PORTLAND, OR — At the invitation of hundreds of churches and thousands of Christians in Spain, the Luis Palau Association will share the Good News of Jesus Christ in Madrid, June 15-23, 2019, through numerous outreach events and a 2-day family festival in the heart of the city.
Working with, through, and for the local Church, this unified, area-wide campaign will proclaim the life-changing message of Jesus Christ on a nationwide scale and introduce a new model for long-term community change. The campaign will unite believers in Madrid as well as local pastors and leaders, encouraging them in the Word, focusing on continuing in unity, and inspiring them to keep evangelism a top priority.
For years God has used the Palau team in a special way to bless Spain. The 2005 Madrid festival sparked a powerful new season of outreach and evangelism for evangelical churches in the city and surrounding area and helped ignite a significant church planting movement that is bearing much fruit. Evangelical leaders are eager to have Palau partner on another festival to grow the Gospel’s impact even further.
Through Palau’s unique partnership among churches, as well as corporate and civic leaders, the Madrid Festival will include:
- A powerful family-fun evangelistic festival. The 2-day event will put local training into action and proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ on a grand scale. It will include live Christian musical performances, special outreaches for children, and clear proclamations of the Gospel from Luis and Andrew Palau.
- Affinity events reaching key sectors of society. Taking every opportunity to share the Gospel with the entire region, the Palau team will also host special evangelistic gatherings for key sectors of society, including prison outreaches, a gathering for women, and a dinner for business and civic leaders.
- Bold community impact. Thousands of volunteers will commit hundreds of volunteer hours to the local community leading up to the festival through united, long-term efforts focused on the region’s greatest needs.
Initially it wasn’t certain Luis Palau would join his son Andrew and the team for the Madrid festival, due to Luis’ ongoing battle with Stage IV lung cancer. But after much prayer and consideration, Luis has chosen to join the team, making it his first international trip since he was diagnosed in January 2018.
In June, Luis Palau is also releasing his latest book, Palau: A Life on Fire. Having started this book in the weeks after his cancer diagnosis, this is a very personal, intimate look at Luis’ life and ministry. Less about himself and more about the unsung heroes in his life, Luis takes a unique approach in this book and shows a vulnerability seldom seen in leaders. Learn more at www.PalautheBook.org.
