KANSAS DISTRICT INFORMATION
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!

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. 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.
There are two dates on which you can travel. You can travel on July 8, which would provide you and your group with time to explore Minneapolis before the gathering begins. The cost to travel on July 8 is $160 per person.
The second group of buses will leave July 10. The cost of this trip is $140 per person.
Registration for transportation will open at a later date.
You are invited to join us for the Kansas District Event at the LCMS Youth Gathering! Gather with fellow Kansas participants at Bowlero on July 11 from 3:30-6:30. Cost is $35 per person, which includes food, bowling, arcade games and laser tag!
Registration for this event will open at a later date.
