About the Organization:
Rooted in the confession of Isaiah 26:8, Passion was birthed to glorify God by uniting students in worship, prayer and justice for spiritual awakening in this generation.
From its start in 1995, the Passion movement had a singular mission—calling students from campuses across the nation and around the world to live for what matters most. For us, what matters most is the name and renown of Jesus. We believe in this generation and are watching God use them to change the climate of faith around the globe.
Since the first gathering in 1997, Passion has had the privilege of encountering millions of 18-25 year olds, a sea of young people whose lives have been transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit. Their voices are getting louder as they rise, united as a generation, bringing hope and light to the world.
Since 2007, believing worship + justice are two sides of the same coin, students at Passion have generously given over $18 million to 70 amazing partner organizations around the world.
Passion is more than music. More than events. Passion is a generation living for His Name.
Born out of the Passion Movement, Passion City Church began with a stirring in the hearts of Louie and Shelley Giglio for the local church. They sought to plant a local community of faith impacted and informed by the DNA of Passion.
With a small team of people, that vision took flight in 2008, as small gatherings began in homes throughout Atlanta. The desire was to foster a family of believers connected by a common faith, on mission in the city and the world to amplify the name of Jesus.
And that’s exactly what happened. Our first gathering was held on February 15, 2009, in Atlanta at The Tabernacle. From there, God faithfully provided, as our little tribe met at various locations all over the city of Atlanta, until we landed in our first permanent gathering site at 515 Garson Drive.
Now meeting in two locations in Atlanta and a third location in Washington, D.C., Passion City Church remains a place where the gospel is central, and Jesus is always the lead story. We are a Jesus church and want to gather in worship and scatter to shine His light and love throughout the city and beyond.
We are: for God. for people. for the city. for the world.
In addition to Passion Conferences and Passion City Church, the Passion Movement also includes sixstepsrecords, our record label; Passion Publishing, our publishing house; Passion Global Institute, our seminary formed in partnership with Dallas Theological Seminary; and Passion Resources, our resources arm.

About the Location:
Atlanta is the ninth largest metropolitan area in the U.S. with 5.8 million residents and is expected to be home to more than 8 million people within 30 years, making it the sixth largest metro area in the U.S. It is considered to be a top business city and a primary transportation hub of the Southeastern U.S. The city contains the world headquarters of corporations such as Coca-Cola, Home Depot, UPS, Delta Air Lines, Turner Broadcasting and Mercedes-Benz, North America.
Although traditional Southern culture is part of Atlanta's cultural fabric, it's mostly the backdrop to one of the nation's leading international cities. This unique cultural combination reveals itself at the High Museum of Art, the bohemian shops of Little Five Points, and the multi-cultural dining choices found along Buford Highway.
Atlanta also hosts a variety of history museums and attractions, including the Atlanta History Center, The Carter Center, and the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site. The city is also home to a number of post-secondary educational institutions including Atlanta University Center (Clark, Morehouse and Spelman), Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State University, Emory University and others.
Passion’s offices are located inside the Perimeter of Atlanta (I-285), on the southern edge of Buckhead, the uptown district of Atlanta and home to many of the city’s most beautiful neighborhoods. Buckhead, the neighboring districts and several suburban communities also offer affordable, family friendly neighborhoods that still enjoy close proximity to all the city has to offer.
