Here's Why 20,000 Christian College Students and Young Adults Are Set to Flock to Atlanta This Weekend

A massive gathering.

Scores of college students and young adults are set to descend upon Atlanta, Georgia, this weekend for the Passion 2015 Conference — a massive gathering aimed at inspiring Christian youths to live their lives according to biblical principles.

A crowd of 20,000 adherents between the ages of 18 and 25 are expected to show up to worship Jesus and explore the Bible during the three-day conference, which begins Friday, according to CBN News.

The goal of the annual event is to bring young people closer to God, while also encouraging the faithful to help the poor and those in need.

Louie Giglio, founder of the conference and pastor of Passion City Church in Georgia, will host the event. Speakers and well-known Christian music acts will join him at Philips Arena and the Georgia World Congress Center to inspire and entertain worshippers.

Chris Tomlin and David Crowder are just two of the well-known music acts who will perform, with Pastors John Piper, Francis Chan and Carl Lentz, among others, participating as special guests.

Participants are also being encouraged to bring items with them that can be donated to help the homeless in Atlanta, according to CBN News.

WXIA-TV reported last year that 20,000 socks and towels were donated during the first weekend of last year's event, showing just how engaged participants are in helping those in need.

This weekend's sold-out event is the first of three Passion conferences taking place this month, with a second event unfolding from January 16-18 again in Atlanta and a third happening in Houston, Texas, from January 23-February 1, the Atlanta Business Journal reported.
