My name is Mark Gomez. I passed Encuentros 169 in the fall of 2010. Encuentros has been a family and a home away from home for me, literally and figuratively. My parents and brothers were all members and leaders in Encuentros at some point. I credit Encuentros with my growth as a leader in the Church and in my professional life. Thankfully, I have been serving as a leader for a majority of my time at Encuentros. Since October 2018, I have been serving as the Coordinator. Sadly, my time at Encuentros will be coming to an end in the next few years and I cannot thank God enough for the opportunity to serve Him and the Church through such a beautiful movement. Enceuntros has taught me so much. I am sure that the lessons learned will lead me in all aspects of life.
