The Church joyfully sings praises to Jesus’ glory, that He died and rose for each and for all.

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! We sing of Jesus’ death and resurrection, praising Him for it and delivering into each other’s ears the Gospel message that He died and rose for you.

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 Spirit, and sing the Christian faith to each other.
