DeColores, Community Leader,
The Membership Committee is looking for additional liaisons to join our team. You may have people in your community who might be a good fit for this important role. What is a TDI liaison? It’s a person or couple who work closely with existing communities and is their connect point to Tres Dias International Membership
Committee, as well as the representative who works with emerging communities and their sponsoring communities to guide them from initial startup to Charter.
What does this entail? Liaisons keep in touch with their communities regularly and are available as a resource to answer or qualify questions. They are available for prayer support and guidance, if needed. Once, every three years, the liaison travels to the community to present the essentials for charter renewal. This involves a
pre-training visit with the local leadership where many new and rewarding relationships are formed. Many of our liaisons may visit their communities more frequently if time and distance allow, and many visit via Zoom.
1) Meets Leadership Qualifications in TDI bylaws
2) Thorough knowledge and understanding of the Essentials
3) Local secretariat experience required: Chairperson or Leaders experience
4) TDI experience as Secretariat member or served on a committee
5) Former Rector
6) Live in the Region you will be serving
1) Experience with starting and serving in new communities
2) Service on International weekends (Required if Int’l Community Liaison)
3) Good listening and communication skills
4) Experience with conflict resolution
5) Servant’s heart, servant/leader
6) Relationship oriented
7) Even temperament, not easily upset
8) Comfortable with public speaking
9) Strong discernment skills
If you have anyone in your community that is interested, have them contact the VP of Membership, Bill Shoemaker at Membershipvp@tresdias.org or call/text and leave a message at 678-524-7463.
Thanks for your cooperation and help,
TDI VP of Membership

Greetings Treasure Valley Tres Dias Family! Here we are in December, the final month of 2022 and a new year right around the corner. But first we observe what is most people's favorite holiday, Christmas. Christmas is a primarily Christian holiday that celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. Many will attend church, have family parties and exchange gifts.
Want some ideas of how to share the love of Christ as you gather and prepare for your activities.
Ways to show God's love with actions:
These are just a few simple suggestions and ideas. We are sure you have many ways to share God's love with your family and friends. We hope you have a blessed and loving Holiday Season!
In the last few months you have heard talk of fundraisers and donations for Scholarships, but just what is that all about you may ask?
Here is some explanation:
Don't let the cost deter sponsoring a Candidate. Seek help by asking! Bring the need for help to your Weekend Leaders: Angie Meyer and Adele Crownover or any Secretariat member and we will discuss what your needs are and what is available to help get your Candidates to the Weekend!
The Story Behind the Cross
You've seen it everywhere when you look at Tres Dias articles, websites, even at our Weekends. The Stained Glass Cross of Tres Dias. There is a history and symbolic meaning surrounding it.
Note that the Cross has 15 pieces of stained glass, one for each of the 15 rollos that are contained in a Tres Dias Weekend. The 15 pieces fit together to form this symbol of God's Love just as each rollo fits together in sequence to communicate that love throughout the weekend.
This Cross was made and given as a gift to a Rector on a North Georgia Tres Dias Weekend many years ago and since has been used as a symbol for Tres Dias throughout the many communities and in many different ways. You will see it on websites, coffee mugs, t-shirts, in our beautiful Treasure Valley Tres Dias banner lovingly created by Trina Leininger, and many other places.
Its fun to know that it was created especially for Tres Dias, and has such a significant meaning to our Communities!
