November 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of PASSION Australia. It some ways it seems to have flown by, and it other ways it seems forever.
I can still remember being in a period of personal revival. My prayer times had been increasing and my love for the Lord was going up and up. I just loved worshipping and serving Him.
It was during a time of prayer that I asked for a ministry that would reach people for Christ. At the time I have been helping with my church youth group and preaching in church, but I felt like God had more for me, so I asked.
One morning God answered my prayer and He started to speak to me about a ministry which would reach people for Christ and help Christians share their faith. PASSION Australia was born.
At first I just got the vision, then I asked for a name. God said, “PASSION Australia”. Then I asked if the letters could stand for something. He said, “Preaching And Saving Souls In Our Nation”.
Over the years PASSION has been about reaching people for Christ and many people have come to Christ as a result of our outreach work. We have also helped many Christians share their faith and encourage them on their journey of faith and life in Christ through churches and through this website.
To date we have had millions of visitors to our website and our resources had been downloaded tens of thousands of times. Our discipleship booklet is biggest download and has been translated into a number of languages. Some churches use it as their primary discipleship tool for brand new Christians.
So where to from now? Well that is the topic of a lot of prayer at the moment. I am expecting it to continue. But as always, God is the one who has the first and last say on everything we do.
