Our Story

How it all started...

Pastors Lonnie & Colleen Hardy have pastored at Passion Church in Cameron since 2012. They have a driving passion for Godly intimacy and have carved a path through traditional religious thinking for over 35 years without compromising God’s word, or a concern for the lost.
Their anointed ministry was forged in cold hospitals, damp prisons and musty nursing homes. It has come to life on concert stages, church sanctuaries, counseling rooms and dark alleyways. If you can’t find them in the pulpit, you might find them with their arms around a drug addict somewhere!
Throughout their ministry, Lonnie and Colleen have modeled passionate worship and established the pace for righteous living. They truly demonstrate love to people without bending to the immense social pressures and other ungodly agendas.

At the core of their ministry is a desire to disciple believers and reach the unsaved with the gospel of Jesus Christ. They can’t wait to train others to minister to their friends, neighbors and loved ones. It might be said, they are leaders who work best, side-by-side, with their sleeves rolled up and they train others to do the same.

While Lonnie and Colleen are both rather unassuming with a simple country charm, they preach with great passion and intensity. They always bring something unique to the table. They are old enough to give parental advice and young enough to have some fun.

Over the years, Lonnie and Colleen have held every position in church from cleaning the toilets all the way to leading a large crowd. Their ministry has spanned massive music arenas all the way to humble third world mission outposts.

Expanding the vision...

Education has become an extension to our vision. There is a growing need in our region for education reformation and at Passion Church we are answering the call. In 2023 we launched Cameron Christian Academy.

Why CCA?
We believe that a Classical Christian education will allow students to learn and grow in a Christ centered environment that will both challenge and shape them to be who God created them to uniquely be. We believe our children deserve the option to have a Christ centered learning environment which is why we have brought CCA to this community.

Where we are headed...

Vision for Renewing Christianity and Stirring up Revival in God's people: A Journey Towards Authenticity and Compassion

In envisioning the reform of compromised Christianity, our aim is to restore the essence of the teachings of Jesus Christ and rediscover the core values of love, compassion, and humility. This vision seeks to address areas where Christianity may have deviated from its original message and embrace a renewed commitment to authenticity, inclusivity, and social justice.
