed The Light monies raised thus far. A special offering will be taken during the Speed The Light emphasis service. Please include your check in this offering.

It’s a great idea to hold a group fundraiser to go to Montana Youth Convention. This takes the financial load off parents – especially those with more than one teen in the group. There are very likely individuals in your congregation who would gladly sponsor a student in the group to go. They are just waiting to be asked! Ask the church to sponsor the leaders/chaperones.

It is absolutely imperative that you have a permission form and medical release whenever you take young people to various events, etc. If you do not already have one you use, we have provided a sample in this packet. Please feel free to copy it to give to each young person attending the convention. You may want to modify or change it to fit your own youth group’s needs. You will need to keep these records with you.

*Pastors, chaperones, parents and students should all review these policies prior to attendance at the Convention.

  • It is recommended that there be an adult chaperone for every seven students registered.
  • Due to the size of our crowd, “saving seats” at the church is not allowed for any gathering or activity.
  • Government Statement: No weapons, fireworks, tobacco products, alcohol, illegal drugs, or profanity will be allowed at any time. We reserve the right of the convention staff/security to inspect the contents of any suspicious personal belongings and to withhold and/or dispose of any improper or illegal contents. The participation of the young person at the convention indicates their acknowledgment of this right.
  • The Montana Ministry Network cannot be held responsible for the conduct, safety, etc., of your youth group. Be aware of the whereabouts of your teens at all times. Your level of responsibility is an example to your teens
