People of Passion

The early followers of Jesus were called ‘people of the way’. This was long before the term ‘Christian’ was coined. Perhaps it came from Jesus’ words ‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life’ (John 14:6)People of Passion* is here to help you on your way, following Jesus, The Way. It was developed by Doug Utley, Barbara Brown and Kathie Clarke from the HighQuest discipleship series ( – used with permission). People of Passion comes with a General Introduction (essential reading, scroll to bottom of the page) followed by each volume to use in your group.

People of Passion is a way of maintaining your passion for God and His growing Kingdom for the rest of your life.

The People of Passion resource is for a group of four to six people who maintain confidentiality and are listening to God as they read the scriptures daily to discern what God is saying to them as individuals and as a group. The group would meet weekly to share and discuss, pray with one another and hold each other to be faithful in this journey.

The goals of People of Passion are to know God deeply, reflect Christ naturally and share Christ intentionally.

Sample of a weekly reading.

There are three volumes (of three units) of scripture readings, each of 10-12 weeks, which amplify each goal.

The first two units, Knowing God Deeply and Reflecting Christ Naturally, are now available. Once each volume has been released, you will find the full list below.
