The festival began as part of United Methodist’s Hispanic ministries, which includes a weekly Hispanic service, English as a Second Language classes and Spanish classes, as well as providing accommodation services, such as transportation to doctors appointments, to those in need.

Whittenberger said the ministry began after a Touched Twice clinic in 2007. Touched Twice is an organization of local churches, including United Methodist, that helps fulfill community needs through medical and provisional clinics once a year. Sing out: Church to hold bilingual music festival.
