Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod leaders share enlightening, comforting poll results following the 2016 National Youth Gathering.
Participants at every triennial LCMS Youth Gathering since 1980 take the poll that helps inform the Church and aids in developing youth-ministry resources and events.
From my 38 years in LCMS Youth Ministry, I’ve observed youth who make strong leaders to have certain God-given gifts in common.
When we see positive data like the Youth Polls present, why wouldn’t we want that for all our teens? How are we investing in all youth?
Are young people’s attitudes and experiences any different in 2016 from what they were in 1980?
The March 17-20 Lutheran Youth Fellowship training in St. Louis will focus on faith-sharing in the “digital age.”
Youth are not the future church, but they are the church’s future. They have been trained to ‘stand strong’ in an age of tolerance.
