The Church joyfully continues to sing Reformation hymns that deliver, preach, and praise Jesus, our only and true Savior.
Higher Things dares our youth to be Lutheran. We deliver to them “the faith once delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). At our Conferences, we not only preach and teach it, we also sing it! Since 2017 is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther posting the 95 Theses, this year’s album dares you to sing along with hymns by Luther and other Lutheran Reformers, Pastors, and poets.
You’ll sing along with Lutheran youth and young adults from around the country from one of our conference locations, as they receive God’s Word, praise God, Father, Son and Holy Spirt, and sing the Christian faith to each other.
