Practice Discipleship

Practice Discipleship is an initiative born out of the 2012 ELCA Youth Gathering in New Orleans. Leaders from all over the world came together to share their passions for growing youth and adult leaders asking for the resources. This is our answer, Practice Discipleship: leadership development for the sake of faith formation. Since that time, the ELCA has had over 30,000 participants from all over the world participate in training opportunities to equip and resource leaders in the community for creative faith formation practices for our children, youth, and families.
