For me, making the trek from St. Louis to Atlanta for the Passion Conference has been vital to maturing as a follower of Christ. When I’m standing in a massive stadium with tens of thousands of other believers my age, it makes any moment so much more powerful. That’s exactly what I experienced at Passion 2022.

Music ministry has been an important outreach tool at Missouri Baptist University for nearly four decades. As the different groups have come and gone, the longest lasting group is Spirit Wing, which strives to lead the campus and community in worship. The group began in the 1980s with an undergraduate student who is now the university’s president.
