2022 WELS International Youth Rally
June 28-July 1
University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Royal people. Momentous Purpose. We are here and now “for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14).

The 2022 WELS International Youth Rally is in the rearview mirror. What a ride it was! We thank our Triune God for watching over us in Knoxville and blessing the rally in so many ways. Thank you also to the 2200 rally attendees who gathered for worship, service, recreation, workshops, fellowship, music, food, and fun in Tennessee.
