LAS


Local Association of Scouters

The mission of an LAS is to support and encourage the efforts of those Lutheran congregations that have chosen to use Civic Youth Agency programs as a part of their youth ministry.

Local Associations often have a purpose related to the above functions that draws them together.
Examples include:

  • Work with civic youth agencies and church congregations to develop good relationships
  • Encourage additional Lutheran congregations, or groups, to use the civic youth programs as they fit in with their youth ministries
  • Ensure that a Lutheran/Protestant chaplain is in place for the council camps and weekend events.
  • Ensure that a proper chapel and program is available at local civic youth agency summer camps.
  • Encourage young people to use the religious growth programs.
  • Provide displays at civic youth agency events, District/Synod meetings and other opportunities to tell the story of religious emblems and the use of civic youth programs by Lutheran congregations
  • Encourage Lutheran units to have trained leaders, especially CORs.
  • Help Lutheran youth leaders understand their key role in ministering to the youth of their congregation and community
  • Fellowship with other leaders
  • Provide a Luthoree, Lutheran campout, or special retreats and gatherings as may support local Lutheran chartered units.
  • Encourage churches to sponsor new units.
  • Encourage youth to consider careers in ministry.
