Yes. High school seniors are welcome to attend Passion 2018, even if they are not yet 18 years old. High school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are asked not to attend Passion 2018 until they are 18 years old or seniors in high school.
If you are the leader of a group of students attending Passion 2018, you may purchase a ticket to attend. If you are not a leader, you are invited to apply to serve as a Door Holder. Door Holder applications are available here.

A boxed lunch will be served on Tuesday. Due to a wide range of food allergies and dietary restrictions, we are unable to accommodate special requests regarding lunch. However, once lunch has been served to all attendees, anyone needing to purchase other food will be released to do so.
Deaf interpretation is available upon request. Please complete this form to request interpretation and our team will contact you in December with more details.
The Passion 2018 schedule is packed with amazing content, worship and teaching, and as a result, the schedule does not allow for Community Groups this year.
We appreciate your interest; however, we do not offer exhibitor space at our gatherings.
We do not allow professional cameras (DSLR or with a detachable lens), flash photography, or video or audio recordings during Main Sessions, as we desire that everyone be free from distraction to experience Passion 2018.
Passion 2018 is completely full in all three locations and tickets are no longer available for purchase. We are working on a way for as many as possible to be part of Passion 2018, so stay tuned on social media for more information on what’s to come!

We use the term “Door Holder” instead of the word “volunteer.” The term is borrowed from Psalm 84:10, which speaks of being a door keeper in the house of God. Door Holders at Passion 2018 are individuals who have experienced God’s glory and now want to hold the doors to allow others to enter in. This is the heart and attitude we want our Door Holders to assume – one of service in preparing the way for others to have a powerful experience with Jesus. Door Holder is a term that encompasses all who serve at Passion gatherings. All volunteers are considered Door Holders, not just those on our Touch team who hold physical doors.
You may apply to be a Door Holder if you are over the age of 25. For the gathering to be possible, we need Door Holders who are willing to serve throughout the entire gathering in various roles.
We want students to be able to fully experience Passion 2018. Door Holders work hard behind the scenes throughout the entire gathering, serving the students who are participating; therefore, we ask all 18-25 year olds to attend Passion 2018.
The first step to becoming a Door Holder at Passion 2018 is to complete the application. Door Holder applications are available here.
You will not need to purchase a ticket to serve at Passion 2018, but Door Holders are responsible for their own travel expenses and meals, with the exception of lunch on Tuesday, which will be provided for Door Holders and attendees.
Your schedule for Passion 2018 will depend on your specific team assignment, which will be communicated by your Team Lead. You should be prepared to be available to serve throughout the entire gathering.
We realize that emergencies sometimes arise and alter your availability to serve. If you apply and later find out that you cannot serve, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can fill your position. Teams experience significant challenges if notice is not given, so the earlier you can let us know, the better.
Passion 2018 is designed for college students, high school seniors, and their leaders. If you are a college pastor, you and your students will benefit most from you participating in the gathering with them and we would encourage you to register as a leader.
Serving at Passion 2018 does not allow for much participation in the gathering itself. Please come willing to serve and fully aware that there may not be time to attend.
Door Holders are not utilized in these areas; however, if you are 26 or older, we’d love for you to apply to serve on another Door Holder team!
We encourage Door Holders to stay near the venue due to the full schedule of Passion 2018. We have negotiated discounted rates for Passion Door Holders in nearby hotels, which are listed in the email you receive once your Door Holder application has been processed. We strongly advise that you wait to make any non-refundable travel plans until you receive your team assignment.
A boxed lunch will be provided for Door Holders on Tuesday of Passion 2018. Due to a wide range of food allergies and dietary restrictions, we are unable to accommodate special requests regarding lunch. However, once lunch has been served to attendees, anyone needing to purchase other food will be released to do so.
You will need to arrive in time for a mandatory Door Holder meeting on January 1 at 9am.
If you are able to serve before January 1, we will be preparing the environments for students and it will take several days to fully set up for Passion 2018. If you would like to help with load-in, please indicate the days you are available prior to January 1 on your application.
When the gathering ends, our teams begin breaking down the different environments. We ask that all Door Holders be available until 5pm on January 3 to assist with load-out.
