Your Hosts

Sonalia Ramirez

I’m Sonalia a Puerto Rican-Mexican American who has been on staff for 3 years a Northern Illinois University. I enjoy working with Latino students to help them on their faith walk and their ethnic journey. As a student I led LaFe bible studies and events. My desire, as a LaFe staff, is that YOU would come and join us for Encuentro to allow God to meet you personally and communally and of course to have fun!

Jenny Galindo-Sanchez

Hello friends, my name is Jenny, I graduated from Northern Illinois University and came on staff to work with Latinx students in Chicago such as the University of Illinois at Chicago. My current favorites things are playing Among Us, watching the Masked Singer and going on walks at the park with my puppy Joey and my husband Horacio!

Familia

Gathering our familia is such an essential part of who we are. At Encuentro you’ll find yourself surrounded by a familia of students across Indiana & Illinois. This kingdom familia at Encuentro is one you will not want to miss out on. YOU have a place at the table, come. Let’s spend some meaningful time in community while we grow and laugh together.

Alabanza

Our diverse backgrounds allow us to worship in a variety of ways and our unique stories influence how we worship. We want to be able to provide you with the space to worship God, the one who blesses us all. Come dance, sing, paint and pray. Familia, let’s give praise to our Rey.

Acción

We are a familia that mobilizes towards action. God has given us the Spirit that enables us to use our voices and experiences to impact the places we are at. As we praise God and grow as a communidad, we are always asking Holy Spirit what’s next? Join us to become the movement of Latinx students your campus needs.
