Why Is Tres Dias So Special? There are two things that make every Tres Dias weekend special!
The first, and most important, is prayer! Once a person completes a weekend, they become part of the Tres Dias “Community”. The community is made aware of the weekend schedules, and it is the responsibility and desire of the community to hold each weekend up in prayer! These weekends are literally “bathed” in prayer, love, and support.
The second is the support of the Tres Dias Community. Very often, people are touched by God’s Love in a powerful way on their weekend, and it becomes their desire to share that experience with others. It is this “community” of believers that support the weekends with their prayers and their physical labors. Christians work behind the scenes of every weekend to make certain that the needs of the candidates are met!
What Do I Have To Do?
Anyone who wishes to attend a weekend must be sponsored by someone who has previously completed a weekend. This person or couple is called the Sponsor. The sponsor carries significant responsibility to assure that the candidate’s family is taken care of, so the candidate can focus on the activities of the weekend and not worry about what’s happening at home.
See your sponsor and ask him or her to get you an application to fill out. Once this is filled out and returned to your sponsor then he/she will do the rest.
Once accepted on a weekend, you will be provided with a list of recommended items to bring (such as blankets, pajamas, etc). Other than that, your sponsor will take care of all other details. All you have to do is walk out of your front door, as your sponsor will even take you to the send-off point.
What if I have special needs (such as diet or medication)? Be sure to let your sponsor know of these needs in advance. Any special diet can be accommodated. If medication is needed during the night or at special times, members of the team will awaken you as needed and even bring a glass of water if needed!
How may I attend a Tres Dias weekend? Weekend information, including informational brochure and application is available on our weekend web page. Request more information using our contact form!
What Tres Dias Is Not! Tres Dias is a “once in a lifetime” experience. Once a person has attended a weekend, they are not permitted to attend again as a candidate. They are encouraged to serve as a team member on a future weekend. Following the weekend, candidates are strongly encouraged to participate in small “share groups” or “home groups” (referred to in Tres Dias lingo as “reunion groups”).
It is NOT intended to become an alternative to your home church or practice of worship.
It is not a denomination, nor is it designed to become a focal point of worship, other than during the particular weekend.
Essentially, Tres Dias is the expression of unmerited Christian love exhibited by the Father through His people! It is the desire of the Tres Dias Community that candidates will return to their home churches with the empowerment of a revitalized relationship with Jesus Christ through His Holy Spirit!
What Tres Dias Is! Tres Dias is a three-day religious experience, which utilizes modern group techniques to bring the candidate into a renewed relationship with fellow Christians, the Church, and Christ. It can be physically and emotionally tiring. If you have physical infirmities or an emotional problem for which you have had or are now having treatment, Tres Dias may not be for you.
