The son of evangelist Luis Palau led an evangelistic festival in Florida, turning more than 2,000 people to Christ prior to the minister’s passing.
A few days before the passing of the late evangelist, Andrew Palau spearheaded the Space Coast CityFest throughout Brevard County on March 6-7. The event took off after more than two years of preparation.
Detailed in the Luis Palau Association website, the event was preceded by a “festival week” that held multiple outreaches and gatherings in the county, including prison outreaches, a couple of gatherings for women, first responder breakfast and luncheon for civic and business leaders.
The festival featured a number of artists such as Casting Crowns, Zach Williams, Mac Powell, Mandisa, Social Club Misfits and Andy Mineo. It also presented shows like stunt demos from professional skaters, BMX and FMX athletes, as well as presentations of the Gospel.
The program has provided opportunities for the churches in the region to unite in service, including foster care and adoption, partnering with schools, addressing homelessness and hunger, revitalizing families and neighborhood and awareness campaign on opioid crisis and mental health.
The organization plans to hold the same event on other cities and countries such as Hermiston in Oregon, Blantyre in Malawi, Buenos Aires and Mendoza in Argentina, Egypt, Naples in Italy, Pakistan, Manchester in New Hampshire, Manchester in United Kingdom and Ghana.
14 years ago, the late evangelist also held a campaign in the state, establishing relationships in the community.
