The Global Young Reformers Network is a platform of engaged young Lutherans from all LWF member churches who are eager to build communion, discuss vital theological questions and strengthen their faith together.

Part of the creation of the network included the development of a “Young Reformers Monthly Online Space” for discussion and idea sharing. 

In 2022, a monthly meeting space will be provided to continue such discussions.

The themes and questions are proposed and voted upon by young reformers through an online process. The discussion is moderated by young people.

These gatherings give young leaders an opportunity to deepen their understanding global issues facing other siblings in Christ, discover new models of addressing such issues theologically and practically, and discern how God is moving in their own lives and churches in community with other youth.

 

You are invited

We are a platform of engaged young Lutherans from all LWF member churches who are eager to build communion, discuss vital theological questions and strengthen our faith together.

"As an ongoing process of being together as a communion of churches, acknowledging the fact that we come from a very diverse context, a “Young Reformers' Space” was provided for young reformers to freely express their questions and views. It was inspiring to see that many of the young reformers could come together at table with different views and openly express themselves. It was an opportunity to understand and respect the diverse opinions and all the views of the young people in our member churches today on the many important issues that were raised. We are a community that values hearing one another in order that we may grow in our understanding of faith and communion. Many questions were raised from the diversity of our churches and not all of them could be answered, therefore, we continue our studies and reflections on what it means to journey together as a community of churches.”  (Final Message Workshop Wittenberg)

In 2022, we continue this process and invite you all to participate in a monthly discussion online.

Join the discussion online
 
Bring your questions

We belong to churches in ongoing reformation. Martin Luther's understanding of  the "priesthood of all believers" is still relevant today: it invites everyone to vital and open dialogue on how we read the Bible and connect to it in our lives. Bring your questions about being the church and living our faith today and tomorrow!

Your questions are vital in shaping the youth-led conversation among Global Young Reformers!

Present your ideas to an online audience

We are a community that values hearing one another in order that we may grow in our understanding of faith and communion. For each monthly meeting, three young reformers from different LWF regions and from one Living Reformation project are invited to bring their viewpoints to the panel. The 60 minute discussion will be enitrely youth-led.

“This is a platform of expressing yourself, your ideas and concerns which is not included or emphasized in other programs.” (Feedback from a young reformer in Wittenberg)
