The 2017 Passion Conference at the Georgia Dome is expected to attract 50,000 young adults from 1,500 universities and 47 countries.
The annual massive concert/revival, helmed by Pastor Louie Giglio, founder of the Passion Movement and pastor of Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia, will be taking place next month and it’s one of the biggest religious gatherings in the nation. The three-day conference is attended by students mostly between the age of 18 to 25 years old.
“God wants the people of these cities to feel lifted by a gathering of this size,” Giglio said in a statement ahead of the event.
Attendees of the conference are also asked to each bring a towel and a pair of socks to be donated to local homeless shelters in the U.S.
The focus of the Passion Conference, founded in 1997, is to unite “students in worship and prayer for spiritual awakening in this generation.” The theme verse is from Isaiah 26:8, “Yes Lord, walking in the way of Your truth we wait eagerly for You, for Your name and renown are the desire of our souls.”
“While we host large gatherings, Passion is more than a conference. More than an event. More than a feeling. Passion is you and me saying goodbye to lesser things and saying yes to Jesus, the One whose name is above every name,” the Passion Conference says on the event’s website.
“Hundreds of thousands of college-aged young people have come together in stadiums and arenas across the USA and around the globe to worship Jesus, breathe in His presence, be shaped by the His Word and join hands to extend His mercy and grace to the world.”
