HT Abroad

June 30 - July 6, 2024 - Dominican Republic

The Church is not tied to one physical location. Not one city, state, or even country. So Higher Things, in cooperation with LCMS International Missions, will be going to Santiago, Dominican Republic, to explore how the Lord sustains His church through Word and Sacrament ministry outside of domestic soil. Young adults (ages 18-24) will join together to not only serve in a foreign country but be served. 


  • Spend time together as a group leading up to the event
  • Travel to the Dominican Republic with the HT Abroad team
  • See Word and Sacrament ministry done on international soil
  • Spend time with HT Staff, taking part in a retreat designed just for you
  • Assist a local congregation by putting on a HT VBS curriculum for them
  • Experience the Dominican culture by taking in great local experiences
