Press Release For Immediate Release

ELCA Youth Gathering 2018
"This Changes Everything"

In June, more than 260 of our synod youth and their adult leaders attended the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston. Along with over 31,000 other participants, those who attended participated in  5 days of amazing speakers, worship, activities, service opportunities and chances for the youth and adults in our synod to experience our larger church. We give thanks for the ELCA staff, volunteers, youth leaders, pastors and adult volunteers who made this all possible.
