National Youth Gathering 2022

Registration is OPEN for the 2022 National Youth Gathering in Houston, TX! 

Prince of Peace will be taking a group and we want all of our High School students and young adult to be a part of it.

The Gathering will take place on July 9-13 in the Houston Convention Center and in Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros. Participants will hear from a wide variety of speakers, bands, and others around the theme “In All Things” which will remind us that Jesus permeates life and especially holds us together in tough times. Students will also enjoy a wide variety of experiences in the Convention Hall, serve the community in unique ways, make new friends, enjoy touring a fabulous city and much, much more.

A meeting was recently held to go over all the details about the trip with youth and parents to cover details like travel, housing, cost, fundraisers, covid protocols, and much more. Director of Family & Youth, Eric Gerken is happy to share information with any families that were unable to attend the meeting. You can contact Eric by email at

These quality polo shirts are a great way to show the community your support for our church and our ministries. The polos are available in several colors and styles and the sales will support our teens and chaperones who will attend the LCMS National Youth Gathering in Houston in summer 2022! When atleast 20 orders are received, our youth committee volunteers will place a bulk order of your shirt orders. It will take approximately 2 weeks for that order to arrive when the volunteers place the order. If you have questions, please contact the office at
