LCMS Youth Gathering, New Orleans July 16-20:
Over 22,000 youth and adults from all 35 LCMS districts and 14 countries flocked to New Orleans for the 13th triennial LCMS Youth Gathering, held July 16-20 with the theme “In Christ Alone.”
“The LCMS Youth Gathering was a celebration of God’s gift of grace, faith and life in His Church,” said LCMS Youth Ministry Executive Director Rev. Mark Kiessling. “LCMS young people joyfully expressed their thanksgiving to God for His gift of faith and forgiveness. LCMS congregations showed their support and care for young people through prayer, financial support and words and acts of encouragement in preparation for and throughout the event.
In just five days, participants:
- filled more than 900 backpacks with school supplies;
- built a frame for a Habitat for Humanity home;
- donated 791 pints of blood, with a significant portion of that going to relief efforts after the police shootings in Baton Rouge, La.;
- made 1,000 fleece hats for children with cancer; and
- packaged 500,906 meals with Feeding Children Everywhere.
Items collected or assembled at the Gathering for distribution among 12 organizations included 7,000 diapers and wet wipes; 500 health kits with soap, wash cloths, socks, shampoo and lotion; 3,500 pairs of socks; 2,000 underwear items; 2,000 rolls of toilet paper and paper towels; and 1,000 toothbrushes.
In total, participants spent 33,000 hours volunteering and had an estimated economic impact of $29.4 million on the city of New Orleans.
Also at the Gathering were 580 Young Adult Volunteers, 220 Community Life Builders, 250 Gathering Planners and 580 other volunteers who served the young people and their adult leaders throughout the event.
The next LCMS Youth Gathering is set for July 11-15, 2019, in Minneapolis.
