After months of waiting on the Lord, we are thrilled and eager to announce that Luis Palau will be joining us at Mission ConneXion Northwest this January!
Many around the world have been crying out to the Lord for healing and strength for Luis following the announcement earlier this year of the serious health issue he was facing. The Lord has been steadily answering those prayers in unusual ways – so don’t stop now!
In light of this burden, the word of his accepting our invitation was especially significant to me, personally, because Luis and I first met exactly 40 years ago this month, and he has been one of my, and Mission ConneXion’s greatest advocates from the time he helped us launch 17 years ago… and I am humbled to call him my friend.
Furthermore, it would be hard to find someone who better demonstrates our theme this year answering the question: “Worth It?” as he has lived out the worth of the Gospel, by courageously proclaiming it for over 60 years. Consider how the Lord has used Luis globally, and right here in our own backyard, over the last half-century:
Luis Palau and his ministry have shared the Gospel with hundreds of millions of people through evangelistic events and media around the world. He has spoken in person to more than 30 million people in 75 countries, with more than 1 million registered decisions for Jesus Christ.
Luis Palau festivals have produced massive audiences in cities from south Florida to South America. His radio broadcasts in both English and Spanish are heard by millions on 5,000 radio outlets in 48 countries. Among other top-tier programs, Luis currently hosts Luis Palau Responde, an international Q&A program in Spanish, and Reaching Your World, a devotional-style program emphasizing biblical wisdom. He has authored close to 50 books, contributed articles on issues of faith to countless publications, and counseled business leaders, political leaders, and heads of state around the world.
