Aftercare for Pescadores on their 4th Day

Aftercare for Pescadores on their 4th Day

By Jeb Harper

 Be sure you know your flocks, give careful attention to your herds. Proverbs 27:13

The better you know your candidate, the easier it will be to provide opportunities for them to stay engaged after the weekend.There are two kinds of opportunities: Tres Dias opportunities and personal opportunities.

     Tres Dias Opportunities:

  • The first opportunity is at the closura: Invite special people from the community.This builds support.
  • Reunion groups are critical! Identify any obstacles (gas money, distance, etc.) and solve them. Consider helping start a new group.
  • Secuelas, send-offs, and serenades/mananitas–these events keep them involved. Encourage them to serve on the next team. Offer to serve with them.

    Personal Opportunities:

  •  I like to call the next day after the weekend–regular contact in the first weeks is very important. Visit their church. Fellowship one-on-one.
  • Bonfires, cookouts, etc.
  • Invite them to Christian concerts, special events, Bible studies
  • Seek unique ways to show them the love of Christ.

     Sponsorship is serious business. Be persistent. The payback comes when acquaintances turn into life-long friends and followers of Christ.
