Frequently Asked Questions / What are the age requirements for participants?

The LCMS Youth Gathering’s primary focus is for youth participants between the ages of 14 to 19. To register for the 2019 Gathering, youth participants must meet ONE of the two following eligibility requirements:
– Must be 14 years old at the time of the Gathering
OR
– Entering his or her ninth grade year at the time of the Gathering.
While we do allow students from the ages of 14 to 20 to attend, please keep in mind that some of the program content may not be relevant to older youth participants.
We suggest that students who are 19 and older, one year out of high school, or have been to at least one previous Gathering apply to be a Young Adult Volunteer.
