Amazing Boston!

Thank you Boston for an amazing weekend. Landing in the heart of NE reminded us all of why we do Passion in the first place. Being on your turf (right smack in the middle of BU on Commonwealth Ave.) lifting up the name of Jesus over the campuses, the city and all of NE had a totally different energy than having students from across the world gather in one central location. That's not to say the sense we had walking into Philips for Passion 07 wasn't phenomenal. Seeing 23,000 people in one place is inspiring, jaw-dropping and humbling. Yet being in the middle of New England, and standing with you as few in the midst of many, made for one of the most special steps of Passion's journey to date.

For a long, long time all that's been said of Boston and New England is that there aren't many followers of Jesus there. And while that may be true, I think the tide turned for me this weekend to say to all of you (and to the world), there may not be many followers of Jesus on the campuses of NE, but there are enough for God to change the current and cause the church to flourish.

In a few days we will be in Chicago, but we are carrying all of you guys from Passion Boston in our hearts. Your intensity and appreciation for the significance of the moment were so refreshing. We will not stop praying for you as you continue to integrate the powerful and freeing hope of Jesus into every fiber of your daily lives. And speaking of Chicago, the last thing the Boston folks did was pray for you, asking God to blast into the weekend to come like He did in theirs. And they gave! 18K+ to build over 6 wells for African villages and over 15K to bring an experience like this to students around the world, setting the bar for next weekend pretty high!

We love you Boston and can't say thank you enough for allowing us to share this incredible weekend with you! (And go Sox!)

  • Thanks Louie and the Passion team!!! What an absolutely AWESOME two days in Boston! I had been praying for two years to have Passion come and touch New England, and God answered my prayers, going above and beyond what I could have ever expected or hoped. Passion07 was amazing with students from all over the US, but Passion::Boston is holding such a dear place in my heart. Thanks for everything you let God do through you. I'm praying for Chicago...

  • those two days were amazing. I had big expectations and somehow I was a bit afraid that I would get disappointed but then I though: no expectation is too big for God!
    Well my expectations were exceeded!! What happened at Passion was something I never experienced before. Not in the US, not in Europe. God was sweeping the place! I'm looking forward to the world tour! God is going to blow a wind through the whole world!! I believe that.
    I'm back in Holland in 7 days and I can't wait to tell my youth group about Passion!!!

  • All I can say is Wow!! Passion Boston was such an amazing experience, and an uplifting time! I am from a little college in upstate NY, and a bunch of us from Intervarsity decided "hey why don't we take a road trip to Boston!"...I suppose that Chicago is too far away, so it was great having the Passion team up in our area! Also, we are now (Lord willing) planning a missions trip to a village near Kiev, Ukraine. We are all so amazed with the glory of God, and with what the Passion team is planning on doing next year! So all I want to say is thank you to Louie, and the entire Passion team for inspiring us, and getting us excited to spread the passion that's in our hearts!

  • Hi Louie! I was with you at Passion Boston, and I must say, it was truly a great experience! It is very rare that a group like Passion cares enough to visit us in little ol' New England! The words you spoke on Saturday afternoon couldnt have been more true. God is working on a tapestry much bigger than we could ever see! His ways are higher than ours! Again, thank you so much for everything you and the Passion crew do for the Kingdom of God. I will be praying for you this weekend while you are in Chicago! Be blessed!

  • amazing, this is one of those weekends that will stay with me forever. It was just an incredible time of worship with other New Englanders that were my age. Living up in Vermont we hardly ever get anything close to Passion in the socially progressive state. Being able to bring back what i learned and what God has placed on my heart over the weekend i hope is going to change the culture that we live in up here in Burlington, VT and we will be praying for Boston and every upcoming city and maybe even taking Louie's challenge about spending a week in a world tour city

  • Boston was truly amazing. I have never experienced nor even seen worship of that magnitude and I can honestly say this conference brought me and my worship to new levels with God. I listened to your podcast today and I thought i'd share a little something just to further confirm what you guys were feeling when you said that there was a look on everyone's faces like "I can't believe this is happening in Boston." I am not from Boston but when I was on the train to the Arena I spoke with a girl and her boyfriend who live there and they were on their way to Passion and they just had a look of awe on their faces as they repeatedly shared "I just can't believe how many christians are here in Boston, here on this very train" she went on to say "I never thought i'd see the day where i'd be surrounded by all these other people who love God right here in Boston." Thank you Passion, i'm continually praying for you guys and i'm eagerly looking forward to the movement happening in this generation thanks to ministries such as this one. -For His Renown!!-

  • Thanks, Louie and the entire Passion team for all that went in to making this weekend in Boston happen. I was actually "illegally" there as I have not been a college student for about 7 years now, but what I love about the truths you share is that they are timeless, spanning all ages and places in life. I've lived in Atlanta until this summer, so I had to be there for a taste of "home" when I found out you guys would be in Boston. Anyway, thanks again for coming to a place in the northeast. The church may be smaller here than a lot of places around the country, but believers here have a passion and intensity for God that I have not encountered often. It was an honor to share this weekend with brothers and sisters in Christ and get a small glimpse of not only what God can do in this city but a taste of heaven itself. For His glory and His renown!

  • Brother Louie,
    I can't thank God enough for what he allowed me to msee this weekend in Boston. He showed me that it is not about numbers but heart.I have been praying to him to reveal his will for me. You see, I just replaced the out going leader of our college class. I have truly enjoyed it, but questioned what a man of 50 could give to these beautiful young people. after seeing someone with my hair color give his whole heart to the Lord and these kids, I know that this is what the Lord wants for me to do. My Pastor and I are starting to plan for a very active presence on our local campuses. Once again, thank God and thank you for this experince.

    I am from New Hampshire I live about 2 hours from Boston and I have been a huge cheerleader haha for Passion and everything it stands for! I am still to young to attend a conference and was not able to be in Boston for Passion but I was keeping everyone in my prayers! And I will continue to pray for Passion and the students who attend at all the regionals! I listened to the podcast today and it was so great to hear about everything that went on in Boston it was so encouraging I was just so blessed to hear how God worked in that place and I believe he will continue to work in the hearts of New England! Sounds like it was a special moment! Thank you for doing the podcast it's a huge blessing to hear about it since I was not there! And wow that song you shared on it was really powerful haha I do hope a passion album comes out so I can replay that song over and over again : )it definitely gave me chills GOD IS AWESOME!!!

  • can't stop looking at the faces in this post and thanking God for what He has done. Boston you were prayed much for and we won't stop praying for you.

    this was prayed for you beloved NE'sterners:
    When the LORD brought back the captive ones of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter and our tongue with joyful shouting. Then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." The LORD has done great things for us; We are glad. Psalm 126:1-3

  • Passion Boston was amazing. Seeing the work God is doing through the Passion movement is an answered prayer in itself and is proof that our God is the powerful and living God. I'm so encouraged to hear that Passion is going around the country and around the world, because I know that at every stop, students will be convicted and changed forever to live their lives for the glory of our God.

  • Dear Louie and the Passion Band,
    I can't express what a blessing it was to have you here in the heart of New England. It was the first time in my 6 years of being in Boston that God has shown me such a tangible evidence that He is indeed moving in an enormous and profound way in this city. Being in a music conservatory, where many are highly 'spiritual' yet unaware of Jesus, I've often been discouraged about my vocation as a Christian musician in this postmodern setting. But God has shown me, as he did to so many others, that He is present in every corner and alley of New England as He is in other "more Christian" parts of the country. It was like God saying "Yes!" to Boston, "I love you, and will actively pursue you and transform you." God reminded me through Passion this weekend what a high and privileged calling it is for us to be ambassadors of Jesus in this intensely secular place. It is my new-found hope and excitement to live my life as an extension of Passion, like it never ended. Thank you God, for putting a new song in my mouth, and thank you guys so very much. Hoping for the next time you come back, and sending prayers Chicago's way!

  • Hey Louie,

    Just heard the new podcast for Passion::Boston. Thanks so much for the encouragement to our city and for the mention of our Collegiate Church Planting Community here in Boston. My heart resonates with yours but more importantly with God's that the "University Moment" is crucial. Major spiritual awakenings are notorious for breaking out on campuses and I have been praying for it here in Boston. I am confident that Passion was a spark to a new movement and fervor here in the city. For those reading this blog the website for our collegiate church planting community is ccpcboston.org and I know of several other great churches that would be willing to receive some of the overflow of our hearts from Passion. Now that the "event" is over, I am praying that students will join churches and join God in the "greater things that are yet to be done in this city."

  • I just have a quick question for anyone that reads this. My sister is leading worship at a new church on the seacoast of NH in a couple of weeks, and she feels that the church will be extremely encouraged by the new song Chris Tomlin did at the Passion conference. I'm not sure of the title, but i'm sure you all remember it -"Greater things have yet to come and greater things are still to be done in this city" - We have all of the basic music figured out, but we're having trouble remembering the words to the verses. We have some pieces of it, but It would be really great if we could combine our minds to remember what the rest of the verses are. "You're the God of this city" i believe is one line in a verse..we just can't remember! someone help!

    You're the King of these people
    You're the Hope to the hopeless

    Greater things are yet to come
    Greater things will still be done

    By Blogger allisonnewman, at 10/17/2007 12:23 PM  

  • Making love loud. That's what we did at Passion::Boston and it was such a privelege to be a part of a movement in our city... a movement out of apathy, out of the quicksand of self-focus, and into a gaze Heavenward - towards Home. Towards Love, Himself.

    It's been prophesied over the New England area that there is a dark covering, like a cloud, over this region. But as God moves and we allow His heart to become adjacent to ours, He will send forth beams of light through the cloud. Light that illuminates the mind and awakens our spirits, out of ignorance, out of the mire. And eyes will turn to the New England area to see the how the Lord has built a body of strong warriors, thinkers, and leaders. Streaks of light, bursting forth with Glory... putting the covering of darkness to shame.

    "For greater things have yet to come and greater things are still to be done in this city."

    Passion Team, thank you ... thank you so much for an amazing weekend. I still get goosebumps thinking about the way He is moving.

    Blessings and prayers are with you. If God allows, maybe we'll see each other on the World Tour :)

    .For His Renown.

  • The weekend was so great. Passion never makes me think 'wow, God is actually here now'. It actually makes me think 'God has been here the whole time'. I have been so discouraged here because it seems like no one wants to turn to God for anything. Sometimes even my heart can be hardened at different times.

    Being in that room and singing with anyone and hearing Louie talk about why we don't share our faith or have an explosion of faith here, I was awakened to what God is trying to do. He's trying to pull us out of the pit that we're in and have us share our story with others. You see people sharing with their loved ones in the Gospels, you can see Paul doing it in Acts. I want to see the greater things that are yet to come happen come through us for God in Boston.

    If anyone is still in Boston and is looking for a church, let's continue to experience God together. www.thechurchatthegate.com. It's time for Christians to come together and be used by God to take over this city.

  • Just finished listening to the Podcast. LoL (I loved the part with Charlie Hall...That was funny!)

    "For Greater things are yet to come and greater things are still to be done in this City"

    I'm not from Boston but from NYC (Go Mets and Yankees! JK).

    It was my FIRST! First time attending the Passion, FIRST time driving to Boston, FIRST time in Boston and FIRST time for the college group to attend Passion. It was a memorable first time! And it won't be my last going to one.

    I've heard the Podcasts and the messages from the January Passion and was wondering how I can bring the College group to Atlanta. But God is always wonderful and provided a way for us to go to one nearby (considering the cost and distance).

    I thank God for all of you and your hearts in serving Him! It is encouraging for all of us here to do the same.

    Btw, when you had an event here in NYC, some years ago and it was free, that was also an answered prayer. Because I often wonder why most of the Christian Concerts were always down South.

    Just amazing to see God's hand in all of this.

    I'll be praying for Chicago!

  • cool story - there was a point during the last session in Boston where Louie asked everyone who attended BU to raise their hand so that the students could pray for them. an usher (who was not attending the event but being paid to work there) was sitting in her assignment on the floor and her boss playfully made her raise her hand...but this is where it is cool. an entire prayer triangle went over to this usher, asked if they could pray for her, and put hands on her shoulder and began to pray. how cool is that! I (a volunteer at the event) was amazed at the boldness and faith these students had, but more importantly, hopeful that the Holy Spirit used these students and the the entire night to impress upon this usher she can live for something bigger than her.

    Students were reaching out before they had even left the building...how cool is that?!!!

    thank all of you for your prayers for boston/new england. it is a joy to be here & to see people joinging together in unity in our city.

    please be as fervent in prayer for chicago. they have more colleges, more students (in the hundreds of thousands), and are equally (if not more) spiritually desolate.

    we partner with another ministry there & you would not believe how dark that city is. though I can't speak for all collegiate ministries in that city, from what I understand, there is very very little presence there (per capita). Please feel free to correct me, but i think there is 0 (zero) paid staff for baptist collegiate ministry in chicago.

    However, I believe, just as God is at work here...he is present there. sing the anthem song of the passion tour over that city in your prayers.

    again, thank you so much for your continued prayers for boston. & CHICAGO, we are praying for you too.

    The Song some of you are looking for is "God of this city". Its by an up and coming worship band from Belfast, Northern Ireland and they are called Bluetree. They have just released it on their fist new album called "Greater Things" - found their site Bluetreeonline.com - What a fantastic song

    Being a native Chicagoan I am very excited to see and hear how God moves this weekend at the Sears Centre.

    Louie there will be 10 - 12 adult couples from my church's small group ministry gathering together tomorrow evening for a get together and we will be lifting up the Passion Chicago conference up in prayer.

    May you and the students have a fresh encounter with the King of the World this weekend.

  • I'm praying for Chicago (and all of Passions regionals) and for what God will do in hearts. I cannot forget the feeling that I've carried with me from Jan. Passion 07 in Atlanta. The initial feeling is the same and yet different-I pray that these students would allow their current lives to be obliterated for the sake of gaining Christ and understanding why we are here.
    Chicago will also be special because I am going to Brazil to serve for two years. I hope to attend Passion in Sao Paulo in 08. God is going to move in Chicago and the people of Brazil will feel the aftermath in a few short months. Amen and Amen! The invitations are going out in every language!!!!!

  • Thank you Jesus for setting us free!

    It became so evident last weekend that Jesus loves the city of Boston and His heartbeat is to raise up a generation that will hold up His banner of love for all the world to see.

    Thank you Mr. Giglio and the Passion team for bringing us back to the foot of the beautiful cross.

  • I prayed for you guys in Boston this past weekend and I am rejoicing with you at what our God has done and will do in your city and your region soon. Peace be with you! Let's all pray for Chicago as they have their gathering in 2 hours.

  • Passion was unreal.
    This was my first ever Passion experience and I couldn't have asked for it to have turned out better!
    Having it right in my back yard and having the focus on New England made my heart full of joy. I walked away only more hungry for God to wake up the people of NE and turn their faces to the Holy One.
    The first night when Chris saw the city song, I broke down at first sight of the lyrics. Then on Saturday night you, Mr. Giglio, instructed us to go into our triangles and pray for Boston and then come back and sing that song with everything we have left in us. I just cried out for the Lord to hear the cries of his people.

    John Piper's talk was amazing, and I find myself mulling over in my mind daily the truths he shared with us there. A challenge we face until the end... a constant battle of the flesh.

    Thank you for sharing Ashley's story again along with Anna's, Jacob's and Mike's emails. I have heard them before, but the points you made about seeing the BIG picture were incredible.
    Thanks Anna, Mike and Jacob for allowing him to share those.

    Praying Chicago has the same spirit of unity we had and bless you all.

    Thank you Mr. Giglio.

  • I've been to Chicago once, and it's definitely the "windy city"...

    Acts 2:2-4a, "Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit..."

    Praying for Passion Chicago, Mid-America, and the world...

  • It was amazing to be with you at Passion in Boston and thanks for supporting us in prayer for Sweden!! We're looking forward to have Passion in Stockholm and we know there are greater things to come in Stockholm!

  • Hey guys. I don't know if anyone will even be checking this blog any longer, but here it goes. I am graduating college in Arkansas in May 07. My wife and I have been praying for Boston since Passion 05. We want to come live and help on a Boston campus, but of course we have no contacts. Can you help us?

    If you are still looking for chords ... i know it has been a little while since you posted the comment. The band Bluetree has it up on their site. They have both an original and a Passion version.
