From our friends in the Episcopal Church:

The 2019 Forma Annual Conference will focus on two questions: How does Liturgy form us, and how are we forming people for Evangelism? It might seem strange to have a conference that focuses on two themes, but it is our belief that these two subjects have MUCH crossover. 

This is YOUR time to come, join with your colleagues in ministry and expand your knowledge and faith and love of God. This is your conference to gather with the wider Church to tackle tough issues. This is your conference...come and lead with us.

Join us as some of the most profound leaders in our church come together to talk about the modern liturgical movement, best practices, and the future of the American Prayerbook as well as formation in missional communities, forming ourselves for evangelism, and what we can learn from the modern evangelical movement within the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement!

The Extravaganza is the annual gathering of children, youth and family ministry leaders from across the ELCA. It is so much more than a conference: it’s space to be stretched, it’s worship, it’s inspiring speakers, it’s learning from colleagues across the country, it’s sharing your insights with others, it’s informative and transformative. The Extravaganza is renewing, educational and connects you with others…then sends you home strengthened for the ministry to which you have been called.

The Extravaganza is for the professional and the volunteer. It is for the old and the young. It is for the urban, the suburban and the rural. It is for pastors, it is for lay people. It is for all adult leaders who share in the adventure we call children, youth and family ministry!

The Extravaganza is hosted by the ELCA Youth Ministry Network.  For more information or to register go to
