When 40,000 college students pile together in one spot . . .

Passion ConferenceWhat do you get when tens of thousands of loud college students gather in one spot?

Not what you might think.

These Christian students have gathered from Jan. 2 – Jan. 4 for the annual Passion Conference in Atlanta at Philips Arena, the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth and the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas to raise money to build a hospital for at-risk mothers and their children in Syria, the Christian Post reported.

Many of the youngsters also brought socks and towels for homeless shelters in the areas of their host building.

In all the event, which is headed by Pastor Louie Giglio, is expected to draw more than 40,000 students.

The event has been raising funds for worthy causes for years and among its top issues is modern-day slavery.

“You know for the past couple of years they really have been raising the awareness, this passion movement, they’ve been raising the issue of human trafficking. and over the past several years these college students have raised nearly $8 million to fight human trafficking. and this year, their emphasis is on building a hospital for at-risk women and children in Syria,” Fox News’ Todd Starnes told the hosts of “Fox & Friends” on Sunday.

This year people who wanted to participate in the festivities but were unable to make the trip were encouraged to watch the events, that included live music at all three locations, like on the Passion website.

“While we host large gatherings, Passion is more than a conference. More than an event. More than a feeling. Passion is you and me saying goodbye to lesser things and saying yes to Jesus, the One whose name is above every name,” the group wrote on its website.
