National Youth Gathering 2025

National Youth Gathering is a life-changing experience that is held once every 3 years and provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to be encouraged in their walk with Jesus Christ and learn about the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity. National Youth Gathering is organized by LCMS Youth Ministry.


NYG 2025

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.

“As a former youth of Lamb of God, it was the National Youth Gathering that the Lord used to plant the seed of serving in ministry for my calling.  It was the first time that I saw so many fellow Lutheran youth worship together from all parts of the country and even the globe (NYG New Orleans 2001).  Lamb of God made the investment of support in my faith as a youth and NYG attendee.  I feel so grateful to be able to now pay that investment forward in helping to lead our group of 50 to NYG2022!  Thank you, Lamb of God, for seeing our young people as critical investments in not only our church but the world! We thank you for your prayers and support to the upcoming National Youth Gathering in 2022. May we ultimately be investors in His Kingdom!”  Hannah Prindiville, Director of Family Ministry
