The Clock Is Ticking

...and registration for Passion 07 is getting closer by the second!

As you know, we are headed to Atlanta in just ten short months. Sure, there's a lot of life to be lived between now and then, but plans are fully underway for next year's gathering, January 1-4, 2007. We'll have a little more space this year as we move into Philips Arena and the Georgia World Congress Center, but after selling out for Passion06 we don't know exactly what to expect.

What we do know is this: registration opens at 12 noon (EST) Wednesday. That's this Wednesday, as in the day after tomorrow, March 1. In an effort to make Passion as affordable as possible, a special discounted price will be available for the first 1000 people who register. The first 500 to make it through will get the super low price of $99, while the next 500 will be at $109. For person 1001 and those who follow, the cost will be $119 until June 30. Last year the special price sold out in 28 minutes, so type fast.

Hotel info and other details will be available in coming days on the new Passion07 website, but the preferred location is The Omni Hotel @ CNN Center. The hotel is attached to Philips, offers great fast food options in the CNN Center, is steps from the GWCC and offers free wireless.

Some of you, in fashionable collegiate style, will wait 'till the last possible nanosecond to try to get in. But for you guys who like to plan ahead, happy registering!


  • Can't wait! It's gonna be awesome to have it here in Atlanta. I just hope I can scratch up the money before it's sold out.

May God continue to bless your lives.

  • ok. so i found a spelling mistake on the passion website, and a lot of repitition on a page. the word "our" in the general faq (the question about one day) and the entire hotel faq is repetitive. but it looks amazing. im so pumped.

  • i hope God willing that i'll be able to make it..

  • I wanted to share with all of you how Passion, Purpose, and Designer Jeans spoke to my heart.

    I write articles occasionally for 24-7prayer.com, and my latest article came to life from that talk... It's called Passion, Purpose, and Filmmaking...

    I'm sure I'm not alone... I was one of the guys who perked up when film was mentioned...

    Please read it and send me a message... Tell me what you think...

    And Louie, thank you so much for such a liberating message... It took the veil off of my eyes and allowed me to see myself for who I am, as God sees me... And it's still breaking the walls I've put up guarding me from all those I feel so vulnerable around... There's just something so freeing about knowing I can pursue the life God has given me with every bit of uniqueness, quirkiness, and personality that He placed in me in the first place...

  • Ok so call me OCD or way too type A personality but I definately just booked 13 rooms at the Omni for my campus ministry. I cant wait for Passion 07. It sounds really weird to say that but yay registration begins tomorrow. I'm sure my professor wont mind if i'm 10 min late to class, he always is.

    By Blogger fallenfacedown, at 2/28/2006 6:12 PM  

  • Dude, me and like, two other girls, Sarah and Lauren, are so going to be typing our faces off tomorrow at 12!! We so cannot wait. This year was so incredible. PS- Another friend of mine, Andrew, and I were talking and we decided that if either of us ever wins a big lottery, like, 10 million dollars, we are not going to buy houses for our parents, or our dream cars, or college tuition... We are so going to pay for this thing to happen-- once here in the US, and then one in another country.... Or maybe both in other countries. That's how much God has used it to impact our lives!! I CAN'T WAIT!! PPS- Wristbands going strong. Lauren's is like, all duct taped now though, lol. YES! PPPS- I am definately wearing a Passion shirt right now, but one that I made for this year, not that I bought (but of course I bought one too--the light gray one).

  • So this whole type fast thing doesn't work when your roommate has a DAS keyboard(means there are no letters on the keys)=frustration. Regardless, I too got in!!! My friend was downstairs and I was upstairs and we were both on our computers yelling minutes back at each other :P I can't wait! I hope to see some of you guys next year!! Let the countdown begin...

  • I submitted at 12:11:18 and got the 119$ price. I have no way of understanding how 1000 people got in before me, but it's awesome to know people are excited.

    By Anonymous Cal, at 3/01/2006 12:31 PM  

  • Ok this is not fair! I was watching the countdown and the sec it opened I was there to register and they were sold out. How does that work!? I'm still going to get registered, but how is it the sec it opens up they are sold out? Anyways, I will get there (somehow) even if I have to pay more money ;)(oh well) Hope you all have a great day! And get Registered!! You'll be sorry if you don't.
