womens candidate sponsor form
Sponsor: Please read and complete the following:

Except for the name and address, all information provided will be kept in strictest confidence. This form must be completed and submitted before the candidate can be accepted for Tres Dias.

Sponsorship must be viewed as a total commitment, not just a partial act of selection. Sponsorship means to help one become more of a leader for Christ through the Tres Dias experience. As a sponsor, consider the following:

1) Recognition that Tres Dias is not for everyone. Offering Tres Dias to someone comes only after I am willing to make a significant commitment to that person. If I am not willing to make that commitment, I should not sponsor.

2) Am I willing to make a significant commitment to my candidate Before, During and After the weekend? If I am a member of the team have I found someone to fulfill the sponsor duties during the weekend? (See Weekend Support below)

3) Have I honestly looked at my reasons for sponsoring?

4) Do I know my candidate, or do I just know about them?

5) Have I prayed for guidance and sought counsel with other experienced Pescadors, if needed? Is this the right time for the candidate?

6) Do I feel comfortable sponsoring my candidate's spouse? (If possible, the applications for married couples should be submitted at the same time to assure placement of the wife on the next women's weekend.)

7) Have I discussed the suggested donation with my candidate? (Sponsors are not required to pay for their candidate's weekend but need to make arrangements for the payment by someone.)

8) Are they actively seeking a closer walk with the Lord?

Weekend support includes:
Arrange transportation to and from the weekend.
Pray for your candidate at all times.
Provide palanca for the candidate.
Attend closing and Mananitas.
Provide sufficient palanca from others to receive throughout the weekend.
Offer to help the candidate's family (baby sitting, meals etc.)
Notify the candidate's clergy that he/she will be attending this weekend.
For further guidelines ask your local secretariat.

Fourth Day support includes:
The sponsor should recognize that a long term commitment is being made to the candidate by sending the candidate to Tres Dias. The sponsor should help the new pescador to live the fourth 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 Fourth Day.

are you prepared for your sponsorship responsibilities as outlined above in 'Weekend support' and 'Fourth Day support'?

do you agree in prayer and before the Lord, to fulfill your responsibilities as sponsor to your candidate?

security question: how many days is Tres Dias?
