    Extravaganza Housing Update: We're working with the hotel to make sure we have adequate housing for everyone who needs it. One thing that would be really helpful is if we knew exactly how many people still don't have a reservation yet. We created a short, online form to collect the information. If you DO NOT yet have a reservation, please go housingcrunch2013 and fill out the form. 

    We're confident we'll have housing for all, but this information would be helpful as we talk with the hotel. -Thank you!

    Extravaganza Housing Update: We know there are some folks anxious about getting their housing booked at the Hyatt. We're very hopeful that we'll get everyone into the hotel for the event with no problems. There is another group in the hotel and tomorrow the hotel gets their final rooming list. That group is not expected to fill their room block, so the hotel expects to have more rooms released to us. 

    So hopefully tomorrow, over the weekend, or on Monday, we'll be able to get everyone in. And if that doesn't work out, we'll have good alternatives to post next week when we know for sure.

    We will post updates here, and on our Facebook page the moment we hear them.

    Thanks for your patience!

    The 2013 Extravaganza will host a special screening of the documentary film "INOCENTE" on Sunday, January 27 in the Grand Ballroom.  INOCENTE is an intensely personal and vibrant coming of age documentary about a young artist’s fierce determination to never surrender to the bleakness of her surroundings.

    At 15, Inocente refuses to let her dream of becoming an artist be caged by her life as an undocumented immigrant forced to live homeless for the last nine years. Color is her personal revolution and its extraordinary sweep on her canvases creates a world that looks nothing like her own dark past – - a past punctuated by a father deported for domestic abuse, an alcoholic and defeated mother of four who once took her daughter by the hand to jump off a bridge together, an endless shuffle year after year through the city’s overcrowded homeless shelters and the constant threat of deportation.  Read more...

    The ELCA Youth Ministry Network is seeking nominations for individuals to serve on its Board of Directors.


    The Network board is tasked with providing vision, direction and policies for the ELCA Youth Ministry Network.  It’s role is to be thinking ahead; to be wondering about the state and the future of faith formation within the ELCA and the church as a whole, and to think about how the Network may best serve as congregational CYF leaders move into that future.

    The board meets face-to-face three times every year:  Typically in October, in January or February (at the Extravaganza) and again in April or May.  Attendance at these meetings is expected.  In addition, there are some online meetings that take place and a small amount of committee work.

    The Network is seeking leaders who are willing to give of their time, energy, expertise and passion for ministry alongside young people.  Previous leadership experience is helpful, as is a working knowledge of the Network.

    Terms on the board run 3 years.  Board members terms may be renewed for an additional 3 years.

    The Nominating Committee is tasked seeking qualified candidates, presenting a slate of these candidates to the Board to fill vacancies.  The board then approves this slate, or sends it back to the Nominating Committee for additional work.

    This year’s Nominating Committee is made up of Yvonne Steindal (Rapid City, SD); Julie Miller (Denver, CO); Lisa Gray (Canby, OR); Jamie Travers (Devils Lake, ND) and Manuel Retamoza (San Diego, CA).

    More information on the Network Board of Directors can be found on their web page, at

    Both nominations of self, as well as nominations of others are accepted. Nominations can be made at   The nomination process will close on October 15, 2012.

    Please give prayer and discernment to who might serve well and please submit good, quality names into the nominating process.

    Please contact us if you have any additional questions.
