posted Sep 1, 2015, 7:00 AM by Beautiful Savior   [ updated Jun 17, 2019, 7:02 AM ]

In just a few weeks, thousands of LCMS youth and adults from across the country and around the world will gather in Minneapolis for the 2019 LCMS Youth Gathering, July 11–15.

Organized by LCMS Youth Ministry and held every three years, the Gathering provides attendees with the opportunity to worship, serve, spend time in God’s Word and enjoy fellowship with other LCMS youth and adults.

If you can’t attend the Gathering, you can still follow along and participate through these online channels:

  • The Gathering website will host livestreams of mass events and worship services, as well as blog posts, photos and videos from day to day. Visit to stay up to date and find more information about the schedule, events and speakers, as well as resources for adult leaders.
  • The Gathering app is available to download in the Apple Store and Google Play Store. Although the app is primarily for attendees, it can be used to learn more about Gathering speakers.
  • Youth Gathering social media will share exclusive content featuring highlights from the Gathering. Follow the Gathering on Facebook(@lcmsnyg), Instagram (@lcmsnyg), Twitter (@lcmsnyg) and Snapchat (@lcmsnyg) to get connected, and use the hashtag #NYG2019 to join the conversation. LCMS social media channels will also cover the event on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @TheLCMS.
  • Bible studies based on the theme of the Gathering, “Real. Present. God.”, are available on the Gathering website. Visit to delve deeper into this theme along with the youth.
  • If you can’t attend or follow along in any of the above ways, you can still pray for the youth during the week, that they might be strengthened through worship, fellowship and God’s Word.

If you would like to make a gift to the Gathering offering, send a check to LCMS Youth Ministry, 1333 S. Kirkwood Road, St. Louis, MO 63122-7295, with “Gathering offering” in the memo line. The Gathering offering will go to support the Gathering servant events as well as other youth and local ministries.

“This trip meant getting closer to God while being surrounded by friends with the same goal. Helping fix houses under God's name was an amazing experience and I'm so glad that I was able to do it with people who have the same goal in mind. This trip helped me connect to God in ways I didn't know I could"   - Spencer Mauk 


  • “This trip to me was an opportunity to help people who loved where they lived, and had almost everything taken away from them. I worked in the construction division and got see what houses down in the everglades looked like. These houses were small trailer homes that were torn to pieces by Irma. Yet, everyone who I met that had so much taken away from them still held strong to their faith and still loved where they lived. This trip meant a lot to me because I got to help people who truly were devastated by Irma and see their joy and thankfulness after we came to help.”  - John Proctor   


“This trip was a wonderful experience for me getting to see what hard work the youth of Beautiful Savior can do for those who needed it. The devastation in  Copeland and Everglades City was so hard to see but the youth brought hope to the people there and that is what that trip is all about. It is such a honor to be a part of this trip and bringing God’s hope to the people through something as simple as painting a home.”  - DFM Amanda Bell
