GOOD NEWS Thousands of Young Christians Gather for Passion Conference 2015
20,000 young Christians gathered in Atlanta over the weekend for Passion Conference 2015.
The goal of the event is to bring young people together to worship Christ and to help the poor and needy.
One young woman who attended said, "It's a great way to start off the year, to get on fire for Christ again ... It's an unexplainable joy, it comes from the inside. It's a call to action to reach out to other people. And it lasts throughout the year if you want it to."
Todd Starnes appeared on "Fox and Friends Weekend" this morning from Passion Conference 2015 to report on the event that has largely been ignored by many media outlets.
"You know how the mainstream media is," Starnes said. "They always like to cover the bad things young people are doing."
Starnes said that this event, with 20,000 young people of all races and backgrounds worshipping together, was amazing to watch.
He added that a second Passion Conference will be held in Atlanta next weekend and a third later this month in Houston.
"They're going to be doing things to help the poor and the needy and also bring attention to significant issues, key issues like human trafficking," Starnes said, noting that many attendees brought items to donate to local homeless shelters.
"This is really about coming together and really showing the world that you can't do something by yourself, but you can do it collectively, so you can really make an impact and a difference," Starnes said.
"How encouraging is it to know that there are still young people in America who still believe in God and have no qualms about expressing that love for Him in a public setting like here in Atlanta."
