20 years of PASSION

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.

God Bless,
Dave

 

Free discipleship Bible study booklet

I just wanted to share a discipleship Bible study booklet I wrote a few years ago. I wrote this because in my ministry work a lot of people were coming to Christ and I wanted to give them a good foundation to begin on.

This simple booklet was designed to take people through one on one or in a small group. It has 10 studies using Bible verses that look at assurance of salvation, the Bible, prayer, church, serving God, sharing your faith, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and what God wants you to do with your life.

I have taken indiduals through it, small groups and preached it in church as a series. Although a lot of people have downloaded it from my website and used it alone, it works best when you can take people through and answer questions they may have.

If you are interested you can find it here for free.

God Bless,

Dave
