LYF in CAifornia
LYF (or Lutheran Youth Fellowship) is youth in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. All youth and all youth groups of the LCMS are a part of LYF. In the Pacific Southwest District we have historically recruited youth to serve on a district LYF board at youth gatherings like LIFE 2014.
As we have moved to regional gatherings, we see wisdom in moving to regional LYF teams as well. Therefore at Journey 2015 it is our goal to select a new team of youth from churches around Southern California to serve as the regional LYF team for Southern California. From this team a chairperson will be selected to represent the youth of Southern California 3 times a year as a part of the district LYF board. Meetings for the LYF board are held in part with the District Youth Committee at Bethany Lutheran Church, Long Beach, CA.
If you are a DCE or other youth worker with an interest in becoming a mentor for a group of LYF leaders in Southern California please contact Brandon Heath, LYF District Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dave Rueter, District Youth & Family Ministry Facilitator (email@example.com).
