It's staggering when we begin to realize that all creation is singing the praises of the One who fashioned and formed the universe. Yet, singing stars and earth's ovation cannot drown God's desire to hear your voice. In the midst of a miraculous and immense symphony of praise, God is still mindful of you, going to extraordinary lengths to give you life and breath through His Son.
But, why would God pay such a high price to bring us to life again? Could it be that we are prized above all creation...that we are loved by the God who made the heavens and the earth. Such stunning grace awakens our hearts in extravagant worship as we take our place in His symphony and join the chorus, on both the best of days and through the darkest nights.
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.
