Guidelines for Pastors and Conference Organisers
If you would like us to teach in your church or conference, we would appreciate the following fairly simple requests:
When you know we are coming, please advertise our meetings, and arrange the venues. For suggested advertising available on this web site, please visit ADVERTISING
EVANGELISTIC SPEAKING VENUES
Please also arrange, if possible, for us to speak in schools, in hospitals, and on radio and TV. We are flying from the UK, and it is a long way for us to come to you!
We will pay for our airfares. They are expensive, but you do not need to worry about the cost of them! However, we do not want to come to your country, only to find no itinerary has been arranged, as has occasionally happened in the past!
We make no charge for coming to your country, or for giving the free lectures.
Please advise us about the need for Visas to your country.
We are coming to help with Evangelism, and Bible teaching. We believe that you will be greatly blessed by these meetings, and that there will be very many new converts to Jesus Christ. There usually are! Please visit RECOMMENDATIONS FROM PASTORS IN 24 COUNTRIES about our free evangelistic ministry from pastors all over the world.
Please arrange for us to meet the leaders of your church as early as possible. Please give us a church brochure, if there is one, and a list of the names of the church leaders, and contact telephone numbers.
We would like to teach "EVANGELISM IS EASY" in your church or conference, if you would like this. This is a practical exercise, and your people will learn to lead people to Jesus Christ themselves from day one. Please think about this! A good idea would be for those interested to meet on a Saturday afternoon for practical tuition for 30 minutes before Richard and Val, with your people, all move to the streets, beaches, hospitals, and parks. Hospitals are often a very good place to start! You may be very surprised at the results!
We expect you to kindly meet us at the airport, and provide ALL transport to speaking venues.
WE DO NOT DRIVE CARS IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!
We have tried this, and we usually get lost! On one occasion, in South Africa, 2,500 people were waiting to hear us speak, but we never found the church! What is easy for you, is very difficult for us!
ADEQUATE TIME FOR TEACHING SESSIONS
In a normal church service please allow sufficient time (60 minutes maximum) for the teaching. If 60 minutes is too long for your service, please advise us, and we will make the presentations shorter! We will always keep to your allocated time. We have often flown by plane for several thousand miles, at considerable cost to ourselves, to come to you. Please be considerate and allow us sufficient time to present our life changing information to you! Nobody can cover Creation and Evolution in 10 minutes!
SHORT MID-WEEK SERVICES
Please do NOT spend the first hour of the service with worship and church notices, unless the service is a 2 hour service!
Please make sure you are happy with our material, and our subjects. We do not want to fly to your church or organisation, to find that you have doctrinal problems with our speaking subjects!
If necessary, please provide a good interpreter, with a good understanding of English. The interpreter must a genuine born again Christian.
Please arrange a large screen, placed centrally in the church or conference building. TV screens are too small for our presentations, because nobody can read the writing! If you have TV screens in your church, then please arrange a screen or blank wall as well. We also need to read the writing, since we do not use notes! We use the actual images and text on the screen to present our material.
MICROPHONE AND SOUND AMPLIFICATION AT EVERY SINGLE MEETING
At every single meeting, please arrange for a microphone and sound amplification. Many churches and organisations already have this. The reason is that if Richard is speaking for many hours a day, his voice gets very hoarse unless there is a sound system.
We will bring our own laptop, projector and a DVD player to show the movies, if you would like to see them. They are wonderful for evangelism in your community.
YOUR OWN PC OR LAPTOP
If you possess your own PC or laptop Richard will freely download the entire teaching on this web site onto your PC or laptop from a portable hard disc. This includes 2 books, 2 movies, and 12 PowerPoint presentations, as well as all the teaching on this web site. It is a very large file! You are free to use all of the teaching after we have gone, and to copy it and distribute it.
YOUR OWN PROJECTOR AND DVD PLAYER
If you already have a working projector or a DVD player, please let us know, so that we do not have to bring ours. Please make sure they work before we leave ours behind!
You are most welcome to take audio and video recordings. If you do, we would be grateful if you would let us have a copy. Eventually we would like to put these on our web site.
Some churches kindly provide accommodation. Alternatively, we buy our own hotel accommodation. We would prefer to stay in a hotel, but we often stay in private homes.
Some churches provide us with food, but sometimes we pay for food ourselves. We do not have any special dietary requirements, and we do not have expensive tastes! Richard cannot eat very hot curries. Please make mild ones!
LAUNDRY IS A PROBLEM FOR US
We would really appreciate your help with this, since we have to travel very light, because of the weight of our equipment. We do not have many changes of clothes! We are quite used to washing our clothes in a washing machine. Alternatively, is there anyone in your church who could do our washing for us?
We drink bottled water whilst abroad. Please arrange to have 4 litres of bottled water at our accommodation on arrival, in case we cannot get to the shops before they close! The water in most counties is excellent, but foreigners like us sometimes can become ill because of the different elements in your water.
We have a laptop, and a lot of emails to keep up with! We usually buy a local ISP whilst we are with you, so that we can connect to the Internet. Alternatively we can use AOL, which works everywhere, but is very expensive. If you can help with this, it would be greatly appreciated.
WE WILL PAY FOR ALL INCIDENTAL COSTS
We will not present you with any bills, of any sort.
Richard likes to go jogging every day if it is safe. Richard does not jog, for example, in some parts of Pakistan or Jamaica! So please leave time for that if possible, preferably in the afternoons.
OUR FREE E-BOOKS
, , and BEYOND THE FINAL FRONTIERTHE FINAL FRONTIER may be freely downloaded from our web site.We will give them to you on CD or DVD.
THE TWO FREE MOVIES
We will also give you a free DVD of the cinema movies, THE FINAL FRONTIER and THE LAZARUS PHENOMENON and WHEN YOU DIE, WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO TO HEAVEN?
DVD OF ALL OF OUR MATERIAL
We will also give you free DVD's of all our FREE DVD's OF ALL OUR TEACHING, for you to use in your church after we have departed. They may be freely copied, but please do not alter them in any way.
PLEASE DO NOT SELL OUR FREE MATERIAL
It is absolutely forbidden to sell any of our free material to anyone, under any circumstances at all.
All of our material is free, and may be freely copied, but may not be sold under any circumstances at all.
We will not be discussing money with you at all, other than to present our teaching on CHRISTIANS AND MONEY, which is NOT an appeal for money!
We will not charge any fee of any kind, and we purposely do not sell any material of any kind. All of our material is freely available on this web site.
Please indicate to us that by e-mail you agree to these terms before we come!
REFERENCES FOR OTHER PASTORS
Please provide e-mail thoughts about our visit after we have left. This is useful for other pastors, and also helps us to alter our teaching in light of experience.
