Youth Pre-Assembly

Young people learning from one another and bringing their voice to the Assembly 


Youth are not only the future leaders of the church, they are important leaders in the church today. 

The LWF is excited to welcome young leaders from around the world to the LWF Youth Pre-Assembly Gathering in Wisla, Poland. This gathering will take place 8-11 of September 2023, immediately preceding the Thirteen LWF Assembly.

Investment in youth leadership is a call of the Gospel and has also been a central commitment of the Lutheran World Federation for decades.

The youth pre-Assembly brings together LWF Assembly delegates who are 18-30 years old to worship, build community and capacity for participation in the Assembly, and to discuss LWF youth priorities. At the Assembly, the group will present those priorities. LWF Assembly stewards are also invited to attend the youth pre-Assembly.
