Our Senior High Youth attend Higher Things conferences as often as fundraising will allow,usually every year or every other year. Locations vary around the country for this wonderful gathering of youth that come together to worship God.

What could be more moving than 1000 teenagers worshipping the Divine Service together?

  • Encourages youth to consider vocations of service in the church;

  • Establishes networks for congregations to share resources for youth ministry;

  • Connects high-school and college youth with faithful Lutheran campus ministries and assists congregations and campus ministries in their service to Lutheran college students.
