Uncommon Sports Group seeks to develop Christ-centered future leaders of the college and pro sport industry. One way that USG develops future leaders of sport is by funding its members to attend conferences, conventions, and events that develop them as followers of Christ and sport industry professionals. USG funded a member with the opportunity to attend the Passion Conference in Atlanta, GA, on January 3-5. Passion offers Christians between the ages of 18-25 an opportunity to gather alongside thousands of their peers to worship through music and grow through an impactful lineup of speakers.
Nathan Doremus attended the convention this past week. He is presently a Ticket Office Graduate Assistant at Liberty University. Below is Nate's testimony on his experience at Passion 2024:
"First off, I would like to start by saying thank you to USG for funding my trip to Passion 24. It was truly an eye-opening experience. As crossover season has finally died down in the collegiate sport industry it was nice to get my relationship with the Lord moving in the right direction again. I went working the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl to, within 12 hours, being on a flight to Atlanta for Passion. The days were long, and the countess nights of no sleep had me feeling drained, but getting to worship the Lord alongside 55,000+ individuals my age was something that I could not put into words. The Lord was definitely present in the moment, and the worship was unmatched while I was there. It truly re-ignited the flame and my love for the Lord that had a tendency to dwindle while working crossover season and multiple events a day. It was awesome to hear all of the great speakers who are all in different stages with their walks of faith. Jonathan Pokluda and Levi Lusko killed it and Sadie Robertson summing up the whole Bible in 25 minutes was something that will leave you speechless in the moment. The travel and days were long but I wouldn’t change the experience for anything."
It is encouraging to see that Nate was impacted in his walk with Christ at Passion. We are grateful for his testimony!
