Everyone that attends a Tres Dias Weekend can probably think of a few people they would love to share the experience with. That is the heart of Tres Dias Weekends... Sponsoring a Candidate to the next weekend.
Sponsorship is a vital part of the Tres Dias movement, if the community is to grow spiritually and numerically. The only way a person may become a candidate is to be sponsored by someone that has already attended a Tres Dias weekend. Sponsorship is a serious responsibility, the sponsor should seek God’s will and guidance through prayer as to whom to sponsor and be sensitive in approaching a potential candidate.
The Sponsor should recognize that a long-term commitment is being made to the Candidate by sending the Candidate to a Tres Dias weekend. The weekend will not produce a permanent effect without Fourth Day involvement, and therefore, the sponsor should ‘sponsor’ the prospective candidate through all phases of the Tres Dias movement, rather than just the weekend.
The Sponsor should help the new Pescador to live the 4th Day as it is presented on the weekend, by encouraging the new Pescador to be an active and contributing member of a church body, by encouraging him/her to join or form a Reunion Group, attend Secuelas, and become involved in the local Secretariat. In general, the Sponsor should be responsive to the needs of a new Pescador until the Pescador is well established in the 4th Day.
This is the very reason why it is pretty important to already have a good relationship and friendship with the candidate you are sponsoring. Already knowing them, and who is important in their lives is very valuable in not only sponsoring for the weekend, but continuing to encourage and help them really fully be involved as a Pescador.
We have resources for you and ways to gain knowledge about what sponsoring a candidate means. You can find information here. You can also read about what information is available for the candidate.
Do you know that there is training available for Sponsors and EVERYONE who has attended a Tres Dias Weekend should take time to go through it! It may seem a little intimidating to sign up for it, but the process is really very simple and streamlined.
Take it now! You will learn something new about sponsoring, I guarantee it! :)
