‘YouthLead’ Training for Teens
February 29, 2024 - March 3, 2024
YouthLead equips teens to develop and use their leadership skills as they serve Christ within their congregations and communities. LCMS Youth Ministry will host our 2024 YouthLead Training from Feb. 29 to March 3 in St. Louis.
Our focus will be Christian identity, who God has made us to be, and who we are to each other. Along with the new curriculum, we will be working through leadership development programming as well.
There are a limited number of spaces in the training. Once those spots are filled, we will gladly take participants on a waiting list.
Who can attend Youthlead?
Any high school youth who is an active member of an LCMS congregation and desires to be a leader can join us along with adults who desire to mentor young leaders.
We prefer teens attend with an adult leader from their congregation. Arrangements can be made for them to come unaccompanied.
How much does it cost?
Registration for youth and adults is $375. This covers your food and housing during the training, transportation to and from the airport if needed, supplies, and a shirt. You will also need to cover your transportation to and from St. Louis.
We encourage you to contact your district before you register as some districts have support for those attending this training.
What happens at a Youthlead training?
Youth are equipped for leadership in two key ways. First, we engage them in studying God’s Word through a Bible study they experience and are trained to lead back home.
Second, we focus on their unique identity and vocations as well as practical leadership skills that will benefit them in all aspects of servant leadership.
