Passion 07 Welcomes Over 23,000 To Atlanta
January 2, 2007 at 8:58 AM (PT)
PASSION 07 welcomed over 22,000 students and 1,200 volunteers to its annual gathering in downtown ATLANTA at the PHILIPS ARENA and GEORGIA WORLD CONGRESS CENTER.
More than being led by speakers and artist-worshipers like CHRIS TOMLIN, DAVID CROWDER BAND and MATT REDMAN throughout PASSION 07, students will have the opportunity to impact lives worldwide through PASSION 07’s DO SOMETHING NOW campaign. The campaign kicked off through TOUCH ATLANTA as students brought towels and a pair of socks as they arrived to registration to provide 20,000-plus items for ATLANTA'S homeless.
“These people may not know anything about Passion, but we want them to know that followers of Christ have been here,” said PASSION CONFERENCES founder/director LOUIE GIGLIO.
The PASSION 07 main sessions will be posted online at www.268generation.com at the conclusion of each session and will be available online for 24 hours so that anyone with Internet access can join with those registered for the gathering.
