Passion has been around since 1997 with a desire to see spiritual awakening come to college campuses of the nation and the world. More than a conference organization, the Passion movement is headquartered in the Atlanta area. The small Passion team is led by Louie Giglio and operates under the direction of a Board of Directors who are committed to spreading the fame of Jesus Christ to the 16+ million college students of the nation and countless others around the world.
From the beginning, Passion has been rooted in the confession of Isiah 26:8: “Yes Lord, walking in the way of Your truth we wait eagerly for You, for Your name and renown are the desire of our souls.”
As a result, Passion seeks to gather university students across the nation and world, asking Him to ignite in our souls a passionate pursuit of Jesus Christ and a desire to spread His unending fame to everyone on earth...starting with the campuses on which they live.
In 2000, sixstepsrecords, a worship label under the same ministry as Passion was planted. Also led by Louie and Shelley Giglio, sixsteps is a joint venture partnership with EMI. The small family of artists include Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Christy Nockels, Brett Younker, Kristian Stanfill, Passion and Matt Redman (USA). Along with actively participating in and leading at Passion gatherings, the artists on sixstepsrecords are planted/leading in churches in their cities, tour consistently, play at events world-wide and are writing many of the most recognizable songs for the Church around the globe.
