Higher Things is grateful to acknowledge the sponsor of this summer’s conference t-shirts: 1517. The Legacy Project. Each attendee at all four conferences will receive a shirt which has been provided by their sponsorship, and helps commemorate this summer’s Here I Stand conference theme. 

“When we were considering sponsors for this summer conferences, 1517 came to mind automatically. When you think, ‘Here I Stand,’ you think ‘1517.’ I hope our organizations find other projects to work on together in the future,” said Higher Things Development Executive Erica Jacoby. 

1517’s Scholar-in-Residence and Director of Curriculum Development, Dr. Daniel van Voorhis, will be one of the plenary teachers at the Montana conference. He will also be teaching breakaway sessions at the Texas and North Carolina conferences. 

“We are really excited to have 1517 sponsor our conference shirts. Our organizations share a common love for the gospel and the comfort of troubled consciences,” said Higher Things President Rev. George Borghardt. “We’re grateful to all of our sponsors for their support as we dare youth to be Lutheran.” 

The 2017 conference season kicks off next week in San Antonio, TX, and then continues during following weeks in Mars Hill, NC; Bozeman, MT; and Valparaiso, IN. 

1517. The Legacy Project serves churches and the world by providing a message of hope for those broken by the church, supplying theological resources that strengthen congregations, and modeling ways of engaging the culture in a manner that is thoughtful, courageous, and Christ-centered.

Higher Things is a Recognized Service Organization of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod that holds annual youth conferences and assists parents, pastors, and congregations in cultivating a distinctly Lutheran identity among their youth and young adults.
