ELCA Youth Gathering June 29-July 3, 2021
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 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.
An important part of the Gathering's ministry are the two pre-events, the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (MYLE), a faith formation and leadership development event primarily for youth of color, and the tAble, a gathering that gathers, blesses and empowers youth with disabilities.
We believe that God calls us all into fellowship with Jesus and with each other. All are welcome at his table, whether we are taking our first steps of faith or have been part of the church family for some time. We want everyone to know God's welcome, whoever they are and at whatever time they are ready.
