Passion to Perform at Lee Day U-Church



Passion in Concert during Lee Day

Lee University will welcome Passion to perform during Lee Day on Friday, April 6, at 8 p.m. in the Walker Arena as part of the Lee U-Church concert series. 

“This year, U-Church is excited to welcome Passion to Lee Day for a worship event that will be the perfect conclusion to Friday’s activities,” said Phil Cook, vice president for enrollment. “Having U-Church during Lee Day has provided another opportunity for prospective students and their families to experience firsthand why Lee continues to be one of the leading Christ-centered liberal arts universities in the country.”

Passion is rooted in the Passion movement, which was started in 1997 with the mission of calling college students across the globe to “live for what matters most.” Passion aims to glorify God by uniting students in worship, prayer, and justice to bring spiritual awakening. The band is currently led by Kristian Stanfill, Brett Younker, and Melodie Malone.

The band has teamed up with worship leaders such as David Crowder, Matt Redman, and Chris Tomlin to write, record, and lead worship together.

Passion is known for its chart-topping singles like “How Great Is Our God,” “One Thing Remains,” “Even So Come,” and “God of This City,” among others. The band has won four Dove Awards.

“For many years, Lee Day has been the most successful recruitment event on the Lee University campus and we expect that to be the case again this April,” said Cook. “In 2016, Lee reestablished a tradition from the 1980’s by inviting Christian artists to be a part of the Lee Day weekend.”

Lee Day is a weekend preview event for prospective students and parents that showcases life at Lee, academics, athletics, and more. For more information about Lee Day or to register, visit http://www.leeuniversity.edu/lee-day/ or call 423-614-8500.
