Tonight Passion 2017 began from the Georgia Dome located in Atlanta.  It you are unfamiliar with Passion, it is the 20th anniversary of a gathering of over 55,000 18-25 year olds with the sole purpose of making the name of Jesus famous.  Over 1,600 campuses and 90 countries were represented.  On a special note, this will be the final event at The Dome before it is tore down.

The three-day event began with words from Passion’s founder Louie Giglio and Christine Caine. Her challenging session on faith and endurance from Hebrews 10 and 11 inspired all in attendance.  Included are images of her differentiating between Godly Ambition and Selfish Ambition.
