Seeds are invited to participate in a HOPE3 Weekend by a sponsor. The sponsor gets the seed to and from the weekend. The sponsor also participates in several activities during the weekend which actively demonstrates their support for the seed as well as his/her family. A critical element to sponsorship happens after the weekend.
Sponsors have committed to a six-month mentorship with their seeds. By doing this they are coming alongside them during an important growing stage. In this manner sponsors directly assist in the nurture the seeds and their families in their budding faith. In order for this to happen, HOPE3 provides a sponsor training that explains the weekend and post-weekend obligations. Sponsors are provided resource materials to assist them in working with the seed and his/her family both before and after the weekend experience.
If you are interested in serving as a sponsor for a HOPE3 Weekend participant, please complete the Sponsor Application and mail it to PO Box 444, Ruther Glen, VA 22546 or scan and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
