AT THE INSTITUTE YOUNG PEOPLE PRACTICE VOCATIONAL DISCERNMENT, BUILD MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS, ENGAGE COMMUNITY, AND BUILD HOPE FOR A MORE LOVING WORLD.
The Augsburg Youth Theology Institute hosts an annual weeklong on-campus experience in the summer each year for high school students to gain deeper insight into who they are and the life they want to live as children of God. The CONFLUENCE is an experience that empowers young people to be curious about how their personal story, the world's story, and God's story flow together to create a loving and just world. Together in community, participants learn how to practice vocational discernment through a variety of experiences including - intentional community, daily spiritual practices, personality inventories, academic inquiry, theological exploration, and experiential learning in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood and the greater Twin Cities.Join us this summer
"It gave me hope in the next generation of Christians. You hear all the time about how God hates, but at the camp I was just surrounded by people ready to debunk that and love everyone. Overall, the experience was something I wish everyone could experience."
"I loved meeting new people, trying new foods, and learning about new theologies and ways of thinking/viewing the world. Those new experiences meant a lot to me, and getting to do it with a great group of people was even better!"
