The ELCA Youth Gathering is about faith formation, worship, study, fellowship, service and play. It is an opportunity for youth to engage in worship and fellowship with peers from across the United States and the world who share a common commitment and faith in Christ. Many ELCA congregations see their participation in the ministry of the ELCA Youth Gathering as one aspect of their work to fulfill the promise they made around the baptismal font to raise faithful young people who:
- Live among God’s faithful people,
- Hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s supper,
- Proclaim the good news of God in Christ through their words and actions,
- Serve and love our neighbors, following the example of Jesus, and
- Pursue justice and peace in the world.
