"For more than 25 years, Andrew has played a key role in the ministry of the Luis Palau Association (LPA) that was founded by his father in 1960.  He has been instrumental in building the LPA model for citywide outreach as an evangelist, director and key team leader.

"An evangelist in his own right, Andrew has guided campaigns, led church relations efforts, trained thousands of believers in friendship evangelism, and proclaimed the Good News of Jesus Christ in person to hundreds of thousands of individuals around the world through evangelistic campaigns," Gilcrest added.

Andrew and Luis recently returned from FestiMadrid in Spain where thousands of people made the commitment to follow Jesus.  The region-wide effort brought together more than 200 churches and trained 3,700 local followers of Christ – all focused on a week-long campaign to saturate the city and surrounding region with the Gospel.  Included in the effort were outreaches for business and civic leaders, and women.

Dinners, ranging in cost from $5-$12, can be purchased from local food carts attending the event.  Food carts participating include Up 'N Smoke BBQ Hakuna Murata, Home Plate Sliders, Tall Boy Fish & Chips and Hand-scooped Ice Cream.
