The theme for our 2020 LCMS District Youth Gathering – Omaha, scheduled for November 20-22 at the Embassy Suites Conference Center, Omaha-LaVista, NE, is [extra]ordinary.

As we scroll through Instagram and Snapchat we are bombarded with images and videos of extraordinary people doing extraordinary things.  People are living awesome lives and it makes us second guess our own.  The truth is that most of us live pretty ordinary lives.  We wake up.  We go to school.  We do homework.  We hang with friends.  We spend way too much time on our phones.  We’ve got “extra” in our ordinary lives, but its stuff that makes us anxious or sad, things that worry us, scare us, and confuse us.  Its extra questions stirring within us and extra pressures all around us.

Amidst these pressures and questions of life there is an amazing truth: God loves ordinary people.  “[extra]ordinary” will lead students through encounters with Jesus who answers questions and calms fears.  Students will discover that the love of Jesus is the “extra” that their ordinary needs.

Costs have not yet been finalized. We suggest you budget around $150 per person for registration. Hotels rooms cost between $129-134/night, and that cost is not included in the registration fee. Fees will be finalized when materials are shared in August. Registrations will be due between October 17-31.

All Gathering participants must register in Family Groups. A family group consists of 2 adults with up to 10 youth. Adult leaders must be 21 years of age, and groups with both male and female participants are strongly encouraged to have both a male and a female adult leader.
