Passion City Church Pastor and founder of the Passion movement Louie Giglio sat down with the hosts of the Essential Church podcast last week to talk about touching the lives of University aged students.
The Passion Conferences were founded by Giglio in 1997 and work to bring college-aged students together to worship God and fellowship together.
On the podcast, Giglio talked about his 22 years of ministry saying, “Passion actually was born out of a desire to see university-age young people come alive to a relationship with Jesus.”
