Passion founder Louie Giglio said the goal for the world tour is to go into 20 cities across 15 nations next year. Giglio told the more than 20,000 college students in the Phillips Arena and the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta that help was needed in order for the tour, estimated to cost $4 million, to take place. An offering was taken up to support it.

The idea behind Passion 07 is to motivate students to live for Christ. Giglio challenged students to spend their lives telling the nations about Christ.
"There is a massive worldwide after-party. It’s called heaven," Giglio said. "The invitations are going out in every single language, and those who have the story need to take the story to the nations, to the 6,800 people groups that don’t yet have the Gospel. God is asking many of us to pack up the ‘American Dream’ and is extending the invitation to go to the unreached people groups of the world."
Students at Passion 07 were not only challenged to do something for Christ, but were also given the opportunity to answer that challenge.
ATLANTA (BP)--Passion 07 is underway in Atlanta with more than 21,000 registered college students from across the United States and at least 30 countries. They arrived on New Year’s Day for the four-day conference that ends Jan. 4.
