ELCA National Youth Gathering

Every three years, 30,000 high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gather for a week of faith formation known as the ELCA Youth Gathering. Through days spent in interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service and fellowship, young people grow in faith and are challenged and inspired to live their faith in their daily lives.

Congregations from the Northern Great Lakes Synod are already planning for the 2022 Gathering. If you are interested in attending an upcoming National Youth Gathering, please contact your pastor or email youthcoordinator@nglsynod.org to get connected to a local congregation.
