Still processing all that Jesus did in me and around me at Passion 2011. I needed to go a day late due to church responsibilities, but college students were texting me telling me how incredible everything was before I even got there. Being able to worship alongside our students and join them in giving sacrificially to worthy causes was such a fantastic way to begin the year.
I could go on and on about the programming of Passion. Who wouldn’t love to hear Louie Giglio, Beth Moore, Francis Chan, John Piper, Andy Stanley, and David Platt speak? Who wouldn’t be overjoyed to be led in worship by Chris Tomlin, David Crowder Band, Matt Redman, Charlie Hall, Kristian Stanfill, Christy Nockels, and other special guests? No one would deny the energy getting 22,000 college students together for lively worship with incredible, impacting media presentations. Everyone was impacted by the profound presentations of the needs in the world.
All of that was great, but it wasn’t my favorite part.
