It was a very special experience where, above all, it is worth noting the proximity and empathy that was generated between us by being able to open our hearts and minds to what the Gospel makes us feel. In the 2023 edition, we will open the call to more areas and not just management. We will also invite choir leaders, festival organizers, church leaders, facilitators, etc. and we will call it the European Gospel Congress, always with a close focus on fostering union and encouragement among us. The format will be the same as the good result of dividing it into four 1h15 blocks with two or three speakers in each, emphasizing the different issues that affect us. The contribution of each and everyone is very important so that the Congress, like the festival, can be a tool for everyone and everyone, since only then will we make it accessible and useful. Right now we have confirmed the presence as the speakers Daniel Thomas (UK), Fred Lewin (FR), Bazil Meade (UK), Didier Likeng (Cameroon), Joachim Arenius (SWE), Colin Vassell (UK), Monica Bernassola (ITA), Sebastian Sendzik (GER), Stefanie Brenzel (Ger), Malin Abrahamson (SWE), Keare Mc Donald (Ire), Ramon Escalé  and we are still awaiting some more confirmations, and at this time, the confirmed attendance of more than seventy directors mainly from the European continent.
