International evangelist Luis Palau told Fox News Latino that it had been his dream from a young age to share the Gospel in New York City, and last weekend, that dream came true.

Palau’s NY CityFest drew an estimated 60,000 people to iconic centerpieces of the Big Apple, including Central Park, Times Square and Madison Square Garden. There they not only heard Christian musicians tobyMac, Mandisa, Matt Redman, Marcos Whitt, Third Day, Hezekiah Walker, Israel Houghton and Chris Tomlin--but the Gospel message as well.

According to The Christian Post, more than 1,700 churches in the greater New York City metro area worked together to pull off the events, as well as massive service projects that took place that weekend. There also were free events in Times Square and Madison Square Garden.

The artists who participated were humbled and energized by the opportunity, and were grateful to have been a part.

“[I] loved proclaiming that Jesus overcame the world and calls God's children overcomers too!” Mandisa posted on Facebook following her Times Square performance.

“So thankful for all the blood, sweat, tears and prayers of the saints that made this happen here in the City,” tweeted tobyMac.

The experience of playing for Palau's events was especially powerful for Matt Redman, who credited Palau with introducing him to Jesus years ago.

Though the event was powerful for countless people who made first-time decisions for Jesus and made recommitments to Him, it’s far from a one-time, flash in the pan event. The CityServe movement has allocated $10 million to help empower the churches to reach the city with the Gospel in words and deeds over the next three years, according to The Christian Post
