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.
