Gatherings 2021-2022

Fall District Sr. Youth Gathering "Cross Roads" is POSTPONED

Unfortunately the Senior High District Youth Gathering is postponed.  The registrations did not reach the point where we would have enough resources to put on the quality of event that we have put on for many years in the Missouri District.

Although the event is not happening this fall, our goal is that this will be a 'postponing' of the event in the hopes that we can provide an opportunity to gather.

We are excited to announce that we are planning for a spring 2022 Jr. High District Youth Gathering. Unfortunately, due to the effects of COVID-19 there have been unforeseen circumstances that did not make a Fall 2021 Jr. High District Youth Gathering realistic.  We look forward to the spring where we can plan well for an even that is the size and caliber of our MO District Jr. High Gatherings.  More details will be announced in the near future.
