Theme Song

The ELCA Youth Gathering invites people from across our church to submit their original music composition to be considered for the theme song of the Gathering in Minneapolis, Minnesota!

Composers should consider the following:

  1. Theme: “boundless: God beyond measure" based on Ephesians 3:19; "I want you to know all about Christ's love, although it is too wonderful to be measured. Then your lives will be filled with all that God is."
  2. Daily Themes:
    Tuesday: “boundless love,” Ephesians 3:14-21 CEV
    Wednesday: "boundless creation," Psalm 104:1-34 CEV
    Thursday: "boundless forgiveness," Luke 15:11-32 CEV
    Friday: "boundless invitation," Luke 1:26-55 CEV
    Saturday: "boundless promise," John 11:21-27 CEV
  3. Audience: Young people and their congregations from across the ELCA will encounter and sing this song. It should be accessible culturally, musically, and theologically. It should also capture the spirit and energy of the ELCA Youth Gathering ministry.

The grand prize consists of having the opportunity to perform live at the 2021 Gathering, complimentary registration, free lodging and roundtrip airfare to Minneapolis.
