Passion 2018



To live in such a way that their journey on earth counts for what is most important in the end. For us at Passion, that’s the fame of the One who rescues and restores, and the privilege we have to amplify His name in everything we do.

While we host large gatherings, Passion is more than a conference. More than an event. More than a feeling. Passion is you and me saying goodbye to lesser things and saying yes to Jesus, the One whose name is above every name.  

We would love for you to join us January 1st — 3rd as we travel to Atlanta Georgia to worship and study scripture with 70,000 other 18-25 year olds and their leaders. The conference costs $200 for people that travel with GBC for this event. That price includes your event ticket, travel, and lodging. There will be a mandatory pre-trip meeting that will take place two weeks prior to the trip where we will share more information about times and rooming lists. Can't wait to see you there.
