In July 2015, nine youth and four youth group leaders from St. Paul piled into two vans and headed north to Michigan for the ELCA Youth Gathering. This was a week filled with interactive learning, worship, service, and fellowship with 30,000 other youth from around the world. Our youth learned so much about themselves and their faith during this trip!
"The Youth Gathering was something I was always unsure of in terms of going. However, the road trip, the welcoming in the stadium, the sheer true presence of God, the friendship that was created, all of it persuaded me to continue throughout the week. I discovered things about my faith and myself that I never knew. It was one of the best and most fortifying experiences I could've gone through with my belief!" -Jason K.
