Luis Palau Memorial Service, Livestream Set for Saturday, March 20

(Charisma Media Archives)

Nine days after the passing of beloved evangelist Luis Palau, his family and close friends are set to gather for an intimate memorial service in his honor. The service, which was set as a private event and kept small due to COVID-19 regulations, will be livestreamed worldwide on Facebook at as well as on Luis Palau's memorial website at No registration is necessary. All are welcome and encouraged to tune in.

"We wish we could all be together in person," Kevin Palau shared on social media earlier this week, "but we know even over a video stream this time will be incredibly meaningful. Dad's wish for his memorial was that it would be a time to praise and glorify the King of Heaven. And that's exactly what we'll do."

The service will include music from Matt Redman, words from close family and friends, and a performance by the gospel choir from Salem Baptist Church of Chicago. It will start at 2 p.m. PDT on March 20. You can watch it on Facebook at or on Luis Palau's memorial website at

"This service will be a great time to remember and celebrate the life of our Dad, Luis Palau," said Andrew Palau, one of Luis' four sons and co-evangelist for the past 15 years. "But just as Dad would have wanted, it will also be a wonderful time to honor the Lord and proclaiming His Good News. We really hope many will tune in, share it with their friends, and be deeply encouraged by the message we share—the same message Dad shared for his entire life."

Those who want to share a testimony or memory of Luis or who want to write a note to the family may do so at Thousands from around the world have shared encouraging, personal messages and videos, many of which are currently being highlighted on the site.

The Luis Palau Association has also put together a special commemorative book for the service on Saturday. Individuals interested in their own free copy of this commemorative book, My Life in Seven Words, or in giving a memorial gift to continue the work of the Luis Palau Association, can do so at
