The Higher Ground Men’s Conference is the premier gathering of men of faith (13 years and older) in the Pacific Northwest for encouragement, straight talk and practical tools for living with integrity in today’s fragmented culture. Our dynamic keynote speakers and our wide variety of in-depth breakout sessions equip men to live their faith with authenticity as husbands, fathers, leaders in the workplace, and by building genuine friendship with God and with other men.
We’re on mission to educate and equip the next generation of men of faith to ensure a life of wholeness. Today’s hyper-sexual culture and media threaten to derail men and teenage boys on a daily basis. Innuendo, sexual objectification, and the ever-increasing accessibility to pornography seek to destroy what it means to be an authentic male. Higher Ground encourages men to come out of the shame game and come together to find grace and support to win the daily battle for sexual purity.
At Higher Ground, we believe that social justice isn’t about being political, it’s simply about being Jesus to so many in the world that are hurting and often marginalized. Various studies point toward pornography usage as a key driver of sexual slavery of women and children. And not just in developing nations, but right here in the Pacific Northwest. Our social justice partnerships with key local and national ministry leaders combine education with a call to action to do our part to fight the devastation of sex trafficking.
“Being surrounded by men that, like me, are searching for a deeper relationship with Jesus, was inspirational. It’s easy to sometimes feel as if we’re walking the path to righteousness alone, but in reality, Jesus is beside us, as are many like-minded men. I pray this conference was the Camp Muir on my way to the summit.”
“I walked away with the theme of integrity: That I am the image of God and that I, as a man, need to uphold His name in my actions and thoughts. I feel stronger in my recovery and in my faith. Thank you!”
“Personally not having a strong spiritual background, I felt at home and I was comfortable with the surroundings. Don’t let your lack of faith steer you away from this great learning and personal growth opportunity.”
“Higher Ground was AWESOME! As a pastor, it was great to see men from our church encouraged, challenged and fired up to live out God’s purposes from the great content and worship that took place at Higher Ground. I STRONGLY recommend Higher Ground ESPECIALLY for smaller/medium size churches.”
“As a teenager, this was very eye opening into how I can take the first steps into becoming a man living my life for God.”
“Higher Ground has been pivotal in helping open the lines of communication with my son on purity. It has also helped him to build a conviction, at a very young age, to stay away from pornography.”
