After much prayer and consideration, we have decided to postpone next summer’s ELCA Youth Gathering to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2022 ELCA Youth Gathering will be held July 24-28, 2022, in Minneapolis, with the two pre-events, the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (MYLE) and the tAble, scheduled for July 21-24, 2022.
We give thanks for your prayers and patience as we have worked through the details with our partners in Minneapolis and across the country. We hope that by postponing the Gathering for a year, individuals and congregations will feel more comfortable and prepared to attend the Gathering in 2022.
We will be updating our website and social media as more details become available.
We look forward to seeing you and experiencing the boundlessness of God in Minneapolis in 2022!
Frequestly asked questions about the postponement of the ELCA Youth Gathering until 2022. If you cannot find an answer to your question, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We understand that this is not the ideal situation and hope that those not able to attend as a youth participant will consider participating as a young adult volunteer, an experience they would likely relate to more. We have been told time and time again that volunteering for the Gathering is just as life changing.
