By the Lord’s blessing, the P4C audios are coming to you for download much sooner this year then they did last. We are excited to make available these audio downloads [free of charge] for those who could not attend this year or if you did attend to continually reap the incredibly, rich Biblical teaching that was given at this year’s Passion4Christ Summit. God truly did a work among us. The worship of God was heavenly. The fellowship of his people sweet. The word of God truly life changing. We hope you continue to enjoy and be encouraged by these messages for years to come. Oh, and did we mention that if you fall into the category of a P4C attendee, we would like to see you there next year [October 26-30,2012]?
Daniel CavanaughNote: On the message ‘Doctrine Denied’, there is a little feedback at the beginning of the message for about 30 sec. We were unable to get rid of that noise. We do apologize and hope you enjoy the messages all the same.
How does one describe the work and blessing of God? On the one hand there is the danger of miss-stating and drawing to much attention to oneself. On the other, one can underestimate and fail to give God all the glory He so much deserves. With those cautions in mind, I will attempt to describe the blessings of Passion4Christ Summit 2010.
The Summit is a great responsibility and hard work. But it is blessed work. We could not believe that this year’s Summit could be as good as last year, but our great God showed us otherwise. This year’s Summit had eleven fewer attendees. Being human, we saw this as a negative. But the reduction did not impact the summit in a negative way. In spite of our weakness and short sightedness, God blessed in an incredible way by bringing us a wonderful group of Christian singles, whose hearts were ready to worship and hear from God. It was a privilege for our family to work again with a volunteer staff that makes things happen. It was our joy to work with Dewey Novotny and Dave Cavanaugh to minister the word. God blessed each message, and the people were so receptive. Our musicians [worship team] worked wonderfully together and there was a spirit of worship throughout the week. The singing was almost overwhelming in its participation, volume, and beauty. Though I was struggling with laryngitis; I could not restrain myself from participating. The staff at Pleasant Hill was in their office below us and commented on what a blessing it was to them.
God also led in the preparation and preaching of all the messages as evidenced by how they worked together to expound the theme “The Sacred Rhythm”. All were encouraged to have regular encounters with God, to think upon and thank Him for the evidences of His mercy and grace, and to walk with an awareness of His holy presence as we make Him known to our unholy world.
Community Groups met each morning to discuss the topics, increasing the interest and attentiveness. Breakout sessions were led by Pam Cavanaugh, Dewey Novotny, and a new addition Jeff and Leah Erickson who shared on the importance of healthy/Godly relationships within the body of Christ. Jeff and Leah did this in addition to overseeing the preparations of the splendid meals we all enjoyed.
We enjoyed two lovely theme dinners: a casual event to a “50’s Diner” and a formal occasion; an “Old Fashion Christmas” which took us back to the days of Dicken’s and Scrooge.
All in all, the week was a time of good Christian fellowship, emotional and physical refreshment, and spiritual enrichment. We thank our Lord for the privilege of being with and working with such lovely Christian brothers and sisters in Christ. We are also please to announce the dates for Passion4Christ Summit 2011 which will be October 26-30. We hope to see you there!
To Him be Alone the Glory,
What incredible times of worship in song we had together at this year’s Passion4Christ Summit. Thanks so much to Josh Rodriguez, Chelsea Barrios, and Rachel Jorgensen for their incredibly gifted and spirit filled leading of our worship in song. The Lord truly worked through this worship team. He led through them to help us express the glory of Christ. What a joy it was at times to just stop and listen to the group sing. It was truly amazing, glorious, and Christ exalting. It simply does not get any better than that. Just think of what it is going to be like in heaven.
Many have asked if we could make available a list of the worship music that was sung at this year’s Summit. In so doing, we thought we would make it available to all our readers. You will find listed below each song [some with their composer/writer]. Hope you enjoy and share with others that you may build one another up in “psalms and hymns and spiritual songs” [Eph. 5:19]
