An Argentina-born evangelist will speak at this Sunday, marking Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the launch of an area-wide volunteer push.

The area-wide effort will end in June, when the Luis Palau Sacramento Festival is held at Cal Expo. The two-day festival will include Christian music and extreme sports performances.
As of Tuesday, some of the needs listed on the festival website include a call for volunteers at a free clinic day in Roseville, requests for mentors and a Citrus Heights group that needs a gas stove.
Luis Palau will speak at Capital Christian Center (9470 Micron Ave.) at 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and noon on Sunday. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration at 5:30 p.m.
