We're focussed on supporting young lives
Lutheran Youth of Queensland is committed to introducing young lives to the Good News about Jesus and supporting them and their families to reach their God-given potential. From humble beginnings, and with God's blessing, our ministry has grown so that today we are priveleged to influence thousands of young lives every year.
One Vision, Multiple Ministries
Our Vision is to see the young people and families ‘Alive in Christ; Passionate in Service’. We work towards this vision through our holiday camps, our leadership training programs in schools, our young adult ministry, our campsite ministry at Luther Heights Youth Camp and Koojarewon Youth Camp and our ministry training support for congregations and schools in Queensland.
