More than 400 Lutheran teens from across the United States are expected to gather on the Utah State University campus this week to learn about "cultivating and promoting a distinctly Lutheran identity."

The "Higher Things Lutheran" youth conference runs from Tuesday through Friday.

Aimed at junior high, high school and college-aged young people, the activities will include multiple worship services, breakaway and plenary teaching sessions, and entertainment.

"Kids will, without doubt, have memories from this week that they will carry long after their conference T-shirts are faded," the Rev. George Borghardt, Higher Things president, said in a news release. "They'll learn how Christ and him crucified is the core of our faith."

Higher Things is a service organization of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod.

The Logan event — the second in that Cache County city in five years — will be the 28th youth conference Higher Things has held since its beginnings in summer 2000.
