Interview with Louie Giglio


Family Christian:     What is the main driving force behind what you do? (i.e. Passion Conferences, pastoring, mentoring young people, etc.)


Louie Giglio:   As long as I can remember, the compelling force behind my calling is a desire to know Jesus more and to make Him known. I believe I was created for a relationship with Jesus, so growing in my relationship with Him and worshiping Him with all my heart and life is preeminent. As an overflow of my life – the wake I leave behind with my little dash on earth – I want others to fall in love with Jesus and know of His great hope and purpose for their lives.


Family Christian:    When and how did the Passion Conferences come to be? What was the hope/vision behind it? How did it get to be the huge success it is now?


Louie Giglio:   Passion was born out of a desire to see the close to 20-million university students in America awaken to their God-created purpose and destiny. Shelley and I had been working for a decade with students on one college campus in Texas and had relocated to Atlanta in 1995 to help with the care of my recently disabled father. But suddenly my father passed away and we were neither serving him nor the students we left behind at Baylor University. In that window of confusion and grief God called us to the great opportunity of hosting gatherings for students from all the campuses of the nation. The Passion Movement was born with a gathering of 2000 students in Austin in January 1997. Our growth and influence is hard to quantify or explain. We believe the focus on Jesus, and the clarion call to this generation to live for His fame, is an enduring and worthy effort which God has blessed and favored.


Family Christian:    What is your vision for Passion 2015? Will it be any different from previous years? Is there a theme? Who will be joining you on stage this year?


Louie Giglio:   We are massively excited about Passion 2015, hosting three three-day events – two in Atlanta and one in Houston. Though the faces will be the same, and some of our core speakers will return, the focus will remain as always The Glory Of God.


Family Christian:   What is your favorite (or one of your favorite) passages of Scripture and why? How has it helped you in your life?


Louie Giglio:    While we are speaking of Passion, I think I’ll say 1 Thessalonians 5:24 – “Faithful is he who calls who, he also will bring it to pass.” This has been an anchor for Shelley and me as we have followed Jesus personally, and with big mission steps like Passion, and Passion City Church. God has plans and purposes for each of our lives. But the beauty is that He doesn’t call us and leave us on our own. Jesus actually lives in us to pull off the amazing things that He has invited us into.


Family Christian:     How should a Christian respond to the tragic current events that are happening around the world today?


Louie Giglio:   The world has been tragic since the day Adam and Eve sinned in the garden. From that moment murder, mayhem and war entered the scene and we are still suffering the consequences of a man-driven, self-serving, short-sighted environment. Yet, like on that day in the garden, God is at work, extending grace, working His restoration plan and bringing all things to the feet of Jesus. To navigate these uncertain and painful days we must be on mission every day, keep our eyes on the hope of Jesus’ coming and work to serve all men while we can.




Family Christian:    What do you think the current generation needs to hear about God and faith?


Louie Giglio:    I know we all need to hear the gospel, but I think more than anything the current generation needs to SEE God as His people live out the sermon, extend truth and grace in tangible ways and demonstrate to the world a real and authentic faith that reverberates through all the facets of our lives. It’s time to preach with our actions and be bold with our words, letting people know God is close, He is better and He is able to repair and restore.


Family Christian:   What can we look for from you in the future? (books, DVDs, speaking tours, etc).


Louie Giglio:    Well, I’ll be at Passion City Church Sunday speaking about the significance of life and death! 🙂 So that’s next for me. As far as resources, we are working on a major book project now we hope to make available in 2015.
