LCMS Youth Servant Events

LCMS Servant Events provide opportunities for Christian service to the Church and world. They include personal Bible study, group building, and connection with other Christian youth. They give youth a chance to live what they believe by relating acts of service to daily life. They take youth out of their comfort zone and into the reality of others. They give youth the desire to share their love of Christ with the people of the world.
