The ELCA Multicultural Youth Leadership Event
The Multicultural Youth Leadership Event is a pre-event to the Gathering and exists to empower young people of color and those whose primary language is other than English to claim their story as a part of God’s story; in order to move toward healing and wholeness as transformational leaders in the church and in the world.
MYLE’s core values include:
Culture is explored. Participants will experience an inclusive community that seeks to build understanding and appreciation of the various cultures and ethnicities that are a part of this church.
Leaders are formed. Youth and adults will learn about the issues in their communities and how to effect change.
Identity is claimed. Participants will be encouraged to uncover their story and live out their God-given calling in the world.
Faith is deepened. Youth and adults will explore the intersection of faith and life and how our faith calls us to act justly in the world.
Friends are made. Participants will connect with peers who are looking to build relationships and have a good time.
MYLE 2018 will be held June 24 – 27, 2018. The cost for MYLE is $190 per person and includes all housing, program and some food expenses during MYLE. To learn more about previous MYLEs, follow them on Facebook.
