KI Convention Center – Hyatt On Main Hotel, Green Bay

Bishop Gerald Mansholt welcomes all High School Youth in the Synod to gather for a time for Dwelling in the Word, lots of conversation & prayer, and getting to know one another as we talk about who we are and where God might be calling us into mission. We intend these gatherings to be an important step in a Spirit-led process of shaping the synod to participate more deeply in God’s mission in the world. Having the voice of our youth is very important as we have small group conversations by Dwelling in the Word, Listening and  Praying Together and Asking

“What might God be up to in our synod?”  “Where might the Spirit be stirring our imaginations for ministry?”
