January 9, 2007 at 7:15 AM (PT)
Final numbers are in from PASSION 07 in ATLANTA last week. The conference challenged college students to raise $500,000 for global aid through its “DO SOMETHING NOW” campaign. In the end students pledged over $700,000 to various global initiatives.
PASSION CONFERENCES founder/director LOUIE GIGLIO also announced that in place of one four-day conference in JANUARY 2008, PASSION CONFERENCES is planning smaller gatherings similar to the four-day conference format in cities around the U.S. for fall 2007 and early winter 2008, as well as launching out to 20 cities in 15 nations in late spring 2008.
At the opening of the gathering on MONDAY, JANUARY 1, the tally showed that 49 U.S. states were represented at PASSION 07, all but SOUTH DAKOTA. As GIGLIO led students in prayer for college campuses during WEDNESDAY evening's General Session, it came to the gathering’s attention that one student from SOUTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY, NICK, did make it to PASSION 07, confirming that all 50 states were represented.
