Lutheran Youth Organization (LYO)
The Lutheran Youth Organization (LYO) is an organization of high-school age young people who are members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America . There are nearly 100,000 ELCA youth across the United States and the Caribbean. 

The LYO is a place where the voices of young people are lifted up in the church. This ministry happens through young people discussing and advocating issues of importance to them concerning faith, youth ministry, the ELCA, local communities, and the world. 

Southeast Iowa Synod Lutheran Youth Organization  offers LYO events close to home. 


Lutheran Campus Ministry

ELCA campus ministry is a Lutheran ministry on campus, not just a ministry to Lutherans. It provides an ELCA presence at more than 180 state and private colleges and universities, with cooperating congregations in campus ministry at an additional 400 campuses nationwide

Imagine Yourself (ELCA)
Lutherans believe that we are all living out our callings or our "vocations" in the ways we help our neighbors and share the love of Christ with them. You don't have to be a pastor to have a vocation! Explore your vocation.

Young Adults in Global Mission (ELCA)
The ELCA Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) program invites you to step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself in a one year international mission service and learning opportunity. As you offer yourself in service, you will also learn more about yourself, your relationship with God, and your place in God’s world.
