For the first time ever, Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) will bring to television all the highlights from the Passion Conference, one of the nation’s largest annual Christian collegiate gatherings, which brings together tens of thousands of college students and young people from across America to help them find their passion and purpose in loving Jesus.

Popular Atlanta pastor Louie Giglio kicked off the first Passion Conference in 1997 with a few thousand college students in Austin,Texas, and since then millions of young people have been filling stadiums and arenas across America and around the globe for exciting worship, life-changing teaching, and unforgettable fellowship.

This year Christian television leader TBN was on hand to catch all the excitement of the Passion 2017 Conference as over 50,000 enthusiastic young people packed Atlanta’s Georgia Dome for cutting-edge worship from award-winning artists like Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, and the Passion worship band, and to be impacted by such noted Christian speakers as John Piper, Beth Moore, Christine Caine, Levi Lusko, and Louie Giglio.

Tune in to TBN nightly, February 20, 21, 23, and 24, at 8 p.m. EST / 8 p.m. PST for all the highlights from this gathering that is helping to change the hearts and futures of an entire generation.

Passion 2017 – Session 1

“Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.”   

Isaiah 26:8

Passion held its first conference in Austin, TX on January 1-4, 1997. That event drew around 2,000 students. Louie and Shelley Giglio are the founders of the Passion movement that seeks to see spiritual awakening on college campuses and to see many students to come to know Christ. Several national gatherings, OneDay events and tours would follow along with worship recordings and DVDs. I was introduced to Passion in 2007 (their 10 year anniversary) by the Pastor of my young adult group at that time. He flew over 30 of us to Atlanta, GA for their 4 day gathering at Philips Arena and the Georgia World Congress Center (over 22,000 students in attendance). I was newly single and just went on my first mission trip to Belize. I was pondering God’s will and direction for my life after my 9 year marriage ended. After participating in the “Do Something Now” campaign which raised $1.5 million dollars for global ministries on six continents and listening to Louie Giglio’s message about a party for the nations, I started to see some clarity in God’s calling for me. Passion ’07 absolutely change my life forever.

Fast forward to 2017 and it is now the 20th anniversary of the Passion conferences. In that time I have attended gatherings in 2010, 2013, 2015, a regional gathering in 2008 and a concert on the Take it All tour. Each one of these events were special to me and contributed to me following God’s will for my life. Passion 2013 in the Georgia Dome (over 60,000 students!) was life changing because of the launch of End It Movement  X – an awareness campaign that seeks to abolish modern-day slavery and sex trafficking. I am so incredibly thankful to the faithfulness of the Giglio’s and their staff for pouring into me through these amazing gatherings. I prayed about it and made the decision to attend one more gathering in the soon-to-be demolished Georgia Dome. This time I felt I needed to give back by being a door holder. Door holders are the hundreds of volunteers that serve on different teams such as community groups, logistics and registration. They are the glue that holds these Passion gatherings together. I’m not only excited to being a part of serving these students but also being a part of this 20 anniversary gathering of Passion.

“Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.” 

 Psalm 84:10

But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.

Psalms 5:11-12

Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.

Isaiah 43:18-19
