Delaware-Maryland and Metro D.C. Youth + Family Ministry

Welcome to Youth + Family Ministry in the Metro D.C. and Delaware-Maryland Synods! You'll find information here about upcoming youth events, our high school leadership development program, youth worker education and networking, and more. To view the full website for each synod, click on its logo below.

We empower congregations and their leaders to help households become places of faith lived by:

  • providing practical resources, consultations, workshops, networking events, and continuing education opportunities for leaders;

  • encouraging young people to become leaders who are excited about sharing the Good News of God’s love at all levels of Church;

  • equipping congregations to support inter-generational ministry and faith formation for everyone within the household; and

  • sponsoring events and gatherings that model community and faith formation.

Learn more about Events and Retreats below! One upcoming event that we'd like to highlight is our High School Leadership Retreat, held June 17-19 at United Lutheran Seminary - Gettysburg.
