2025  LCMS National Youth Gathering - Endure

The 2025 LCMS National Youth Gathering, titled "Endure," is a five-day event scheduled to take place from July 19-23 in New Orleans, LA. This event, organized every three years since 1980 by the LCMS Youth Ministry, provides thousands of young people and adults an opportunity to come together as a community of God's people. The main aim is to encourage participants in their walk with Jesus Christ, learn about the Christian faith, and affirm their Lutheran identity. In addition to the event days, the preparation process is also an integral part of the Gathering, allowing young people and supportive adults to encourage each other in their baptismal identity, equipping them for vocational service and giving them a vision of the vastness of Christ’s Church.

Open to current 7th through 11th grade students, this year's theme is "Endure", based on Hebrews 12: 1-3. Experience faith growth through Bible studies, sessions, and mass events in New Orleans, LA from July 19-23, 2025.

Confirmation 

Confirmation is part of a lifelong journey of faith, where students grow in confidence, competence, and conviction as faithful followers for life. Confirmands are even given the privilege of publicly confessing and confirming their baptismal faith and identity as a child of God before the congregation.
