Thousands of college students are at the Georgia Dome this week part of a religious conference that aims to capture their spirits at an age organizers say is critical.
Nobody is more passionate than a college student and organizers of Passion 2013 here at the Georgia Dome hope this week to capitalize on that. Now, imagine looking around the Georgia Dome and seeing thousands of people who feel exactly the same way.
“When you come and see 60,000 who believe the same way, it just blows your mind,” said organizer Bryson Vogeltranz at the outset of the four-day conference.
Vogeltranz is one of the organizers here and he admits it is an extreme exercise in logistics to get 60,000 college students to move in the same direction at the same time. But in most cases, the students are willing.
“It’s just so incredible to see so many students from so many different schools and countries come together for one cause, said Baylor University sophomore Lauren Fender from Kansas City, MO.
“It’s just one of the most amazing things I think I’ll ever see in my life,” agreed 17-year old Brookstone HS senior Sebastian Gibson of Snellville.
The conference runs through January 4th at the World Congress Center.
