2024 elca youth gathering

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 dates for the 2024 ELCA Youth Gathering and Young Adult Gathering will be July 16-20, 2024
in New Orleans, LA.

Two pre-events, the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (MYLE) and the tAble, are scheduled for
July 13-16 2024.
