The Higher Tour

The Higher Tour is an initiative of The Message Trust working to equip, encourage and strengthen the local church in reaching young people in your area with the life-transforming, world-shaking gospel of Jesus. Together, we want to raise a generation of culture-shifting disciples.

Higher combines innovative schools work with large-scale gospel proclamation events and cutting-edge discipleship resources. We passionately believe that the transforming power of Jesus is not just for one evening at an action-packed event, but for good – so we want to see new Christians become rooted in a local church to continue their journey of faith and engage in long-term discipleship.

How it works

The Higher Tour begins in schools. Our mission teams will spend a day in each school taking lessons and assemblies, drawing on our 27-year history of representing the Christian faith clearly and authentically in an educational context.

Following the schools’ days are evangelistic gigs – perfect for inviting young people and their friends. These will feature a clear presentation of the gospel and an opportunity to respond and be connected to a church.

The local church is at the heart of the Higher Tour. We long to see young people engaged in a healthy Christian community as they begin their journey of discipleship. After a young person makes a decision to follow Christ during the Higher Tour, our goal is that they would be quickly connected with a youth worker from one of our partner churches.
