Nuestro Team

The members of this team are serving as theological and pastoral advisors for ¡El Futuro Is Here! and work en conjunto (together) to help shape the entire conference. They advise on content, assist in outreach among colleagues and peers for participation in the conference, and help to plan the encuentro spaces where participants are able to share their experiences and learn from conference presenters and one another. Their professional and personal lives weave together a rich diversity of experiences in Latinx faith communities and ministry settings.
