As a sponsor, please review the following list of responsibilities to ensure that you can fulfill this commitment. Then, once you have completed the sponsors form, you will receive an email from us outlining each of these reponsibilities in even greater detail:


  1. Fill out the online Sponsors Form
  2. Attend a Sponsorship Training
  3. Pray and enlist prayer support from family, friends and their pastor or youth pastor
  4. Invite your caterpillar to Chrysalis, share your experience and ask them to fill out their Flight Application

  6. Assist us in getting the online Reference Form filled out and sent in by a pastor, youth pastor or a teacher/counselor

Fly with Christ!

It is very important that sponsors assume all of these responsibilities or that you enlist the assistance of other members from our community to help fulfill each of these steps. Thank you, again, for considering this responsibility! We look forward to working with you toward this great experience for your caterpillar and to your success during this wonderful sponsorship opportunity. If you have any questions, please reach out to any of our board members listed on our website.

Next steps

As you prayerfully consider this special opportunity to step into sponsorship, please also consider taking the next step and filling out our Sponsor's form. Sending in the sponsor's form will let us know who you are thinking of sponsoring and will serve as a way to make contact with your caterpillar, and their pastor or youth pastor about attending our next Chrysalis Flight!
