More than 300 churches across East Texas have united through CityFest East Texas with Andrew Palau to spread hope in a powerful way. Fueled by prayer, empowered by service, and impassioned by the concerted proclamation of the Gospel, these churches represent all communities denominations, and ethnicities.

CityFest has been a catalytic force in celebrating and accelerating the work of the Church over the long term, helping further influence culture, change lives, and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. And we’re hoping this effort inspires other cities to do the same.

You’re invited to join leaders from throughout the nation for the CityFest weekend to learn more about this great movement and dream about what a similar city gospel movement might look like in your city. You’ll gather with like-minded leaders and experience the movement firsthand.

This is your opportunity to learn, dialogue, and dream about what it looks like to come together in a bold way as the Body of Christ in service and proclamation of Jesus Christ. Don’t miss it.
