More than 20,000 college students are expected to gather in Atlanta Jan. 1-4 for Passion 07. More than 17,000 students from 24 countries have already registered for the four-day event. The conference will feature worship leaders such as Chris Tomlin and David Crowder, as well as, teachings and prayer times. “Thousands of students will merge from across the nation and around the world to sink their teeth into the confession of Isaiah 26:8,” said Louie Giglio, who founded the Passion conferences in 1995. “First wrapping our hearts around what it means to be satisfied in Christ, we want to echo the fame of the Satisfier in everything we do. Making our lives count for what matters most is a worthy goal but a costly proposition, one that must be thoroughly absorbed and embraced if our lives are going to be shaped for His renown.” Registration for the 2007 event is growing faster than for the 2006 conference, which convened 18,000 college students from all 50 states, 1,100 campuses and 20 countries.
