Here are three updates from the world of Passion, a college ministry that continues to influence our field perhaps more than any other single ministry. (My most recent Passion experience really helped me understand them even better; read my thoughts on that here.)
Passion City Church coming soon.
As you may be well aware, the Passion City Church plant is beginning its “soft start” on February 15th. They have already had to open a second service, so now they’re meeting at 4:45 and 7pm that Sunday. Based on what their site is saying, it truly does look like they plan on using the next several months like many church plants do… with less-than-weekly meetings as they build a vision, a core, and an organization – while trying to find a permanent location, as well.
Passion2010 kicking off.
February 16th, registration opens for the next big Passion event, Passion2010 in Atlanta (early next January). They’re actually doing an hour-and-a-half webcast February 16th to get things going, which could be kinda fun. The first 1000 registered for Passion2010 get to attend for a very low $99, with other registrations only $129 until April 1st. So if you think you might want to take students, now might be the time to sign up.
Passion connecting even better.
I had the chance to connect earlier this week with a guy involved in Passion in a very important new way. His job has him connecting with college ministers ALL OVER in order to help Passion’s work better complement what college ministries are doing “on the ground.” I’ll keep you posted as I learn more about this new initiative, but it was a superb conversation.
