Back to New Orleans

The ELCA Youth Gathering will return to New Orleans in 2012 under the theme "Citizens With the Saints," from Ephesians 2:14-20 (the reading for the final day of the gathering).

"But the destination, New Orleans, is not the ultimate focus," said Heidi Hagstrom, director. "We're shaping a service learning experience that will affirm young people's welcome into God's story through baptism, help them draw closer to God by engaging in intentional faith practices, train them to bear witness to Jesus' activity for the sake of the world, and arouse in them their vocational call to serve."
