Luis Palau Association

Organization Description: 

We aim to minister in capital cities and other influential population centers around the world, with the goal of letting entire regions hear the voice of God (Romans 15:18-24).

We hold citywide and nationwide mass evangelistic festivals. These are aimed at the whole of the population within a designated area (Acts 19:10). Find out about volunteer opportunities at a festival near you.

We work closely with local churches to follow up each person who registers a commitment to Jesus Christ during our festivals. Trained counselors provide immediate counsel to inquirers and serve as bridgebuilders to channel inquirers into local churches (Matthew 28:18-20).

We work with the whole Body of Christ--with the Church, through the Church, and for the Church (Colossians 1:24-29).

We hold united festivals because we believe the Body of Christ should have an impact as "one Body" (1 Corinthians 12:12-26). Find out about volunteer opportunities at a festival near you.

Our objective in mass evangelism is to help existing churches grow numerically and spiritually and in turn establish new local congregations (Acts 2:37-47).

We believe evangelism should be carried out everywhere, especially in areas where people are ready to respond to the Good News (John 4:35-38).

Using numerous teaching materials, videos, and seminars, we train thousands of local Christians to participate in friendship evangelism, counseling, and discipleship of new believers (Ephesians 4:11-16).

We use mass communications to extend the impact of the Good News to the maximum degree possible, including continent-wide evangelistic outreaches via radio, television, literature, and the Internet (Acts 17:6). Find out more.

We emphasize Christian family living. Most people around the world dream of having a happy home. We preach that Jesus Christ revolutionizes entire families when He is made the center of the home (Acts 16:29-34).

We engage in social action, ministering to families and entire communities, recognizing that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is itself the greatest agent for positive social change (Acts 4:33-35).

We believe our greatest task is to call men and women, youth and children to trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and publicly confess Him as Lord (Romans 10:9-10).

We aim for ministry to top national leaders because of their influence on the population at large (Acts 9:15 and 26:19-20).

We teach the significance and centrality of the indwelling resurrected life of Christ: "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me" (Galatians 2:20).

We teach and practice expository preaching, continually affirming the power and authority of Scripture (2 Timothy 3:14-17).

We conduct pastors conferences and produce Bible commentaries, magazines, and video training series to minister to those who shepherd the Church in the Spanish-speaking world (1 Peter 5:1-11).

We work as a team, following the example of the Lord Jesus and the apostle Paul, who was accompanied by an international team of men as he ministered from city to city (Acts 20:4).

We keep our staff to a minimum and multiply our efforts in partnership with other Christian ministries (1 Corinthians 3:5-11).

We work with other evangelists and have launched Next Generation Alliance -- a partnership to encourage and equip a new generation of evangelists (2 Timothy 1:6-7).

In dependence upon God, we look for the provision of our needs through the prayerful financial support of local churches and Christian friends (Philippians 4:10-17).

As charter members of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, we maintain high standards of financial accountability for the funds entrusted to us for world evangelism (2 Corinthians 8:20-21).
