Youth Faith Formation


LOMC Youth Leaders Retreat
Registration Deadline, Jan. 21

Practice being “still” with God as we engage in Bible study & worship. We will discuss how LOMC can improve your partnerships with youth in regards to faith formation, and invite new ideas of programming available for all ages. We will enjoy fellowship and networking with fellow colleagues as well as go on a surprise field trip! 

Ministry Links Online

Resources for households, children's and youth ministry. Curated by ELCA Pastor Janelle Rozek Hooper, the ELCA Program Director for Ministry with Children, this site links to hundreds of topics and ideas for ministry with children and youth.



Do you have a theologically astute high school student who is always peppering you with questions? Do you know a youth who has gifts for ministry? Send them to NEXUS! Nexus is a free, week-long residential experience for high school students to dive deep into leadership, theology, and their understanding of vocation. All this happens in the context of authentic Christian community. Based out of Grand View University in Des Moines, Iowa, a college of the ELCA, this event is FREE for one high school student per congregation (transportation not included). For more information talk to Pastor Elise Rothfusz in the synod office.
