What is the 2019 National Youth Gathering?
“Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering (NYG) provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to learn more about Jesus Christ…During the five days of the NYG, youth spend time together in God’s word, worship, service and fellowship.”
Date and Location
The next Gathering will be held on July 11-15, 2019 in Minneapolis, MN at US Bank Stadium and the Minneapolis Convention Center. Our trip will depart on Tuesday, July 9 and return Monday, July 15, 2019.
Who Can Attend?
High school students who have completed their first year in high school. This also includes high school students who graduated in the Spring of 2019.

Adults over the age of 25 years old are needed to serve as trip leaders/chaperones and drivers for the week.


All students who register are also committing themselves to fully participate in any fundraisers, team meetings, and IMPACT on Sunday nights throughout the coming year. Group building BEFORE the gathering is an important part of the journey, so it is important that we meet to prepare ourselves for what God will do in us through this experience.

Cost and Registration

Many of the costs associated with this trip, including event registration, airfare, and hotel lodging, will be covered by various fundraisers. However, each students is expected to pay a $100 deposit at the time of registration. They will be expected to pay the remainder of the registration fee ($300) in Spring 2019.  NYG participants will also have meal expenses during the week of the gathering.
