National Youth Gathering

Youth (aging from incoming High School Freshman in 2019 through Graduating Seniors) and adults from across the Synod will come together July 11-15, 2019, in Minneapolis for the next LCMS Youth Gathering under the theme “Real. Present. God.” 

The theme isrooted in Psalm 46. “Through the gift of faith, we know our God to be real and present with us in daily troubles, fears and joys,” said the Rev. Mark Kiessling, director of LCMS Youth Ministry. We encourage you and your family to sign up for this amazing weeklong trip to Minneapolis where our youth will serve the community, worship the Lord with over 20,000 of their peers, and grow in their faith with one another! This trip costs just under $1300 per person, but with our fundraising goals the cost will seriously drop. Come join your friends and make new ones along the way!!!
