ELCA Youth Gathering


What is the Youth Gathering?
– Every three years Lutheran youth from around the world gather in one city for worship, learning, entertainment, fellowship, and community engagement. It is a uniquely powerful experience for High School-age youth and will impact their lives in a positive way.

When is the Youth Gathering?
– Official dates are June 27 through July 1 (transportation will affect these dates by one or two days on either end)

Where is the Youth Gathering?
– Houston, Texas...yes, Texas in the middle of summer!

Who can attend? 
– Any student enrolled in 8th through 12th grade in the Fall of 2017. A couple adult leaders will also be selected to attend.

How much does this cost?
– We don't know the official total until we receive our hotel assignment and figure out how we are getting to Houston. We will host a number of fundraising initiatives in order to lower the total cost per participant. A non-refundable $150 deposit is required to register. Individual financial aid packages are available as needed.
