More than two decades ago, Louie and Shelley Giglio started a Bible study in Texas as a way to reach college students interested in gaining a deeper understanding of Christianity and God.

That movement has exploded into the Passion conference, which brings together thousands of the young and faithful.

Passion 2018 will be held at two sites in metro Atlanta –  at Philips Arena and the Infinite Energy Center – and The Anthem in Washington, D.C. through Wednesday.

Passion 2018 is a gathering of 18- to 25-year-olds and their church and campus leaders.

An estimated 32,000 people will attend the conferences.

This is the second time in the Passion conference history that events have been held at three different locations and the first time ever in Washington. D.C.

Speakers include John Piper, Louie Giglio and Priscilla Shirer.

There will also be performances by Crowder, KB and Andy Mineo.

Passion 2018 is a Christian-based gathering of young adults typically ranging in age from 18 to 25. This is the 21st year for the conference.
