Register Now! - Fall Leaders Convocation

Encuentro: Leading from Liminal Spaces - November 1st, 2022

The Fall Leaders Convocation is back!

This year we'll have one convocation occurring simultaneously in three locations; Triumphant Love Lutheran Church in Austin, Zion Lutheran Church in San Antonio, and Galilean Lutheran Church in Corpus Christi. Together we'll explore liminal spaces, aided by the wisdom of Rev. Dr. Jay Alanis and local conversation facilitators. The main site will be Zion Lutheran Church in San Antonio, where Rev. Dr. Jay Alanis will be speaking live and in person.

Please register for this event here. All locations will use the same registration form and have a place to indicate which location you intend to attend or if you will be joining us online. 

Keep your eyes open for more information as it becomes available and for opportunities to engage Encuentro before the convocation itself.



The Lutheran Church experienced a reformation more than 500 years ago. Learn how the church is still reforming and how we are re-formed because of church history and vision.

Camp fun and interactive, faith-filled learning with other synod youth are all a part of The Gathering experience. Youth will stay in cabins with youth from other churches and Cross Trails staff, unless the church elects otherwise. At least one adult from the church is required to be present the entire time. Adults can stay in a cabin with other adults, or with the same gendered youth from their church if they have a Protect my Ministry certificate or the equivalent. Group registration is required.

Camp Chrysalis, November 11-13
