Lutheran Youth Group


What is LYO?
In 1987, young delegates from the three ELCA merging churches came together in Indianapolis to build on that foundation. They founded the ELCA Lutheran Youth Organization (LYO), which began with the new church on January 1, 1988. A primary purpose of LYO is to provide a context through which youth share in the oneness of Christ by proclaiming through word, deed, prayer, worship, Bible study, fellowship and service the gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord. Since its birth, the LYO has called for the full participation of youth in the total life and mission of the church.
