HISTORY

Passion City Church began with a stirring in the hearts of Louie and Shelley Giglio for the local church. Born out of the Passion Movement (a decades-old movement among the collegiate generation), they sought to plant a local community of faith impacted and informed by the DNA of Passion.

With a small team of people, that vision took flight in 2008, as small gatherings began in homes throughout Atlanta. The desire was to foster a family of believers connected by a common faith, on mission in the city and the world to amplify the name of Jesus.

And that’s exactly what happened. Our first gathering was held on February 15, 2009, in Atlanta at The Tabernacle. From there, God faithfully provided, as our little tribe met at various locations all over the city of Atlanta until we landed in our first permanent gathering site at 515 Garson Drive. Since then we’ve added a location in the Cumberland area of Atlanta and a location in Washington D.C. whose weekly gatherings started in April of 2018.

Passion City Church remains a place where the gospel is central and Jesus is always the lead story. We are a Jesus church and want to gather in worship and scatter to shine His light and love throughout the city and beyond.

We are: for God. for people. for the city. for the world.

WE WANT TO BE WINSOME PEOPLE

When Passion City Church was planted, we were born on mission with a pioneering spirit to reach the city with the story and grace of Jesus. With that heartbeat leading us forward, we don’t ever want to become settlers or lose vision for our city.

With that in mind, and encouraged by Paul’s declaration in Corinthians, we want to reach the city, our city, by being the kinds of people who live irresistible lives. Our desire is to be people who understand that there is an irreducible minimum in the heart of every single person and what people need the most is Jesus. Thus, we have injected into the fabric of our House the “winsome spirit,” the desire to be and do whatever is necessary to reflect the life and love of Jesus to the world.
