The members of this team served as theological and pastoral advisors for ¡El Futuro Is Here! and worked en conjunto (together) to help shape the entire conference. They advised on content, assisted in outreach among colleagues and peers for participation in the conference, and helped to plan the encuentro spaces where participants shared their experiences and learned 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.
