ATLANTA - Philips Arena was packed with 20,000 college-age students over the weekend as Passion 2014 came to Atlanta.
The yearly event focused on faith and spiritual growth drew students from all 50 states.
Parrish Brown, a senior at Georgia Tech, attended her fourth Passion Conference.
"I feel like coming as a freshman, you're looking for an identity, and purpose, and comfort," said Brown. "I found that you can find that here in Jesus. So, I just kept coming back."
Students donated more than 20,000 towels and socks that will be donated to area homeless shelters.
A second Passion Conference will be held in Houston on February 14 and 15.
