ELCA Youth Gathering

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 their faith in their daily lives.

The 2024 ELCA Youth Gathering will be held July 16-20, 2024, in New Orleans, with the two pre-events, the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (MYLE) and the tAble, scheduled to take place immediately before on July 13-16.
