LCMS Youth Gathering - July 2022

Gathering Update:

LCMS Youth Gathering Imporant Dates

What is the LCMS Youth Gathering and Why is it a Big Deal? 

The LCMS National Youth Gathering is a 5 day youth convention where 20,000+ youth and adults from around the world gather together to be encouraged in their walk with Jesus. Youth and adults gather to learn, grow, meet new friends, have fun, and serve the Gathering Host City. 

This year’s theme, In All Things, is a reminder that the Christian story encompasses all things. Nothing, and no one, is left out. In baptism, all things in our lives are brought under the gracious rule and reign of Jesus Christ. The story includes all of each of us. Christ is the single “big idea” in Paul’s letter to the Colossians, and He will be the single big idea at the 2022 LCMS Youth Gathering.

Who is the Gathering For: 

  • All students in 8th – 12th Grade during the 2021/2022 school year
