In order to attend a Via de Cristo weekend you will need a sponsor and your pastor’s permission.Please ask your pastor if there is an active VDC community in your church. These are the folks who can sponsor you.If none exists, ask you pastor if he/she would be willing to participate with you. If so, we will help both of you find sponsors. This is how local VDC communities are begun.You can also simply apply and we will research our records to see if there are any VDC community members in your congregation willing to be sponsors.An application does not guarantee acceptance.Applicants who are not accepted for reasons other than overflow will not be reconsidered for this weekend, but can resubmit an application for a following weekend.Persons who have experienced recent trauma (death, divorce, marital problems, job loss, etc.) should consult with their pastor before applying.Applicants with concerns about the weekend are encouraged to talk with their pastors.Applicants should be open to speak with their pastor about their experience at Via de Cristo.
