Theme: The 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering & Other High Impact Trips

This annual retreat is a casual opportunity for youth leaders and pastors to gather and affirm the call of youth ministry, reflect on current trends and network with other youth leaders in a beautiful outdoor setting and relaxing adult retreat facility. Synod Gathering Coordinators from each of the three synods will share the most current information available about the 2018 Youth Gathering in Houston and facilitate a best practices discussion from past Gathering experiences and other High Impact trips. Even if you have already attended a Gathering informational meeting in your synod, or you don’t have youth going to the Gathering, we encourage you to come and enjoy time away with other youth leaders to share your ministry experiences and insights and get to know other youth leaders.
