July 11-15, 2019, Minneapolis, MN

What is “The Gathering”

Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth 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 five days of the Gathering, youth spend time together in God’s word, worship, service, and fellowship with others from across the synod.

Who can go?

Students must be entering 9th grade in Fall 2019

While we allow students as old as 20 to attend, it is recommended that students who are 19 and older, one year out of high school, or have been to at least one previous Gathering apply to be a Young Adult Volunteer (YAV). For more details about applying to be a YAV, contact Mr. Gong (

What is the theme?

Real.Present.God: Psalm 46: Real life is broken and messy, but because Jesus is real, I can be real amidst the brokenness. God is present in His Word and through His people. And because of this, God’s presence is our refuge and strength, no matter what. God is all powerful, all personal, and this God is present for us in Jesus and his life, death and resurrection.

How much does this cost?

Total cost will be between $1300-$1900 per person (subject to change). This is covered by a family deposit, CCL support, and fundraising throughout the year. 


Upon registration, students will be expected to pay a non-refundable deposit. As a team, we will meet monthly in the fall, and twice monthly in the spring leading up to the event. It is expected that team members attend a majority of these meetings. In addition, we will fundraise throughout the school year. Participation in fundraising is expected in order to benefit from the events.

How do I sign-up?
