Wear your "Sunday Best"

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: Come before his presence with singing.
Psalm 100:1-2

If your spouse, fiancé, or significant other is a candidate, by Tres Dias tradition you may not attend serenade.

Prayer Wheel Sign Up

The North Texas Tres Dias #75 Weekends are very quickly approaching, and we know that the teams are doing their very best to prepare to give their all to serve the Candidates who will be attending.  As the community, it is our responsibility to make a petition of prayer on behalf of the candidates, team, and Rectors.

The most impactful way of praying is signing up for the 24/7 Palanca Prayer Wheel.  Remember, everyone who signs up to pray will have their name displayed during the weekend to show the candidates how the community is supporting them.


With our new community portal, we have a way of signing up for the Weekend Prayer Wheels!  You can do this on the new community portal at, sign in or register for a account.  



Please, don't forget to



Palanca is always needed

on the Tres Dias Weekends!  You can be the "lever" that will help someone on the weekend see Jesus working in their lives.  So, get your Reunion Groups together and start hot glueing!

Did you know that you don't have to be on the team to write a "General Palanca Letter?"  The candidates would be so blessed to see your prayer and blessing for them on the walls or in their Palanca bags!

You can drop off your Palanca during Send Off, or Serenade.  Don't forget to make more than you think you should! Prepare for 42 candidates, and at least 80 team.


If you think you are not ready to be a sponsor, think again…you ARE! God equips the called!

It is not too late to sponsor a friend, relative, or church member to attend NTTD Weekend #75!  

Read the wonderful article in the March Newsletter by Ann Ethridge.  She expertly exhorts the community to share this opportunity in love.

THEME:  True Potential

VERSE: Proverbs 19:21


SONG:  Nothing Else by Cody Carnes

We are done with all our team meetings, and we all getting ready for the men’s weekend. I know God has a lot in store for us all!


We are all super excited for the weekend, but still ask for prayer over all team, candidates, and family. We know God will show up in so many ways. He has this weekend planned, prepared, and he will lead us all to be Jesus with skin on.


If y'all have someone in mind to send through, please begin to pray on It now. Remember sponsorship isn't over after the weekend. In fact your role is probably more important as a support cast to disciple the candidates and help get them plugged in.

Prez Points


After I went through Tres Dias, I tried to develop some good habits that I wasn't currently doing. One of my favorites was a daily email devotional with a prayer by Os Hillman. In his message entitled "The Way of God" he spoke of how God trains leaders, and it seems applicable in our ministry:

There are three patterns of preparation that have been common among most of God's leaders.


  1. There is a time when the leader is separated from his old life. Consider Moses, Joseph, Abraham, and Paul. In order for God to mold and shape them into His nature, it appears that He had to remove them from the life of comfort. A teacher once said, "You cannot go with God and remain where you are."

  2. There is usually a time of solitude. God often brings leaders into a time of solitude in order to speak to them without other distractions. Hosea 2:14b says, "I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her." Paul was sent to Arabia for two years for a time of solitude. Joseph spent years in the solitude of prison. Moses spent 40 years in the desert herding sheep.

  3. God's preparation for leaders is discomfort. The setting in which the preparation takes place usually is not a place of comfort. Abraham traveled through the difficult deserts. David lived in caves fleeing Saul. Paul was frequently persecuted.


Are you ready for God's leadership preparation? If God is ready for you to step into leadership, you my have one of these reactions.


  1. You may say, "I don't need it." Perhaps you know intellectually that you do need this, but God wants you to know it in your heart. Pride prevents us from entering this classroom.

  2. Your reaction may be, "I'm tired of it." You decide you've had enough. If so, this will disqualify you from leadership.

  3. Finally, God's desired response from us in this preparation is, "I accept it." To accept it with joy is the place of maturity in Christ. God often keeps us in these places until we come to accept and agree that Jesus is enough. Is He all you need?


Are you ready for the process required for being a godly leader? Ask for His grace to willingly embrace these times of preparation.
