Lake Union's Recap of Conectate 2023

June 8, 2023

If you missed one of the largest gathering of bi-lingual Hispanic youth on the campus of Andrews University last weekend, June 2-4, don’t worry—we captured the highlights. The youth congress featured more than 500 youth and young adults converging from the Lake Union territory and beyond to worship God and to bring joy to residents in Southwest Michigan and Northern Indiana.

One highlight of the weekend was hearing from the main speaker, digital influence and pastor, Arnaldo Cruz. With his infectious energy and uplifting messages, Pastor Arnaldo fearlessly tackled important and relevant topics that are often left unspoken in the church, and his words resonated deeply with the youth. As a result, several committed their lives to Christ and at the closure of the gathering, two were baptized.

This was the seventh time the Lake Union bi-lingual congress convened and the first one held in-person since the pandemic.
