PRAISE: 65,000 College Students Start 2020 Worshipping Jesus at Massive Passion Conference By CBN News
GNN Note – We saw some of this on TBN and what little we caught looked absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, we a slightly over the age limit – well, maybe way over the age limit – to be able to attend, but we would love to attend because it looks like an amazing situation. It also provides more evidence the gospel church is growing while the secular based church is not.

Two big Christian events are kicking off the New Year in the right way with an around-the-world prayer relay and the massive Passion worship service taking place at the home of the Atlanta Falcons football team.
Passion 2020 Conference
A huge group of Christian millennials and members of Gen Z showed up in Atlanta, GA, to tell the world that Jesus is alive and the church is still the answer.
More than 65,000 people are attending, filling Mercedes-Benz Stadium and ringing in the New Year with Passion 2020 – a gathering of 19- to 25-year-olds along with their church and campus leaders. The multi-day event is filled with worship and teaching, and it kicked off on New Year’s Eve.
