National Youth Gathering 2022
Imagine an arena filled with thousands of kids, kids who have gathered from across the country to worship, to serve, to learn, and to experience the grace of Jesus Christ in a powerful way. The LCMS National Youth Gathering (NYG) is where this happens. Students 13.5 to 17 years old are invited to share in this amazing experience.
About 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 be encouraged in their walk with Jesus Christ and learn about the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity.
The Gathering is more than the five days of the event. The preparation process for the Gathering brings together young people and supportive adults to encourage each other in their baptismal identity. The Gathering provides young people a vision for the vastness of Christ’s Church and equips them for vocational service as they continue their walk with Jesus.
