Held every three years since 1980, the LCMS Youth 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.
In 2019 the Gathering will be held at the Minneapolis Convention Center. How blessed are we that it is in our own backyard.
Youth ages 14 at the time of the Gathering or going into 9th grade can attend the Gathering.
