Youth Mission Trip

July 13-21, 2024 | New Orleans

Youth Mission Trips are mountain-top, high-energy, week-long experiences filled with service-learning, faith formation, group building, outdoor adventure, worship, fellowship and tons of fun activities!

We’re headed to New Orleans next summer to join with thousands of high school youth from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America for the ELCA Youth Gathering, which is held every three years. We will experience Mass Gatherings & Worship with 25,000 Lutherans in the Superdome, servant projects throughout the city of New Orleans, nightly community life in hotels – dance parties, inflatable’s, & concerts, a larger-than-life Interactive Learning Center, featuring high-ropes, games, service learning and TONS of fun activities, group building with youth from across Nebraska and the nation, swamp and historical tours of the city, and great music, food, shopping, and culture in the French Quarter. Come love, deeply, grow spiritually, and share abundantly next summer in the Big Easy!

Trip Costs

Early Bird (Through Oct. 29): $725
Regular (Oct. 30-Jan. 15): $775
Late (Jan. 16-March 1): $825

A $150 deposit is due with your registration. If paying electronically, deposits will be paid at the time of registration. If paying by cash/check, we must receive your deposit within 10 days of registering. You are not considered fully registered until your deposit is received. All remaining payments must be received by April 28. Payments can be made online or by cash/check. Flexible payment plans are available.

The trip fees cover transportation, hotel lodging, gathering registration, most breakfasts and lunches, all activities, t-shirts, and a group dinner. In addition to the trip fee, families will be asked to cover all meals during travel days and dinners during the week (approx. 14 meals). Sheridan will work to keep these costs as low as possible for our group by pre-planning meal stops and catering options.

Sheridan Lutheran Church is committed to providing life-changing faith formation experiences for our young people and their families and is making a $1,400 per participant investment for the 2024 Youth Mission Trip. We ask families to pay a portion of these costs as indicated above. If you are in a position to pay the full $1,400 cost of the trip, we would receive that with joy.

Limited scholarship funds are available; contact Ian Hartfield for more information prior to registering. Scholarship recipients will be asked to register and pay the deposit.

This year, we are able to offer a $25 per youth discount for families registering more than one youth participant. Please contact Ian prior to registering for a discount code.

Please be sure to download and review the Important Date Sheet, which includes information about all of the pre and post trip events. Attendance at these events is expected for all trip participants.
