Support and care for the youth of the Northeastern Iowa Synod and equip them to be leaders in their congregations.



Join the LYO Network

All youth from the Northeastern Iowa Synod in grades nine through 12 are invited to join the LYO Network to learn leadership skills they can take back to their congregations. LYON will meet monthly with a focus on developing a spiritual relationship with Christ, strengthening relationships with others, and learning leadership skills.



  • Youth in the synod
  • Youth in leadership positions



  • Support youth of the church as they grow spiritually and in their leadership skills.



  • Help develop youth leaders for their congregations.
