Update regarding MYLE & the tAble


It’s with great excitement that we announce the registration fees for the first 1,000 registrants for the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (MYLE) and the first 200 registrants for the tAble will be waived by the Gathering for the 2024 cycle.

“As crucial parts of the ministry of the Gathering, we are thrilled to be able to support MYLE and the tAble in this way. Our hope is that more young people will get to experience these important ministries which we know creates a lifelong impact. We’re thankful to a generous donor that makes this opportunity possible for the young people of this church.” -Deacon Tammy Jones West, 2024 Gathering Director

More details will be added and/or updated on our website in the coming weeks.


What is the ELCA Youth Gathering?

Every three years, thousands of high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gather for a week of faith formation and fellowship known as the ELCA Youth Gathering. Through inspiring speakers, conversations with partners, Bible study and being immersed in the host city, young people will be inspired, challenged and called to live out their faith in their daily lives. Additionally, young people will have opportunities to explore their vocation and discern where they are being called into this world.

An essential part of the ministry of the Gathering is the two pre-events, the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (MYLE) and the tAble. MYLE is a faith formation and leadership development event primarily for youth of color or whose primary language is not English. The tAble brings together, blesses and empowers youth living with a wide range of physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities.

The ministry of the Gathering is dreamed, planned and executed by Gathering leadership, which consists of nearly 98% volunteers and a small full-time staff out of the ELCA churchwide organization. See who is behind the scenes planning the 2024 Gathering, the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event and the tAble.
