Dear Congreso Nation:

We pray this message finds you blessed and enjoying the new school year. We are in the midst of planning for Congreso 2015 and wanted to provide you with an update.

Since 2009, Congreso has had a wonderful partnership with Baylor University, with the campus hosting our event. Not only do they host us, they provide support, volunteers, and various other details that are all designed to minister to and show love to the Congreso Nation. They include us in their budget and this is a true financial blessing. It helps us keep registration fees from rising to an unmanageable level.

Baylor has once again opened their campus to us for 2015. The date for Congreso 2015 will be April 24-25, 2015, at the Ferrell Center. As you'll notice, rather than a Thursday-Saturday event, Congreso 2015 will be a Friday-Saturday event.

Here are some of the details we took in to consideration for our 2015 event:
This later date will allow groups more time to fundraise and invite new folks.
Because the event will not be on a holiday, classes at Baylor will be in session, and campus tours for youth groups should be more available and easier to set up.
Because the event will not be on a holiday, there is a greater likelihood that more mission opportunities will be available.
Because the event will not be on a holiday weekend, we wanted to minimize the school days missed for students. This is why the start date is moved from Thursday to Friday. In addition, the week of April 20-24 is a STAAR testing week in public schools, and we wanted to avoid any missed tests for students.
The event would end Saturday evening to allow time for groups to return home for Sunday morning services.
Additional ministry/training/educational opportunities will be added during the "free time" in order to provide options for groups to participate.

We want you and your group to know that we value you and did not make this decision lightly. We appreciate so much that you invest your time and money to attend, and we want to be the best stewards we can of the gifts you so sacrificially give.

We will keep you posted on specific details for the event, and as always, feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions you might have.

In addition, please continue to keep the Hispanic Evangelism office in prayer as we seek a new director. We continue to pray for you, and look forward to what God will do through your group at Congreso 2015.
