Memories

Lutheran youth from across the United States have been gathering in some form for well over a century. Many adults recall their gathering experience as transformative in the life of their faith, sharing memories of impactful speakers, new relationships, and so much more. The ELCA has continued this rich tradition from its predecessor bodies, and gathered every three years since 1988. Enjoy archival photos, news features, and other memories from past ELCA Youth Gatherings.
