Mail candidate applications to:


P.O. Box 1382

Goodlettsville, TN 37070

Attn: Pre-Weekend, Jackie Chaney

Please note: Any team member 17 years old or younger at the time of the weekend must have the parent or guardian’s signature notarized. 



Being a sponsor is a commitment not only to the teen, but to the Vida Nueva and Tres Dias Community. You must know the candidate well. Be honest with your candidate. The person you sponsor needs to know a weekend is a very busy and intensive learning experience in Christianity. Explain the basic format without giving away the fun surprises. Secrecy has no place in Vida Nueva or Tres Dias. Pray for the person you sponsor as they await their weekend encounter with Christ. You must be willing to provide support before, during and after the weekend.



Your gifts of palanca for the weekends may be God’s way for you to minister to the candidates.

Here are some ways you can participate:

Conference Room Palanca: Total – 50 (36 candidates, 12 table leaders, 1 each for Director, Youth Director). This can be containers for six tables or 50 individual items. Be sure to include some extras, as sometimes things break and need to be replaced or we have more than 36 candidates.

Candidate Bed Palanca: Total – 36. Please be sure that there is one for each candidate, plus a couple of

extra. We do not put out any “individual” bed palanca for candidates and if there’s not enough, it cannot be put out.

Team Bed Palanca: Total – 75. You may give individual bed palanca to a team member or members, or you may wish to give palanca to each team member. 

Kitchen Palanca: Total – 111. This is for the dining tables at meals. This palanca should be given to the Head Kitchen Chas to be used as needed.

Banner Palanca: Banners may be “theme” banners or a banner of your choice. They should be no larger than four feet wide by five feet long (4′ x 5′). Please give banners to the Palanca Chas with instructions and/or a note regarding when to present them if you have a preference.

There will be Palanca Chas at Send-Off to receive the palanca you have to give.
