"WIYLDE Knights" is the theme for 2015

Wholly Iowa Youth Leadership Discipling Event (WIYLDE) is a ministry and leadership workshop for high school youth of ELCA congregations in Iowa and is supported by all three ELCA Iowa synods. WIYLDE will occur from June 14-17 this summer at Wartburg College.

The registration fee (including meals, lodging and a T-shirt) is $150. Register for WIYLDE online now or mail the form to the address listed on the bottom of the form! The deadline is May 1st.

WIYLDE participants will register for a track designed to give in-depth knowledge and training on a particular type of leadership. They will meet in small groups throughout WIYLDE to discuss and put into action what they learn. The three tracks are:

  • Worship, Leadership and Planning — Learn the basics of Lutheran worship and help plan worship.
  • Peer Ministry — Learn skills on how to be a leader in your youth group and help lead.
  • Justice and Service — Learn how to be involved in making a difference in the world and lead a service event.
