Just got back from Passion 2010 in Atlanta, GA. I met our group there a day late, but the days I was there was full of the majesty of God. Louie Giglio and his team orchestrated a wonderful conference inspiring college students to worship and mobilizing them to impact the world.
Led by the likes of Louie Giglio, Beth Moore, Francis Chan, Andy Stanley, John Piper, Chris Tomlin, David Crowder Band, Charlie Hall, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels, Hillsong United, Kristian Stanfill, and Fee, this conference was not lacking for people who truly love Jesus. While I don’t know any of those leaders personally, I truly trust their hearts. They bleed passion for Jesus.
Our group had a great time. If you want to view the last couple of sessions, they are up for a few more hours here.
In March, a new Passion CD will come out with some of these new songs. I can’t wait to lead some of them in our church in the weeks to come.
My takeaway: Worship is a lifestyle.
At Passion, you worship big. But you also put feet to your commitment by living big. 22,000 college students gave over $668,000 to meet needs around the world. You know why? This group realized that to mobilize this generation, you have to give missions a face. You have to make it tangible.
Great time. Heart is full tonight. Grateful, humbled, ready to play my small part in the story.
