Led by international evangelist Andrew Palau, this event will also include award-winning musical artist Phil Wickham and New York Times best-selling author and speaker Francis Chan. Chan was just added to the program this week after Luis Palau asked him to stand in his place.

Palau was recently diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer and in undergoing chemotherapy treatment in Portland, Oregon.

"It's going to be a powerful night of unity for the local believers," said Luis Palau. "Francis, Phil, and Andrew will encourage, inspire, and bless the thousands of Christians gathering together in excitement and preparation for CityFest West Michigan this summer. This is a special night for Christians to prepare their hearts for this powerful season of outreach."

The RE:NEW Gathering will be on March 1 at Resurrection Life Church at 5100 Ivanrest Ave. SW. The free event is at 7 p.m. Tickets can be reserved at www.cityfestwestmichigan.org/renew.

With already nearly 300 churches committed to support and serve the region through CityFest West Michigan, the RE:NEW Gathering is sure to be an event of unprecedented influence and unity for local Christians.
