About the Extravaganza

The Extravaganza is January 26-29, 2018 in Houston, TX. It is an amazing 4-day conference that draws 500-750 adults who work with children and youth in congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America for the premier renewal, education and networking event of our church. 

It 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 laypeople. It is for all who share in the adventure we call youth and family ministry.
