It’s over a year away, but it’s not too soon to start planning. It’s the United Methodist National Youth Gathering – Youth2019! Many of our youth groups do an annual mission trip. But almost none of our WI Conference churches participate in the one-a-quadrennia youth gathering (that’s once every four years). We are looking into how to make it easier for churches to participate in this amazing, huge youth gathering. But we need to hear from you.

We are putting together a list of churches that are interested in learning more. And more specifically, we want to know if you might want to ride there on a bus with other churches from our conference. The event is an 8-12 hour drive (depending on where in WI you live). We are willing to coordinate and organize renting one or more buses to make it easier to get there. But we need to know if there is interest. No commitment required.

If you are even the slightest bit interested in learning more, or looking into it, please get in touch with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., Coordinator of Age-Level Ministries, at 608-837-3388. Learn more about Youth2019 here:
