First Ever — TBN to Televise Passion Conference From Atlanta's Georgia Dome

ATLANTA, GA. (Feb. 20, 2017) — This week, for the first time ever, Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) will bring to television all the highlights from the Passion Conference, one of the nation's largest annual Christian collegiate gatherings, which brings together tens of thousands of college students and young people from across America to help them find their passion and purpose in loving Jesus.

Popular Atlanta pastor Louie Giglio kicked off the first Passion Conference in 1997 with a few thousand college students in Austin,Texas, and since then millions of young people have been filling stadiums and arenas across America and around the globe for exciting worship, life-changing teaching, and unforgettable fellowship.

This year Christian television leader TBN was on hand to catch all the excitement of the Passion 2017 Conference as over 50,000 enthusiastic young people packed Atlanta's Georgia Dome for cutting-edge worship from award-winning artists like Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, and the Passion worship band, and to be impacted by such noted Christian speakers as John Piper, Beth Moore, Christine Caine, Levi Lusko, and Louie Giglio.

Tune in to TBN nightly, February 20, 21, 23, and 24, at 8 p.m. EST / 8 p.m. PST for all the highlights from this gathering that is helping to change the hearts and futures of an entire generation.

Louie Giglio explained that from its founding the Passion Conference has been all about “calling students from campuses across the nation and around the world to live for what matters most. For us, what matters most is the name and renown of Jesus. We believe in this generation and are watching God use them to change the climate of faith around the globe.”

TBN Chairman Matt Crouch noted that a few years ago many research studies found young people were distancing themselves from faith in God. “The Passion Conference is proving that research wrong in a big way,” he said. “Passion 2017 is tens of thousands of millennials raising their hands, worshiping God, eager to hear and embrace this wonderful message of hope and grace through Jesus. We're thrilled to bring this important event to our TBN viewers.”
