Luis Palau at Christ Church Nashville on Sunday; CityFest in May announced that internationally renowned multicultural evangelist Luis Palau is coming to Christ Church this Sunday. One purpose of Palau's visit is to generate support for the Nashville CityFest, an evangelism festival scheduled for May 19 & 20, according to this calendar.


A man, who crosses the multi-cultural lines, also brings a message of hope and love to millions all over the world.

Luis Palau, native Argentinean, has been called the Latin-worlds Billy Graham. He is an innovative evangelist that focuses mainly on community in each city he visits. Every year there are several festivals that bring great music, fun games, extreme sports and the Gospel all together.

This Sunday, February 4th, Luis Palau will be speaking at Christ Church Nashville, 15354 Old Hickory Blvd., at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. services.

These festivals attract huge crowds in cities all over the world. The festivals are always free event, entertaining for the whole family and open to the public.

We want to attract the un-churched, and we want them to encounter God, and bring them all to Christ and to understand and to connect. We also want to unite and energize the church community wherever we go, said Palau.

This non-traditional evangelism is what makes Palau's festivals so attractive, especially to young people. The events include full multi-media productions featuring some of the biggest names in Christian music. In each city, a large skate park is also set up that showcases some of the top athletes in extreme sports such as skateboarding, BMX and motocross. These events are hosted by actor Stephen Baldwin. The festival does not leave out the children. There is also a big play area and family fun zone that includes some favorite VeggieTales.

Today's young people understand music and technology, but few have an understanding of what a life walked in faith can produce. They don't know the person of Jesus Christ - that He is alive, that He is divine, and that He wants everyone to know Him personally, Palau said.
