WND Lutheran Youth Organization

The WND Lutheran Youth Organization includes each and every high school student in congregations across our synod.  Each fall, hundreds of young people from our congregations come together for the annual LYO Gathering, 3 days focused on growing and sharing our faith, serving the world in Christ’s name, engaging in dynamic worship, and building relationships.

The LYO Board and Advisors

The LYO Board is elected each year during the LYO Gathering and consists of 1 youth member from each of the 7 conferences of the synod and 4 officers.  Each member serves a 2-year term.  Adult advisors serve 1-year terms and are elected at the fall conference gatherings. The LYO Board plans and promotes the annual gathering and seeks to support and encourage congregational youth ministry throughout our synod.
