About Houston

People might know it as Beyoncé’s hometown, others as the world hub of the energy industry, some for its prominence as the flight control center for all of NASA’s manned space missions, but we know it best as the host city for the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering! We also know Houston to be a diverse, multicultural metropolis with thriving performing arts and culinary scenes, over 55,000 acres of green space, large and growing international community, and so much more.
