St. Paul encourages young pastor, Timothy, "Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity" (1 Timothy 4:12). The young adults in our congregations, those who have just graduated high school to those starting careers and families, are vital partners in the ministry.
With an emphasis on faith, service, and community, Lutheran Young Adult Corps provides long-term service opportunities in communities of need for young adults between ages 18-26. Participants can give witness to their faith through acts of mercy, making a difference in the lives of the people they serve. To learn more visit the Lutheran Young Adult Corps homepage.
Servant events are available for young adults in a variety of places throughout the year. To find a servant event and learn how you can participate, visit the LCMS Servant Event page.

Behold, my servant shall act wisely; he shall be high and lifted up, and shall be exalted.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up
