I’m sitting around a huge table today in the Georgia World Congress Center with some of the most amazing people in the world. Their names are not Tomlin, Moore, Crowder, Redman, Giglio, Piper, or Hall, but they are just as vital to the process of Passion 07 as anyone you have heard of. They are our Volunteer Team Leaders and our Passion/sixsteps Staff/Team (see beautiful pic), and they are doing a phenomenal job making sure everything is in place to insure that you have the best possible experience in Atlanta.
Our Team Leaders, people with full time jobs who devote a chunk of their year to building the guts of the event and lead the volunteer teams in Atlanta, are here for three days of final preparations. With them, over 1000 men and women will form the volunteer teams that serve you while you are here.
Looking around the table right now: Jennifer, Daniele, Abbie, Sally, Paige, Radford, Emily H, Kristen, Mike, Susanne, Katey, Aaron, Vicky, Mike, Misty, Amanda, Gina, Emily V, Lori, Carrie, Jonathan, Danielle, Eddie, Jay, Shannon, Christina, Cheryl, Masi, Scot, Lindsay, Garret, Rick, Jim, Jerome, Brandon, Jon, Lauren, Jake, Shelley. Not here, but on the way, Tague, Lisa, Todd, Christi.
I know it’s not all that glamorous, but these guys need to know you are surrounding them with your prayers. Pick one and hold them up…and let’s see a lot of comments today for those who are sacrificing so much to make Passion 07 happen.
Father, thank You for incredible devotion by so many people who believe in the vision of Passion and want to serve in Your name. Give them strength and inspiration for the final push to Atlanta…and sweep them into the wave of what you’re doing in the hearts of students in this generation. For Jesus, Amen.
