"And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."
In His last moments on earth, Jesus left His followers with a simple, yet all-consuming mission: Make sure every person on the planet hears about Me!
Now, thousands of years later, the mission remains the same and the challenge is very much alive. Though the Kingdom of God is expanding rpaidly across the globe, billions have yet to hear the truth of a gracious God and the love he has shown through His Son, Jesus Christ.
If Jesus' words are true - and the party of heaven doesn't start until all people have been given an invitation - then the time is now for every Believer to join the cause and spread His fame. PASSPORT is not about all of us becoming full time missionaries, rather each of us adopting a "missions lifestyle".
After all, the degree to which we embrace the mission and carry His message will determine how much we will enjoy the eternal celebration of heaven.
Louie Giglio was born 30 June 1958, and grew up in a Christian home in Atlanta, Georgia. He was an average college freshman at Georgia State University in 1977, that is, until one night, at 2 a.m., when he decided to devote his life to following Christ, not the college party life. He was inspired to be one of the first people to design a modern style of worship that is geared specifically toward young adults, with casual attire, expressive worship, and low-key, visually driven sermons.
Louie went on to earn a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife Shelley started Choice Ministries, a Bible study at Baylor University that would become hugely popular among the student body. In 1995, when he moved back home to Atlanta, Georgia, due to his father's failing health, Louie founded a national gathering of Christian college students called the Passion Movement. From the first Passion Conference in Austin, Texas, in 1997, nearly a million university students have attended Passion-linked prayer, worship, and teaching events across the US, reaching a peak in the 17-city Passion Tour of 2008.
As part of the Passion Movement, Louie began a recording company, Sixsteps Records, which has signed and produced various Christian worship artists, such as David Crowder Band, Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, and Charlie Hall. He also started a Bible study movement, 7:22, aimed at single adults in the Atlanta area, which would attract thousands.
Louie has authored numerous popular books, including The Air I Breathe, I Am Not but I Know I Am, Indescribable, Passion, Wired: For a Life of Worship, Lost in Wonder, and The Comeback.
In 2008, Louie announced the planting of Passion City Church (PCC) in Atlanta, and was joined in the new venture by popular Christian recording artists Chris Tomlin and Matt Redman. Prior to this, Louie had attended North Point Community Church for 13 years, Louie and his wife Shelley make their home just outside of Atlanta.
