Passion Conferences is a Christian organization (also referred to as the 268 Generation, originally named Choice Ministries), founded by Louie Giglio and Jeff Lewis in 1997, known for their annual spiritual awakening gatherings of young adults, more specifically college students. The organization is also responsible for sixstepsrecords, the Passion Worship CDs, and the OneDay gatherings. The first conference was Passion '97 in Austin, Texas, and the headquarters are now in Alpharetta, Georgia. The organization lists its purpose as "...uniting students in worship and prayer for spiritual awakening in this generation," using Isaiah 26:8 as their theme verse: "Yes Lord, walking in the way of Your truth we wait eagerly for You, for Your name and renown are the desire of our souls.   In 1985, Louie and Shelley Giglio founded Choice Ministries at Baylor University in Waco, TX.Choice Ministries began as a campus-based student ministry and after 10 years of ministry at Baylor, Louie and Shelley moved to Atlanta, GA. It was here that the Passion Conferences was birthed, while still remaining under the banner of Choice Ministries, Inc.   Driven forward by a desire to gather college students to see a spiritual awakening happen all across the United States and the world, Passion Conferences became a reality in 1997. The first conference took place in Austin, TX where thousands of college aged students came together during January 1–4, 1997.   When Louie and Shelley began Passion Conference in 1997, they did so out of a desire to see the millions of college students (now over 20 million) joined together under one banner of exalting the "name and the fame of Jesus." This vision began to take shape and gain momentum under the leadership of Louie and the board of Choice Ministries, Inc. After the first gathering in 97' in Austin, there were six national Passion gatherings (1997, 1998, 1999, 2005, 2006, 2007). These conferences directly united thousands of college students during these years . Also, during this 10-year period, thousands of additional college students connected with Passion through one of several other gatherings, including the OneDay Gatherings in 2000 and 2003 and the Passion Experience Tour, or through the Worship recordings and DVD's produced through Passion that have gone on to be released worldwide.   What then spawned was a movement that has circled the globe. Passion Conferences have gone on multiple world tours, reaching out to 24 different cities in 20 different countries. Passion has launched other tours throughout the years as the movement continues to grow. Some of these tours include: Passion NYC Subway Series, Regionals '07–'08, Passion 2010 University Tour, Passion 2012 University Tour, A Night of Worship with Passion Tour, Passion: Let the Future Begin Tour, and Passion: Take It All Tour.   In 2016, Passion Conference was simultaneously held in three arenas in two cities: Toyota Center in Houston, Texas; Infinite Energy Arena in Atlanta, Georgia; and Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Through live streaming capabilities, students were able to see the various speakers and musicians from each of the three venues throughout the 3-day event.   In 2017, Passion held their annual collegiate event in Atlanta, Georgia's Georgia Dome, former home of the Atlanta Falcons before renovations. That year, Passion set out to ensure all that children awaiting sponsorship would be sponsored by their partner Compassion International. By the end of the conference, all children on the sponsorship waiting list from El Salvador, Rwanda, Indonesia, and Tanzania were all off the waiting list and then another 900 were sponsored from Bolivia which went above and beyond what was expected from event holders. Among the artists and speakers, Chris Tomlin, Crowder, and Passion Music all were present with surprise appearance by Carrie Underwood and the debut of sixsteprecords latest artist Jimi Cravity.
