What is the National Youth Gathering?

Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity
to come together as a community of God’s people to be encouraged in their walk with Jesus Christ and learn
about the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity.

The Gathering is more than the five days of the event. The preparation process for the Gathering brings together young people and supportive adults to encourage each other in their baptismal identity. The Gathering provides young people a vision for the vastness of Christ’s Church and equips them for vocational service as they continue their walk with Jesus.

This event is organized by LCMS Youth Ministry in Saint Louis, MO.
