At Congreso nearly 6,000 students were led in worship at the Ferrell Center on Baylor University's campus. Young people packed into the arena were led to the cross for redemption with 900 recorded decisions made for Christ; of those, 90 were called to vocational ministry and 300 were led to salvation!
"We continue seeing kids moved by the Spirit," said Frank Palos, director of Texas Baptists Hispanic evangelism efforts. "That's what it's all about."
Tiny Dominguez, a keynote speaker at Congreso and pastor of Community Heights Baptist Church in Lubbock, explains "This scene is precisely why God brought students to Congreso. God is calling people to have a relationship with Him. For many young people, Congreso was where that relationship began."
Among the first places students took their faith was to 10 Waco mission projects where they could share the hope of Christ. Students also gave more than $10,000 in offering taken during Congreso - more than $7,000 for college scholarships and more than $3,800 for a Congreso summer missions team.
Whether it was by a feeling, a tug at their heart or something more indescribable, young people were moved during Texas Baptists' evangelistic Congreso for Hispanic students.
