Coming To Atlanta!

Yes, you are. Lot's of you!

As the price nudged higher at midnight Friday night, registration crossed the 13000 mark with over three months to go... and more of you snagged a spot today at the new price. Exciting.

We're working hard to get ready for you all and are grateful for your comments and prayers for the Passion staff team. Our situations at the Passion House are ongoing and unfolding, requiring perseverance
, wisdom and grace. We treasure your continued prayers and will keep you updated.

This week our Community Group facilitators and worship leaders will be in Atlanta, preparing for Passion 07. It's humbling when you think about the amazing team God has brought together to lead the 20 CGs this year. Pray for us this week as we hang out together, worship, plan and pray.

Talk soon!

PS- I know some of you follow this Blog from far flung places around the nation and world. While we're focused on Atlanta, we know many of you who can't make it to Passion 07 are still passionately following Jesus where you are...and we're totally with you.

By the way, if you're not 18-25, you can still make the trek to Atlanta and join our volunteer team. We need lots more of you to take a role and help us make this event all it can be. So, if you're 26 or older, follow the links at 268Generation.com to Passion07, check out the volunteer information and come and join us!

    I'm in highschool too. We can only go if you are a highschool seniour or are 18 yrs. We just have to wait until we are of age. But we can still pray for the ones that can go!

  • I will be praying for this week of preparation and all the personal struggles some of you are facing!
    Thank yor so much for all your investment for God's kingdom to spread the passion vision.
    I'm too old ;-)(27!!)to attend and to far away - Germany.
    But I'm seriously praying that one day we will have a passion in Europe (maybe even Germany??)
    I try to do my part and invite people to my home where we watch Louie`s messages.
    I discovered through your ministry God in a greater way and don`t want to keep for myself!
    Good to know that our awesome God is the same where ever we are!!

  • Goooo! 13,000... in SEPTEMBER! That's exciting...

    Just an idea: our college ministy bought 100 tickets for our college students, and we're charging an extra $10/ticket, with all of the extra money going toward flying a mainland Chinese student over to have a week of worship without fear of persecution!

    Anyway, I thought it was a pretty cool idea worth sharing, in case there are other churches out there looking for ways to get their students thinking globally!

  • I heard a rumour from my youth pastor that Louie will be in Adelaide next year!
    Is this true?

    Just saw that See the Morning is 33 on the US iTunes chart. Good work!

  • Well, early this morning after my 7:45am class I destined out to the nearest wal-mart and picked up the new Tomlin CD, and I must say, it is unreal! From the first line of the CD to Amazing Grace at the end, it is AWEsome!
