Luther College
Decorah, Iowa

High school youth from ELCA congregations are invited to the Wholly Iowa Youth Leadership Discipling Event June 11-14 at Luther College in Decorah. This annual camp is designed to help high school youth learn how to become future leaders of the church.

WIYLDE offers three tracks designed to give in-depth knowledge and training on a particular type of leadership. The teens will meet in small groups to discuss and put into action what they learn. The three tracks are:

  • Worship Leadership — Learn the basics of Lutheran worship and liturgy and how to become a worship assistant.
  • Share Your Faith — Discover how to share your personal faith story in many different ways, and learn how to write and lead a Bible study.
  • You Can Do Ministry — Learn what your spiritual gifts are and how you can use those gifts to do ministry now and in the future.


Watch for registration information coming soon!
