Higher Things® has been known for our youth conferences that provide an intense week of Lutheran worship, catechesis, and fun. But we also have a ton of resources available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to help you learn (and teach!) what it means to be Lutheran—that you believe that we are are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

Here you'll find new articles and videos being posted every day, highlighting all sorts of different subjects: worship practices, theology and philosophy, social issues, history, and whatever news is flying around social media this week. (We take requests, too.)

Our goal is to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to bear on any and every issue facing youth today, and equip parents, pastors, and youth leaders to do the same!

Bible 101

In Bible 101, Pastor Mark Buetow leads you through the Bible and highlights the important things to keep in mind and how they all ultimately point you right to Christ and Him crucified for you.

The Catechized Life

So much of what we believe, teach, and confess is condensed into a booklet that a child can understand. And yet even Martin Luther himself said he could never grasp all the depth of it. 

VIDEOS

Dead Christians

Throughout history we’ll find stories about saints and martyrs — men and women who died professing their Christian faith. They proclaimed the Gospel and led lives worthy of legends. They are the dead Christians you should know about.

Hymnal 101

The hymnal isn’t just a book we use for church services. It contains a ton of resources that can be used throughout the week, even at home! Rev. Matt Richard teaches about the hymnal and why every Lutheran home should have one!

Largely Catechized Life

You’ve heard of the Small Catechism. But did you know there’s a Large Catechism? Go deeper into what Lutherans believe as Rev. Harrison Goodman walks us through the other catechism. Only larger.
