Congreso 2011 // For the third straight year, the Baylor campus welcomed thousands of Hispanic Baptist youth over Easter weekend 2011 for Congreso, a bilingual event organized by the Baptist General Convention of Texas (BGCT) to inspire, encourage and educate Hispanic youth. Baylor President Ken Starr was on hand to welcome the crowd of more than 7,000 students and leaders from about 160 churches as Congreso began; weekend speakers included Lubbock pastor Tiny Dominguez, San Antonio evangelist Sammy Lopez, and Hispanic Baptist Convention of Texas President Jesse Rincones. In yet another Baylor connection, the David Crowder Band performed the event�s closing concert on Saturday. During the weekend, more than 2,000 students made public commitments to Christ, including 1,000 who professed faith for the first time.
