The ELCA Youth Gathering is for high school-age youth (those currently in 8th-12th grades) and takes place every three years. It’s about faith formation, worship, fellowship, service and play.
The Gathering is a wonderful an opportunity for youth to engage in worship and fellowship with peers from across the United States and the world who share a common commitment and faith in Christ. The next Youth Gathering will be held in Minneapolis, MN.
