A MODEL THAT IMPACTS CITIES

For the past several years, the Palau Association has been developing a model for sustainable citywide Gospel impact. It has now become known as CityFest & CityServe. 

Starting in Portland, Oregon, in 2008, the Palau Association has helped launch successful, ongoing City Gospel Movements in cities throughout the United States and around the world, accelerating the existing work of the Church community involved.
