*These are forms required by the ELCA Youth Gathering. Why do we ask for the ELCA forms? The ELCA will not allow participants to participate in the servant event and other events without their paperwork. By sending the synod a copy, it means you have peace of mind that all your paperwork is complete and means a copy is on site in case yours are lost or stolen.
Additions, Substitutions, Cancellations
Additions: The Synod Journey is full and is not able to additions. If you have youth who wish to register, they can be added to the waiting list by emailing Catherine.
Substitutions: You are able to make same-gender substitutions. Please use the forms below to submit new registration information. If you would like to make a different-gender substitution, please contact Catherine to make sure there is space in your hotel configuration.
Cancellations: Please notify Catherine as soon as possible if you have a participant cancel. If there are youth on the waiting list, we will replace your cancellation with those youth if they fit in housing and bus assignments. If a substitution is not found for your cancellation, you will lose the payments made for that person up to that point.

Background Checks for Synod Journey Adult Leaders
All adult leaders are required to submit to a Background Check to participate in the Synod Journey.

Follow the instructions and link in that email to submit your information for your background check. Forms only take 2-3 minutes to fill out. Background checks performed for other organizations cannot be used in place of this one.
The NE MN Synod uses SecureSearchFaith to process the background checks. Please read the NE MN Synod Journey Background Check Guidelines for information on what checks we will do and how we will handle your information.
