What is the Youth Gathering?
Every three years, thousands of high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gather for a week of faith formation. Through days spent in interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service and fellowship, we will grow in faith and be challenged and inspired to live faith in our daily lives.
