The ELCA Youth and Young Adult Convocations lift up the voices of youth 15 to 18 years old and young adults 19 to 30 years old. The youth convo takes place today through Thursday; the young adult event from Thursday through Sunday.
The convos provide leadership development for ELCA youth and young adults and create an awareness for the synods of up-and-coming leadership. Youth will participate in some of the the assembly plenary sessions and will have their own activities.
Each convo spends a significant amount of time worshiping and praying together. Both convos will report to the assembly to make their voices known as present and future church leaders.
The groups will meet in the New York/New Orleans ballrooms.
