The LCMS Youth Ministry research data will be presented with facilitated discussions on current positive ministry taking place among LCMS young adults and the need for future ministry resources, engagement, and study.
The research conducted includes the direct feedback from 200 LCMS congregations and more than 1,800 young adults who have been or are connected to the LCMS.
Their insights are powerful, and anyone connected to or interested in youth and young adult ministry are encouraged to attend, including pastors, youth workers (commissioned and lay workers; professional and volunteers).
Contact Youth Ministry with any questions.
