In Christ Alone - LCMS Youth Gathering 2016

In Christ Alone… You Don’t Have To Do It Alone!

In preparation for the National Youth Gathering, July 16-20, 2016 in New Orleans, you have help to get you and your church organized and to the gathering.  Shannon Hecksel (St. Paul’s, Prior Lake) and Jackie Ohmann (Trinity, Northfield) are the district coordinators that can help you.  A couple trainings will be held this September (10:00am-12:30pm on 9/12/15 at Hosanna Lutheran in Mankato and 9/19/15 at Concordia St. Paul) to help you with registration, fundraising ideas, and anything gathering related.  Keep up with us on our Facebook page (, the district e-news, or by contacting either of us through email, text, or call.  We hope to see you in New Orleans!

In the mean time before all the registration process ramps up, we will be having a design contest for our district T-shirts. If you have any youth that are talented in art, they can submit an idea for the gathering T-shirt. The shirt design should include the gathering logo and theme but beyond that the design is wide open to those who would like to submit a design. Design submissions need to be turned in by October 1, and we will be making a decision by November 1.  Not only will you get to see your design on hundreds of t-shirts, the winning design will get a $100 Visa Gift Card compliments of LCEF.  If you are interested in submitting a t-shirt design, contact us for more information. 

We look forward to working with you!

In Christ Alone,
