Contact TJ Helgren for additional information.



Be sure to keep June 26th to July 1st open for the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering. This youth gathering is a once in a lifetime experience. 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 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.

If you are looking to grow your faith and experience a gathering like none other, this is what you want. Experience what it is like to serve with over 30,000 other ELCA Christians, experience a fellowship day like no other as we grow closer with others, then grow in worship as we listen to some of the best speakers and singers that the nation has to offer. When the day is done and we return back to the hotel, enjoy fellowship time getting to know other youth from around the country. This is an amazing opportunity for you to grow deeper in your faith and bring the lessons we learned back to serve our community.
