WHAT HAPPENS ON A WEEKEND?
Vida Nueva begins Friday afternoon and ends the following Sunday evening. The Vida Nueva team leading the weekend is composed of former attendees of Vida Nueva, Tres Dias, Chysallis or similar youth weekends, who have volunteered their time for weeks of preparation by working and praying together as a unit. Vida Nueva presents the basics of Christian life and the meaning of living the Christian ideal and its application in our daily lives. Vida Nueva is centered around lay and clergy talks. Each talk is discussed by table groups. The basic atmosphere of Vida Nueva is one of love, Christian fellowship, singing, laughing and worship.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
You must be sponsored by an adult or student that has attended a Vida Nueva, Chysallis, Tres Dias or Cursillo type weekend.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND A WEEKEND?
All young men and women, from age 15 to age 20 at the beginning of the weekend, who are seeking a deeper and more meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ, are welcome to attend a Vida Nueva weekend. There are separate weekends held for young men and young women. Each attendee must be sponsored by someone who has previously attended a Vida Nueva, Tres Dias or Cursillo type weekend.
THE FOURTH DAY?
One’s life after Vida Nueva is called the Fourth Day. Following Vida Nueva, a person is able to expand his/her own spiritual life and become a more active disciple of Jesus Christ in the world, in the Church and in their school. During this time, encouragement is important and is provided through contact with the Vida Nueva community. Reunions of smaller groups within local churches and schools are encouraged so that the participants may help one another in living the Christian life.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER VIDA NUEVA?
Something unique to the Tampa Bay Community is the follow-up leadership conference. All those attending Vida Nueva will be able to have the opportunity to be strengthened in their 4th day. Special conferences designed to meet the needs of young Christian leaders will be available.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
