Baptismal Promises

This year’s WIYLDE will focus on baptism and the promises that students make during their affirmation of baptism. Guest teachers, small group and large group Bible studies, learning sessions, games and more will help us focus on our baptismal promises.

Register by May 1, 2019!

The cost to attend WIYLDE is $300 per student. The Northeastern Iowa Synod will contribute $100 scholarships for their members. Students who recruit a friend who is new to WIYLDE will receive $25 off their registration fee when they register. Registration is due Wednesday, May 1, 2019.
