The NE MN Synod Journey
to the
2018 ELCA Youth Gathering

Journey with the NE MN Synod this year to explore what THIS means and how THIS can change everything. 
And then join us  
June 23 - July 2, 2018 
on the NE MN Synod Journey to the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering!
You are Invited to Join the Journey!
The Synod Journey is a synod-wide leadership development and faith formation experience that will explore how "THIS Changes Everything." All congregations in the NE MN Synod and all ages, regardless of their participation on the travel portion of the event, are invited and encouraged to join the Journey this coming year!

Youth in grades 9-12 and their adult leaders are then invited to participate in the Synod Journety to the ELCA Youth Gathering as "amabassadors" from our synod to serve, learn and return to share their story of how " This Changes Everything."

Life and faith. THIS is hard.
Life and faith. THIS is real.
Life and faith. THIS can change everything.

Join us in worship. Join us in Bible study. Join us on the Journey.

How might you be changed this year?
