Louis Palau movie—importance of discipleship–mentors

In “Palau the Movie,” Reeves (“Nashville”) plays Palau’s mentor, Ray Stedman. The late evangelical Christian pastor of Peninsula Bible Church in Palo Alto, California, found Palau on that street corner in Argentina. He saw something special in Palau and offered him a pathway to the United States where he would later attend Dallas Theological Seminary.

“Luis has fire and that was apparent from a young age and Stedman knew that if that was channeled in the right way then he could do great things and become who he is today and reach the amount of people he reached.”

According to statistics by WACMM, “90 million men are not involved in any kind of discipleship. Only 6 million men are involved in discipleship — 1 out of every 18 men. More than 90 percent of American men believe in God, and five out of six call themselves Christians. But only two out of six attend church on a given Sunday.”

In addition, “Fewer than 10 percent of U.S. churches are able to establish or maintain a vibrant men’s ministry and fewer than 1 percent of churchgoing men participate in any sort of ongoing men’s ministry program.”

However, Palau’s influence shows what can happen when men come together to build each other up as they share the Gospel with the world.
