Attending a Passion Conference one of the things in my bucket list.
Every year the Passion Conference gets bigger, and this event is responsible for some of the most groundbreaking music. Besides the music Passion Movement led by the Atlanta-based pastor, Louie Giglio sees over 20 million college students across the globe awaken to the reality of an omnipotent and glorious Creator. Millions of young people mostly students from across the globe have joined the Passion movement, united across ministry and denominational lines, to seek the face of God in worship and prayer at nine conferences, four world tours and multiple one-day and regional events. Passion is also lending its voice and resources to end modern day slavery.
Following the yearly Passion event, a musical album which features recording/performances from the event is usually released. These records over the years have housed hits and today’s household Christian songs. The good folks of Passion decided to put together a compilation; an Essential Collection of all the remarkable and soul-stirring music performed at the events over the years. The best part is that as it turns out 90% of the songs from the albums ended up being hits, so the Essential Collection is basically a collection of hits.
The Essential Collection CD + DVD box set houses 15 tunes and seven musical videos from Passion, including Chris Tomlin, Kristian Stanfill, Matt Redman, David Crowder*Band, Christy Nockels and Charlie Hall. It also notably features four talks from founder Louie Giglio, bringing together the best representation of the multi-decade impact the Passion Conferences have had on a generation of 18-25-year-olds across the country and internationally.
Passion: The Essential Collection is home to some of the most remarkable worship songs of this generation. Tunes like Chris Tomlin’s “My God,” “Holy Is The Lord,” Whom Shall I Fear, and “How Great Is Our God.” Chris Tomlin isn’t the only act featured, there is Crowder’s soul-stirring performance of “How Loves Me,” Matt Redman anthemic “10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord),” Christy Nockels “Waiting Here For You,” and a host of other performances.
The Essential Collection also comes with a DVD that features music video and talks from lead pastor Louie Giglio himself.
The collection houses both vertical worship tunes, inspiring videos/talks which are though-provocative, and poignant. It is an excellent compilation of all the great music one may have missed. The Passion Movement has impacted millions of lives not just with their generous donations towards the abolishing of modern day slavery but also through the great music which is usually introduced at this gathering.
Passion: The Essential Collection is just about the perfect musical gift anyone can give to their family, friends, and loved ones especially those who aren’t exactly Christian music fans. However, for people who are hardcore fans of Christian music the record will serves as a reminder of all the powerful spiritual encounters experienced in the past while worshiping to these tunes.
And because we love you all we want to giveaway a few copies of this awesome collection to ChurchMag readers.
