I enjoyed being at Passion 2013. Personally it gave me a lot to think about on many fronts. Since my job is Campus Ministry with Cru I had many thoughts about how to do campus ministry. Of course comparison between Cru and Passion doesn’t really work since our models of ministry are so different. Cru’s focus on the great commission through evangelism and discipleship and Passion’s focus on ending slavery. But yet we have much in common as well. We both work with college students and desire to give glory to God and celebrate Jesus who died for us so that we could be free and use the freedom He gave us to liberate our friends.
God spoke to me most clearly through Louie Giglio’s first message. The passage that stood out to me was Ephesians 3:20. “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more then all we ask or imagine according to His power that is at work within us.”
God allowed me to experience that verse in action on a summer mission trip to Zambia one summer where in one week God used a group of Cru students, Zambian Cru Staff and church members to start a campus ministry of 50 students in one week (Read the Post). During this talk I sensed that God wants to do immeasurably more though Cru at FSU. God strengthened me and encouraged me to continue to take steps of faith because he is with me and He can do immeasurably more through me than I can even ask or imagine. So leaving passion I am planning on working with all of his strength and excited to see all that God will do.
