About the Resources

Welcome to your Adult Leader Resources for the 2022 Youth Gathering! A team of seasoned youth workers and lay leaders have worked together to bring content we believe relevant to the work you are doing to prepare your group for the 2022 LCMS Youth Gathering in Houston, TX. Whether you are a veteran leader or new to the Gathering, we hope you find value in the following resources.  

God’s blessings as you and your youth move forward in your planning. He is with you “IN ALL THINGS” through the weeks and months ahead. See you in Houston! 


The LCMS Youth Gathering is just days away, so we have compiled a list of the most important items from this resource page into one section to make it easier for you to find and access. Please ensure that you have read through and are aware of everything on this list, and have printed the Emergency Medical Information Form and Medical Liability Consent Form. Blessings on your final preparations and upcoming travel to the Gathering! See you in Houston!
