“You don’t need to wait to participate fully in the plans and purposes of God. It’s now that God can use you,” Louie Giglio says in his closing message in this collection of six, powerful inspirational messages aimed at young people who want to live significant lives for God.

The call to Christ-glorifying Gospel action now, echoes through all of the messages that were presented to 42 000 College students at the 2012 Passion Conference in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta from January 2 to 5. The conference featured live music from Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Charlie Hall and other prominent Christian musicians, and messages by Passion regulars Giglio, Beth Moore, Francis Chan and John Piper, and anti-human trafficking crusader Christine Caine. The DVD collection contains the six main messages at the conference at which the young audience responded to the call to change the world by donating more than $3 million to the cause of fighting slavery and human trafficking. There are 27 million slaves on the earth now — more than at any other time in history – says anti-trafficking crusader Caine in her slot.

The action-inspiring messages based on well-known Bible texts are relevant to young people everywhere. Since the Passion movement was founded by Giglio 15 years ago it has touched millions of young people, while remaining true to its heart vision of seeing a generation stake their lives on what matters most — the fame of Jesus (Isaiah 26:8) and amplifying His name in everything they do. Young people who were inspired by Giglio’s preaching at the one-day Passion events in South Africa in September/October may well be interested in listening to the more comprehensive messages that came through at the 4-day Atlanta event.
