The LCMS Youth Gathering (Gathering) provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity. During the 5 days of the Gathering, youth spend time together in God’s Word, worship, service, and fellowship with others from across the synod. This event is organized by LCMS Youth Ministry in Saint Louis, MO. The next LCMS Youth Gathering will be July 19–23, 2025 in New Orleans, LA.
The theme for the 2025 LCMS Youth Gathering is “ENDURE” and is centered around Hebrews 12:1–3.
The Gathering office has been very busy planning for the 2025 event. There is already a tremendous amount of information on the Gathering website for Adult Leaders, Volunteers, Participants, and their families.
