Who Should Attend?

Students in 8th grade or 14 yrs old through 12th grade or 18 years old. These should be the students who are currently leaders in your youth or congregational ministry or who show an interest in serving as a leader in your congregational setting or in their community.You know best who your leaders are! Consider sending both younger and older students.

$40 per person (youth or adult) to attend (includes programming, on campus meals and a t-shirt)

Each church or school group attending will receive 1 free adult registration. Registration opens in July 2019 and is open through October 11 through the Oklahoma District. Contact DCE Suzanne Watt with questions at suzanne.watt@ctrtulsa.org 

We Went To Send 1 or 2 Students, But...

If you have just a few students wanting to attend and are not able to send an adult with them, team up with another local congregation or other district congregation. Please make sure to identify who from the other congregation will be the responsible party for your youth. A parent and student could also come on their own and consider this a college visit (one free adult registration will still be honored per family group). District schools are also welcome to send students. 

What Will We Do?

Participate in a local service project and receive service hour credit. Attend sessions on leadership topics led by speakers invited by CUNE as well as University faculty, staff and students. Different sessions available for parents to attend on topics relevant to them such as College 101 and Understanding Financial Aid. See and tour campus as well as have the opportunity to attend a class. Receive a certificate of documentation of your service hours as well as a certificate of completion for private scholarship applications.

Mark your calendars now for the 2022 LCMS National Youth Gathering!

What is the LCMS Youth Gathering?
Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering (Gathering) provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people 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 God’s word, worship, service and fellowship with others from across the synod. This event is organized by LCMS Youth Ministry in Saint Louis, MO.
When and where is the next gathering?
The next LCMS Youth Gathering will be in 2022 in Houston, TX. Registration will open in 2021.
