2021 ELCA 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.

In 2018 our synod had 724 high school youth and adult leaders who traveled to Houston under the theme of “This Changes Everything”. Our synod is now planning for our trip to the 2021 ELCA Youth Gathering. The 2021 ELCA Youth Gathering will take place Tuesday, June 29 – Saturday, July 3, 2021 in Minneapolis, MN.
