The Secret to Reaching Gen Z

#Reimagine Romans 12:2

Author’s Note: The impetus of my story below took place last year… but the global COVID-19 has provoked an even greater urgency in my mind and heart. My prayer is that as you read my story, the Holy Spirit will launch you onto a reimagine-journey that will influence your thinking in a way that will […]

The Prayer Request of Christ

Imagine being at a Christian gathering where Jesus was physically present. When those in attendance are asked to share their prayer needs, the Lord immediately raises His hand. I’m sure that everyone present would find some way to write down Christ’s prayer request. Fortunately, His request (actually His command) has already been recorded. Twice, in […]

Are We There Yet?

I did it as a kid. You probably did too. My kids did it, and if you have kids, I guess yours probably did too. Ask that inevitable question on a long car journey or flight: Are we there yet? How long will it be until we get there? Long car journeys were never fun […]

Footprints

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, Your God reigns.” Isaiah 52:7 (ESV ) Rather often, we hear the word “footprint” today. Typically, a footprint is a marked effect, impression, impact, an […]

Don’t Just Live the Gospel – Preach it!

I’m sure you’ve heard this inaccurate quote of Francis of Assisi; ‘Preach the Gospel at all times. Use words if necessary.’ Living the gospel instead of preaching it is neither helpful nor Biblical. Join Micah Fries as he explores the ways we can encourage every believer to creatively share the Gospel in this season.

When You Fall Short of Expectations

“You’re going to be the next Billy Graham!” How many of you have heard someone tell you that? Maybe it wasn’t exactly that, but you had a very high expectation of some sort that was placed on you. Talk about pressure. Then, someone else responds with, “There will never be another Billy Graham, just be […]

The COVID-19 Invitation

Who Do You Want to Be When It’s Over? We don’t want to ignore the real suffering of this current health crisis. For some, the COVID-19 crisis has immediate implications on their finances, their health, family dynamics and, for sure, their social dynamics. Evangelists are no exception. Evangelists, however, are innovators, finding the silver lining […]

Is This the Beginning of Birth Pains?

In March Evangelical leader and church consultant Ed Stetzer released a clarion call to pastors across North America to move from our legitimate concerns about church meetings and money (i.e. Phase One of the COVID-19 crisis) to Phase Two which is planning to serve our communities when COVID-19 infections and death rates really hit us. […]

Persistent Faith

We are living in unprecedented times. But so were many of those listed in Hebrews 11. I’d like to share with you what I’ve been learning and I’m praying it will encourage you, as it has me. I believe now more than ever we must have faith. We must persist. I don’t know about you, […]

Fundraising Principles in Uncertain Times

Every year the Palau Association surveys our Next Generation Alliance (NGA) evangelists about their critical concerns in ministry. And every year the number one concern is money. In fact, money will probably always be the number one critical concern of all non-profits. And the COVID-19 pandemic has certainly heightened these financial concerns. As evangelists, you […]

Is the Proof in the Pudding?

“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” I Peter 3:15 We’ve all heard the saying – the proof is in the pudding. The original version […]

A MESSAGE FROM KEVIN PALAU, PRESIDENT OF THE LUIS PALAU ASSOCIATION

When COVID-19 first hit, none of us knew exactly how much it would impact our daily lives. Little did we know how significantly it would impact our plans for ministry as well. And yet now, as if overnight, we are all learning a new way of life and ministry.

As an organization, we have not been immune to the effects of this pandemic. We have offices and staff strategically located throughout the world who have been working on citywide evangelistic campaigns – all of which are now on hold until we know that we can accomplish these festivals safely and effectively.

In the meantime, much of our work continues as planned, and even some efforts have grown during these unique times. These include our efforts with City Gospel Movements, Next Generation Alliance, and our extensive digital evangelism strategies through Hope with God…
