Our Purpose

The FLY Convention® is the biennial national youth gathering of the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations. The purpose of the FLY Convention® is to provide congregations with a tool for winning the lost, building the believer, and encouraging student disciplemaking in the local congregation. It seems good to us as we join together for common work and fellowship to state our beliefs in regard to the following matters.

WIN

The lost.

Build

The believer.

Encourage

Student disciplemaking.
