Passion is Powerful is an innovative music & arts leadership academy for girls in Redding, CA. The vision for Passion is Powerful Academy is to empower girls in their leadership skills & creativity. Our inaugural program IGNITE is designed to expose young girls to all the arts, to challenge them to use their unique gifts to contribute to the team challenges based around the arts, and to draw out a desire in them to use their creativity to make a difference in the world. Our long-term dream for the academy is to build out a full repertoire of arts elective classes from music, creative writing, visual arts, performing arts, culinary arts, creative writing, fashion and more!
We believe that God is an artist. He created us to be creative and to use our creativity to bring His kingdom to earth. When we partner with the Holy Spirit in our artistic expression, we create things that change the world around us in the best way. We have an opportunity to raise our girls with the understanding that their gifts, abilities, beauty, creative voice, and powerful ideas were put in them by design by God their creator. What they create with God is always unto a purpose; art is meant to serve, inspire, lead, empower, educate, and equip believers, as well as reach the lost, hungry, broken and forgotten people in the world.
God created us with a dream in our hearts and as we pursue him, his fire stirs in us the passion to powerfully pursue our destiny.
When we serve others with our gifts & creativity, we live in alignment with the design God has for our life, and this brings joy & purpose.
We are curious about life and God's creation. We ask the Holy Spirit to help us with empathy, forgiveness, and strategies for love in tough situations.
We are patient and practice faith while God develops our character through situations & friendships that challenge us.
We are pure because Jesus makes us pure. We make choices that protect our body, mind and heart from being polluted by sin, temptation, anger & unforgiveness.
We take risks, make mistakes, and get messy as we try new things and discover the process of making things beautiful.
True leadership means knowing how to use our words powerfully with bold love, respecting boundaries (our own and others') and serving the greater good.
We love how God made us. God didn't make mistakes when he formed our body, shape, emotions, and beauty. We are perfect in his eyes & are always being perfected according to His love.
