Journey Through Scripture Presenter Instructions and Information

The information on this sheet is provided as a guide to how you can access different materials and services we offer to Presenters and to describe those materials and services. As we are constantly working to improve Journey Through Scripture, the series is often updated. For this reason, please make sure the St. Paul Center has your current contact information (especially email) so that we can include you in any updates and announcements about the series. As part of the Journey Through Scripture “package” you receive at training, you will find a disk that contains: The PowerPoint Presentation Presenter Notes Scripture Cards PowerPoint Viewer Patch (see section “Technical Support for PowerPoint” below)

(A dvd version of the PowerPoint presentation that can be “played” is available upon request. This is for use in situations where a video projector (for the PowerPoint presentation) may not be available.) The only further item you need to obtain is the Participant Workbook or Genesis to Jesus book for your attendees (see below).

Participant Workbooks & Genesis to Jesus Book
Once you know how many people are attending your study, it is time to order your Participant Workbooks for “Bible and the Mass” or “Bible and the Sacraments,” or the Genesis to Jesus book for the Genesis to Jesus study. These contain the Student Notes and Student Outlines for all the sessions of your study and are to be handed out at the first session of your study. They cost $7.50/each. There are currently two different ways to order Participant Workbooks and the Genesis to Jesus Book: 1. Call us at 740.264.9535 and place your order over the phone. 2. Mail your order and check to: Journey Through Scripture c/o St. Paul Center 2228 Sunset Blvd., Ste 2A Steubenville, OH 43952

Journey Through Scripture
In the box that arrives with your order you will find a large self- addressed stamped envelope and registration cards which will be used for registration and certificates (see below). You will also receive one set of loose-leaf Student Notes and Student Outlines for people who did not register in time to receive the Participant Workbook the first week. Simply make copies as necessary and call us to order any extra Participant Workbooks you may need. You may also order The Lamb’s Supper and Swear to God for $15.00/ea, or A Father Who Keeps His Promises for $10.00/ea from the St. Paul Center at the same time you order your Participant Workbooks. These are the books on which the studies are based. Please allow 10 days from the time we receive the order for delivery of all materials. (You may need to allow a little extra time if you are ordering around a holiday.) Note: The St. Paul Center does not accept returns of unused Participant Workbooks or other purchases. Please do not over-order your materials.

How To Use the PowerPoint Presentation with the Presenter otes
Journey Through Scripture needs at least two people to be presented effectively. The Presenter giving the study is assisted by another person operating the PowerPoint presentation from a computer (or a dvd player if necessary). The assistant working the PowerPoint uses the exact same Presenter Notes as the Presenter to follow along and “click” (using the down arrow on the keyboard or another button depending upon the type of keyboard/computer) whenever there is a new slide or when there is a ● or ○. It’s that easy. In this manner, the PowerPoint presentation follows right along with the Presenter.

Registering Your Class
On the first night of your class you will pass out the Participant Workbooks or Genesis to Jesus books. Each participant will find a registration card in their book or Workbook. (Extra cards will be sent to you for people who didn’t register in time to receive a Participant Workbook.)

Journey Through Scripture
Please do the following to register your class: 1. Have each participant fill out the card and return it to you. 2. Put all the registration cards (and the Presenter Registration Card you received) in the self-addressed stamped envelope that arrived with the Participant Workbooks or Genesis to Jesus books and put it in the mail back to the St. Paul Center.

Marketing
To help advertise your study, Presenters can request the creation of 8.5x11 color and black/white “posters” for church bulletin boards and bulletin inserts. Samples of the posters can be found at www.salvationhistory.com/jts. <Note: The St. Paul Center does not print posters for you. Rather, we create an electronic version of the poster and email it to you so that you can print as many copies as needed.> To obtain Posters for your study: 1. Email all the pertinent information (i.e. location, time, dates, registration contact information, and cost) to jts@salvationhistory.com. 2. The St. Paul Center will create your posters and email them back to you. Please indicate in the subject line of your email it is a poster request.

Another feature we offer Presenters is Email Advertising. When you are ready to advertise your study, send us an email at jts@salvationhistory.com including the pertinent information (like with the poster…location, time, dates, registration contact info, cost, etcc…) as well as the zip code of the study location (e.g. the parish where the study is being held). We can then send a note out to everyone on our St. Paul Center email list in that area telling them about your Journey Through Scripture study.

Journey Through Scripture Certificates
We have discovered that offering personalized certificates is both an incentive for participants to come to the sessions and a good way to finish the entire study. These are offered to you free of charge. In order to receive certificates for your study, all you need to do is make sure you send us the registration cards described in the “Registering Your Class” section above. We will create the certificates for everyone and mail them back to you. It’s that simple! You will receive certificates for everyone who registers for the class. These are to be handed out at the last session of the study. <Note: If there are some people who, in your opinion should not receive a certificate, simply don’t give them one.>
