Countdown to Passion Vancouver

It's officially less than ONE WEEK before I leave to travel to Vancouver. I am excited beyond belief!!! Can't wait to meet up with my friend, who I haven't seen since we met at the Atlanta Conference in April. I can't wait to meet and make new friends, to travel to a new city (and country for that matter)and, of course, can't wait to be a small part of something that is so much bigger than see God move in the lives of the students, volunteers, event organizers and myself is such an incredible gift and I pray that I am allowed the opportunity to continue to be a part of the Passion movement.

Since you all can't be there, I'm starting a "Countdown to Passion Vancouver" series of posts. Each day I'll post a video that will highlight something about the conferences. Some will be videos talking about what Passion is about, others may be brief snipets from talks at the conferences and others will be of the various worship leaders who participate.

First, a little about Passion...

The Purpose:
Passion exists to glorify God-uniting students in worship and prayer for spiritual awakening in this generation.

The Vision:
From the beginning Passion has been rooted in the confession of Isaiah 26:8: “Yes Lord, walking in the way of Your truth we wait eagerly for You, for Your name and renown are the desire of our souls.”

As a result, Passion seeks to gather college and university students across the nation and around the world to seek the face of God, asking Him to ignite in our souls a passionate pursuit of Jesus Christ and a desire to spread His fame to everyone on earth.

We believe God is calling out a generation of college students committed to the glory of His name in all things. God longs to bring awakening to every campus, mobilizing the students of today to finish the task of global evangelization in this generation. God is calling us out for this purpose, in this moment, for His renown.

For more information on their history, click on the title of this blog and it will take you to the Passion Website.

Until tomorrow, here are a couple of videos. One is a brief synopsis of Passion and the other was a video taken by a student at the opening of the Atlanta Passion Conference this past April. Enjoy!
