More than 50,000 18-25 year olds from 90 countries and all 50 states packed the Atlanta Georgia Dome for Passion 2017, an annual conference bringing young adults from around the globe together to proclaim the name of God, with daily sessions featuring renowned speakers and artists. Returning to The Georgia Dome for the first time in four years, the three-day conference kicked off Monday, Jan. 2 and concluded Wednesday, Jan. 4, marking one of the final events held at the arena before its planned demolition this year.
Spearheaded by Passion Founders Louie and Shelley Giglio, attendees heard from Christine Caine, Beth Moore, John Piper, Levi Lusko, Francis Chan and Katherine and Jay Wolf while joining in worship led by Passion Band (helmed by Kristian Stanfill, Brett Younker and Melodie Malone), Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels and Hillsong UNITED. To the surprise of all guests, multi-platinum selling Carrie Underwood joined GRAMMY nominated Crowder on stage Monday night and performed her No. 1 hit single "Something In The Water" to an enthusiastic crowd.
Those attending Passion 2017 were also introduced to two new songs from the Atalanta based Church. You can listen to "This We Know" featuring Kristian Stanfill and "Worthy Of Your Name" featuring Sean Curran below. Download these new tracks on iTunes today.
