If you have any doubts as to whether God is alive and still relevant to today’s young adult generation, allow Passion Conference 2016 to enlighten you with a resounding YES!

Taking place January 2-4 in the Philips Arena and the Infinite Energy Center in Atlanta, Georgia, and the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, 40,000+ college students from across the nation gathered in droves to worship Jesus Christ, donate to issues of social injustice, and be uplifted in their faith.

Founded in 1995 and led by Pastor Louie Giglio of Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia, the Passion movement roots its faith in Isaiah 26:8 and exists to “glorify God by uniting students in worship, prayer and justice for spiritual awakening in this generation.

The Christian event was not just about top ranked music artist or guest speakers – but the 18-25 year old attendees, who are typically referred to as “broke college students”, raised more than $785,000! The philanthropic spirit of the event will reach all the way to war-torn Syria to build a hospital for at-risk mothers and children, and provide socks and towels to homeless shelters throughout the local metropolitan area.

This, Team, is how you make the name of Jesus GREAT!
