Join the Kansas District at the LCMS Youth Gathering!

The LCMS Youth Gathering, held every three years, provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity. During the five days of the gathering, youth spend time together in God’s Word, worship, service and fellowship with others from across the Synod. The event is organized by LCMS Youth Ministry in St. Louis.

The NYG website will provide you with most of the information you need; we’ve provided links above to the national website as well as the registration page. Here on the Kansas District page, we’ll be posting additional details about transportation and our district event. You can also find contact information for our district coordinators, DCE Amanda Adams and DCE Kate Soeken. If you have any questions about NYG, let them know!

Online registration (data entry) for the National Youth Gathering begins September 5.

To access online registration, use the registration link above, which will take you to the national registration page. You’ll need your congregation ID and password to begin registration. Registration information, including the congregation ID, was included in a pre-Gathering mailer that was sent to all congregations. (See VIDEO here.)

Can’t find your ID? Call 1-800-248-1930 or email nygregistration@lcms.org.


The Kansas District wants your trip to Minneapolis to be as easy as possible! Charter buses will be available to Minneapolis and back to Kansas for just $150 per person. This also includes transportation to the district event. Once in Minneapolis, the light rail system is very easy to use. Parking in the downtown Minneapolis area will be very tight and can add up quickly if you are parking near the convention center or U.S. Bank Stadium.

Online registration and additional details for buses will be available soon.

District Event

Plan to join your fellow Kansas participants as we gather together for a Kansas District event. It’s always a great time where you can meet fellow Kansans or find old friends from camp and previous district events.

We’re finalizing contracts and will have more information soon. The cost for the district event is typically $35 and includes a meal.
