A hallmark of youth ministry in the ELCA and the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin is the 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.
An important part of the Gathering’s ministry are the two pre-events, the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (MYLE), a faith formation and leadership development event primarily for youth of color, and the tAble, a gathering that gathers, blesses and empowers youth with disabilities.
The 2021 ELCA Youth Gathering will take place June 29-July 3, 2021 in Minneapolis, MN. Visit our synod Youth Gathering page to learn more at https://scsw-elca.org/elcayg2021/.
