Due to the cancellation of the 2022 ELCA Youth Gathering, MYLE and tAble, many young people were not able to participate in these life-changing faith formation events. In partnership with ELCA Young Adult Ministries, we are thrilled to open the first-ever ELCA Young Adult Gathering to individuals who will be 18 to 35 at the time of the Gathering. We recognize that 18-35 is a wide age range and anticipate that most of our programming will be geared toward those 18 to 25 years old.
The Young Adult Gathering will take place in New Orleans during the 2024 ELCA Youth Gathering (July 16-20, 2024). Programming and content are still being discerned. Young adult participants are invited to join the ELCA Youth Gathering’s Mass Gathering and closing worship. Follow Gathering communications to learn more and follow ELCA Young Adult Ministries for the latest updates.
The ELCA Young Adult Gathering registration is $260 per person, which will increase to $310 per person on Nov. 2, 2023 and then again to $360 on Feb. 15, 2024. A nonrefundable, per-person deposit of $150 is due at registration and must be paid within the registration rate you expect to pay.
Individuals interested in attending the ELCA Young Adult Gathering will need to register apart from any congregational group attending the ELCA Youth Gathering. Childcare will be available for those attending the ELCA Young Adult Gathering. Please note that children are not allowed to attend Mass Gathering programming.
More information regarding event programming and logistics will be shared in spring 2023.
