Conference Website:

Every summer for the last 15 years, youth have been immersed in the waters of their baptism at Higher Things conferences. On January 2, we invite college students and young adults to the campus of Concordia University - Chicago for an evening spent drinking from the firehose of the Gospel.

This unique Higher Things Lutheran unConference will begin with a service of Vespers and end with Evening Prayer. In between, seven incredible Lutheran pastors will take the stage for just 20 minutes each! A sit-down dinner will be provided with a Q&A session with the speaker panel. Registration is just $100/person

Registration for the Higher Things: We Confess unconference will open on November 1, 2015.
