World evangelist and author Luis Palau (loo-EES puh-LAOW) and his ministry have shared the Gospel with more than 1 billion people through evangelistic events and media. He has spoken in person to more than 25 million people in 72 countries with close to 1 million registered decisions for Jesus Christ. His radio broadcasts in both English and Spanish are heard by millions more on over 2600 radio stations in 42 countries.
Mr. Palau has authored close to 50 books and countless articles on issues of faith, and has counseled with business and political leaders and heads of state around the world. Luis Palau festivals have produced some of the largest audiences ever recorded in cities from south Florida to South America. His ministry also includes the Next Generation Alliance, created to grow and nurture partner evangelists, and Hope with God, reaching people online through social media.
His latest book, A Life on Fire, was written shortly after he was diagnosed with lung cancer. Luis and his wife, Pat, live in Portland, Oregon, where they have ten grandchildren and four sons, three of whom are actively involved with the ministry.
Luis moved away from the traditional style of worship to a more contemporary appeal. While traveling from city to city, Luis made sure he had all the right elements to help draw in the masses. These things included: contemporary music acts, extreme sport skate parks and even exotic food stands. However, even with these things, Luis never lost sight of his goal: to show people how the Word of Jesus Christ can bring peace and fulfillment.
Luis never charges admission for his festivals. He builds his support from hundreds of churches and businesses within the area where each festival is held.
Through these festivals, Luis hopes to see a national revival of Christianity where millions discover Christ.
