The ELS Board for Youth Outreach’s goal is to promote the spiritual education and Christian fellowship of the youth of the synod. In addition to promoting camps and retreats of different churches and circuits of our Synod, the BYO hosts an annual Lutheran Youth Association convention (LYA) and the Lutheran Youth Honor Choir.  


Young Branches Videos: Liturgy

One of the most frequently asked questions pastors seem to get from youth is something along the lines of “why do we worship the way we do?” This series of videos comes out of a series of Young Branches Articles from the Sentinel that sought to answer that question. Thanks to a generous donor, we were able to put the articles in motion.
