Virginia Synod Youth Assembly

The Virginia Synod Youth Assembly is the annual meeting of the Virginia Synod Lutheran Youth Organization. The Virginia Synod LYO is also the group in Virginia that relates to the ELCA Youth Organization. The Youth Assembly meets at the same time as the Synod Main Assembly each year on the Roanoke College Campus. The next Youth Assembly will take place June 9-11, 2023 (noon Friday to noon Sunday), these are the same dates as the Main Assembly. The purpose of the Youth Assembly is: to give glory to God, celebrate the good news of the gospel, and nurture faith in the synod’s young leaders; to conduct the business of the Synodical Lutheran Youth Organization, including the election of the LYO board; to hear and explore the story of the church’s work beyond the congregations of the youth delegates and equip them to share and interpret those stories in their home contexts; and to give voice to and encourage leadership among youth in the church.
