Day 1 of CityFest East Texas was powerful! More than 12,500 people joined us in The Square in Downtown Tyler, Texas for a wonderful night of great music and Good News. The program included a Family Fun Zone, Action Sports (with help from our good friends The Stunt Dudes), and a tons of great musicians on the main stage (including Blanca, Ryan Stevenson, and Newsboyz United).
Andrew Palau shared a powerful Gospel message and led hundreds of individuals in personal commitments to follow Jesus Christ. We were also thrilled to have more than 40k people watch the festival LIVE via a livestream on Facebook and Palau.org.
Praise the Lord with us and enjoy this video and some photos from the day.

CityFest East Texas is off to a great start! Andrew and the prison team arrived on Friday night and went into a local treatment center on Saturday morning. We had about 500 inmates join us, both men and women. The inmates were very excited to have us and 125 indicated a decision for Jesus Christ!
Then, on Saturday night, a special outreach for Spanish-speakers - Fiesta Latina - saw more than 2,500 people in attendance. Many thousand more tuned in via Facebook Live. The event featured music from Marisol Park and Tercer Cielo and Andrew gave a clear Gospel presentation. More than 195 people responded to the message by filling out a decision card or texting in their decision.
More than 400 churches are on board for the festival and we’re excited that we have two sold out evangelistic luncheons this week.
