"For years, the Passion movement has been ahead of the curve, delivering worship music that connects. With Passion: Salvation’s Tide Is Rising, listeners will find that this is still the case."

"Passion has probably never sounded better to the ears."

During Passion 2016, students donated $811,813 to help construct a hospital in war-torn Syria. Once completed, the hospital will serve 12,000 women and children each year and will offer one of the few neonatal intensive care units in the country. Also making an impact locally, students filled bins with thousands of towels and socks - two of the most needed items at homeless shelters - upon arrival at each Passion 2016 location. This year, Atlanta’s City of Refuge and Houston’s Star of Hope received the needed items.
Passion: Salvation's Tide Is Rising is available now.
