2018 ELCA Youth Gathering

June 27 - July 1, 2018 we will be gathering in Houston for the ELCA Youth Gathering. Every three years, 30,000 high school youth and their adult leaders 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.

"I think for me in both places was this idea of accompaniment lived out. People would ask 'Well why are you here, what are you doing here?' And just the opportunity that that provides to engage in the communities that are welcoming us.”
