An Innovative Cycle of Evangelism
We are delighted to partner with the Texas Conference to provide the evangelism marketing resources for this evangelistic effort.

Image

The Texas Conference has a vision to create an innovative cycle of evangelism and make it available for all churches to adopt.  As part of this, we're assembling a cohort of 20 pilot churches to participate in the launch of this new evangelistic cycle, and we are so excited for you to join in this mission!

The Promise Prophecies is a year-long cycle of evangelism that includes Bible study leads and a reaping series. By joining us in this effort, you'll get:

Content for a 15-session reaping series, including video content and material for a guided discussion after each video. There is also a follow-up podcast for each session that guests can listen to. The dates for this series are April 21 - May 5.
A 1-year subscription to SermonView’s LeadGenerator, which guarantees new Bible study interests every month.
Training for your leaders and members on how to engage with Bible study interests and guests. Plus additional training and support with the software you'll be using to track your engagement with your leads.

About the Event

The Promise Prophecies

Spring 2023

OVERVIEW

Did the Bible predict the darkness and injustice we struggle with today?

Bible prophecies have been unfolding right in front of our eyes and have predicted human history with 100% accuracy. Global government chaos, natural disasters, wars and devastating sickness across the planet have all been foretold‚ÄĒand there is more to come.

The Promise Prophecies is designed for anyone interested in understanding the predictions of Daniel and Revelation or global issues and their affect on our lives today. Learn to decipher the prophecies of the Bible and understand what they mean for those living in last-day events. Pull back the veil of mystery and uncertainty, and give yourself a foundation of peace by understanding what the Bible says will happen next. 
You don‚Äôt have to live in fear. You can experience a revelation in your life and find the answers to start enjoying the life and opportunities God originally created you for. You‚Äôll see the prophecies of the Bible in a whole new way‚ÄĒfull of God‚Äôs bright promises.

Event Details

The Promise Prophecies is a full-message evangelistic series that will present the hope found in Revelation in a whole new way. For the reaping meeting, there are three innovative elements: the environment, the presentation, and the follow up podcast. For your environment, we are recommending you set up your sanctuary or meeting hall with tables, to help create a natural way to break out into small groups. If you cannot do tables, make sure that your chairs or pews are set up in a way that encourages people to gather towards the front, rather than spread out. And make sure you have people from your church in each row to help facilitate breakout sessions. The other innovative elements of the series are going to be provided by the Texas Conference. A professional video presentation and follow up podcast series will be provided for you to incorporate into your meetings.
Each session consists of 3 parts:
Your Guest Connection Team should try to be at each of the tables, or spread out in the larger group. Since we will be concluding each session with time for a guided discussion, it will greatly help your moderator if your team can fill in the gaps and engage in conversations too. This can help liven the discussion time, provide clarification for your guests, and allow leaders to be readily available in case someone asks deeper questions about what your church believes.

Video Presentation


Your guests will then watch a 30-minute video presentation with Evangelist Byron Corbett. These videos will be prerecorded from another local Texas presentation just a few weeks prior, so the content will feel fresh and as if it could be streaming live.

Local Moderator/Small Groups


The meeting will conclude with a breakout session. Either in small groups with table moderators, or as a larger group with the main moderator. The group(s) will discuss the topic from the video with moderator led questions for guidance. Scriptures will show how the Bible directly lines up with what was shared in each session.

Podcast Episodes


After each session a new podcast episode will be made available for all participants. This will be printed on their study guides and should be a fun way to connect with your guests beyond the nightly meetings. (All you’ll need to do is share the links and use them as a connection tool.)

Coordinating Bible Studies

We have a list of resources to help your audience better grasp God's promises and love for them. These items have been intentionally chosen to go along with this series and include this curated list of Bible studies that can be purchased directly from It Is Written.
Important Notes:  
1.
 Sessions 6, 12, and 15 each have two Bible study handouts.  
2. As the meetings progress, you can order less of each Bible study.  For example, if you think your opening night crowd will be 60 people, order 75 Bible studies for Session #1.  By Session #6, you could drop the order to 60, for example.  Keep lowering the number based on your best guess for crowd size.  By the last session, you may only need to order 30 or 40 Bible studies.  
3.  For your Sabbath morning sessions, make sure you order enough Bible studies to cover your Sabbath morning attendance since you are adapting your worship service to follow the session format, and most people will want a copy.

"What studies should I use?"

The online ads your leads see won't prescribe a specific Bible study, but rather, promote a theme. (You may end up offering a variety of Bible studies throughout the year.) Check the offer details within each lead's profile in InterestTracker to see the theme of the ad that they responded to. 

Considering the theme of each ad someone responds to allows you to choose the Bible study that best represents your church and also directly speaks to their interest, which will encourage continued connection.

Sample Social Media Ads:

Because we are constantly testing and adjusting our Bible study ads for improvement, these are not the only ads we will use for your campaign. These do, however, represent the ad themes we've seen work best.
Image

God Cares Theme

These ads are designed to resonate with people who might be feeling lost in the world and want to be grounded in God's love. Good studies for this theme will include those that focus on the character and love of God in the first few lessons.
Image

Prophecy Theme

This series of ads is focused on people that have a hunger for understanding what the Bible says about the direction of our world. Studies for this theme should stay focused on the power of biblical prophecy or what Christ's return might look like. Offer lessons that start off on that subject.

No matter the theme, each ad is clearly an offer to study the Bible.

The person completing the online form must click through several pages before officially requesting their Bible study, so you can be sure that your leads did not sign up by accident.

At the Door Connection Tip:

Make a good first impression by making the right introduction.
Image
So far the only brand your Bible study leads have seen is what was used on the ads which is  "My Free Bible Study". So make sure you wear your volunteer lanyard which displays the same logo and introduce yourself as part of the My Free Bible Study team. This will help them remember the request they made online and help your initial introduction start off on the right foot.
