Next Location: Washington D.C. - March 31st, 2018






4 Cities. 3. Regions. 2. Days. 1 mission – To empower, equip and educate entrepreneurial millennials of faith!

The Passion is Pursuit Conference is the ONLY entertainment and media business conference for entrepreneurial millennials of faith. This two-day experience will be filled with life-changing workshops, panel discussions, keynote presentations, a vendor market, professional networking, live entertainment, and so much more! You will “Go, Grow, & Glow!” in your purpose as we inspire, inform, and ignite your inner Passioneer.

What is a Passioneer?

The better question is “who?” and that who is you! Founder of the Passion is Pursuit Conference, Cassondra Lenoir, coined the term. She also created the following definition for passion. “Passion is the driving force in one’s life. It’s the thing that keeps you dedicated, motivated, and focused in striving to achieve greatness.” For Cassondra, a pioneer is defined as a person who is among the first to explore or settle in a new space – whether physically, mentally, spiritually, relationally, or financially. Ultimately, a Passioneer is someone who through pursuing their passions charters new territory. It isn’t necessarily unchartered territory, but they are the first of their kind to do it – be it, the first in their family, friends, generation, etc. Passioneers pretty much figure out which route to take through life’s journey by following the burning desire from within. Passioneers understand that impossible is nothing. They continuously turn their can’ts into cans, dreams into plans, and visions into their reality because they understand that the proof of PASSION IS PURSUIT. And most importantly, once Passioneers arrive to this new space, they then prepare the way for others to follow.
