This five-part series covers Bible prophecy, current world events, and the end times. Each session features a video experience from Shawn Boonstra, followed by group discussion lead by a local moderator. Your guests will explore the myths and will see incredible signs from today's news pointing to a coming cataclysmic event.
How It Works:
Step 1: Acquire Your Content
Voice of Prophecy produces high-quality video series and has packaged them into Church Campaign Editions for a simple way to purchase everything you need to run the series within one product. Plus, their license allows for online studies when you purchase a Church Campaign Edition and run the series as a private event.
Step 2: Set up Your Delivery Method
For this evangelism recipe, we recommend Zoom.
Zoom meetings are free up to 40 minutes, or if you want to offer more flexibility and have unlimited duration, you can upgrade to Zoom Pro. To learn more about Zoom, visit their pricing page at https://zoom.us/pricing. Once you have your account set up, you'll need to set up a meeting. For a quick tutorial on how to properly set up a meeting, watch Pastor Shane Anderson as he explains how to set up Zoom to his church members.
For an added level of interaction, you may want to create breakout sessions with a group leader. Zoom allows you to pre-build rooms from interests to ensure you have one to two leaders in each room. Click here to learn more about breakout sessions. Make sure each leader is familiar with basic interactive elements in Zoom such as screen share, or polling for meetings.
Step 3: Think Through Interactions
Each leader may want to find their own methods, but here are our recommendations for connecting through Zoom.
The Voice of Prophecy provides studies for each video lesson.
- Share a PDF copy with each student (whether solo or in a group).
- Screen share your copy of the lesson and use Zoom's Annotations if necessary.
- Pre-build any polls or questions you want to ask using the polls system. (optional)
- Regroup and talk about the next time you’ll meet with a teaser about the upcoming information.
USEFUL TIP: We recommend you prepare a small introduction and an ice breaker question to start engaging everyone and creating connection.
Step 4: Order Supplies and Marketing
As a guided study, decisions will come naturally and often through questions and answers. Always review the material ahead of time to prepare for the study you are about to watch.
Step 5: Start Your Marketing
You have everything in place to promote your series.
This Series can be promoted online (Facebook/Instagram/Google) or by using Jumbo card mailers.
Step 6: Keep Track of Attendance
Keeping track of interests is easy.
SermonView offers free software for your whole church with their online InterestTracker™ platform. Their AttendanceTracker module will allow you to receive registrations and have them check in each night with reminders from their automated system. InterestTracker will allow each small group leader to see the people they are working with in their group and make note of any additional interactions. Getting started with InterestTracker is free and easy. Sign up today and you'll find a complete tutorial section in the "help" tab.
Step 7: Plan Your Follow-Up
In this all-new version of The Appearing, Shawn Boonstra takes a closer look at the ancient prophecies of the Bible and pieces together a startling but undeniable picture of last-day events that may come as a surprise to many viewers. This series utilizes the precision of Bible prophecy to present a hope-filled and encouraging biblical view about the Second Coming of Christ—and it will take your breath away!
