Held every three years, LCMS Youth Gatherings provide young people an opportunity to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity. During the five-days of the Gathering youth spend time together in worship, God’s Word, prayer, song and service. This event is organized by LCMS Youth Ministry in Saint Louis, Missouri.

The next event is July 16-20, 2016, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Please keep the Gathering in your prayers as planners begin preparing for New Orleans in January 2014.
