    One name. That is what Louie Giglio, the 2015 Send North America Conference evening session keynote speaker, told attendees they need to focus on. “We are celebrating the gospel—and a name,” said Giglio, pastor of Atlanta’s Passion City Church. “The gospel is not that sin made us bad. It is worse than that. Sin made us dead. But Jesus stepped into our dilemma. He did not leave His throne to make us good people. He came to make us not dead.”
