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 out their faith in their daily lives.
The ELCA Youth Gathering team recently announced the theme of the 2021 Gathering, "boundless: God beyond measure," based on Ephesians 3:19. The Gathering will take place in Minneapolis, MN June 29-July 3, 2021
