As we gear up for Minneapolis in 2021, let’s take a fun look back at Houston 2018:

Registration rates are unchanged this cycle with the cost being $350.00 per person (if you register your congregation and pay the deposit between September 21 and November 20, 2020).

  • The ELCA will be using a new online registration program this cycle. Information and training opportunities will be forthcoming this spring and summer.
  • Hotel room costs should be budgeted to be around $159.00 + 11% tax* per room per night (*ELCA congregations will NOT be exempt from the taxes this cycle due to Minnesota tax laws).
  • We are anticipating offering bus transportation again for this Gathering and I will share information as we begin to plan those details – preliminarily I anticipate reservations opening for synod buses on October 1 with buses filling on a first-come-first-served basis.

Volunteer Positions Needed:

    • Leaders (at least 1 adult male and 1 adult female)
    • Registrar
    • Financial
    • Fundraiser leads (everybody does at least 1 event)
