2022 ELCA National Youth Gathering
Sunday, July 24 – Friday, July 28
For youth in grades 8-12 (2021-22)
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.
The 2022 National Youth Gathering is right here in OUR city, Minneapolis! We will be staying in a hotel downtown and our main sites for gathering are the Minneapolis Convention Center and US Bank Stadium. Check out more information here: www.elca.org/YouthGathering.
Sign up if interested in receiving reminders and more information. In order to formally register, you must turn in a non-refundable deposit of $150 and a signed NYG agreement.
Cost is: $750.00/person (plus a commitment for each participant to participate in fundraising. If participation in fundraising is not fulfilled, there is an additional $250.00 that will be due to cover the additional costs.)
Deadline to register: Sunday, October 3 (sign up is completed by turning in $150 non-refundable deposit and an NYG agreement)
High school graduates ages 18+ are invited to attend as volunteers at the event. For more information on volunteering, contact Leisha Tays, CYF Innovator, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adult participants (21+) will be needed and contacted as needed. Please sign up if interested in being an adult participant. Adults costs are covered by Our Saviour’s. Adults must have a cleared background check and be an active member of the ELCA.
