Bethel Speaker Service Talk
From time to time a congregation has the privilege of a Bethel Speaker Visit. Under normal circumstances they would visit the congregation and spend time with them in the ministry and at the meetings over the weekend. In some circumstances these visits have been done remotely via videoconference.
A new Special Event (Bethel Speaker Service Talk) has been added to the Special Events Manager for this purpose. The Bethel Speaker Service Talk button becomes visible when you select this event. Clicking the button will display a new popup window for you to provide extra information to display on the schedule.
As a minimum you will need to keyin:
The rest of the assignments are optional and will be omitted from the schedule.
The Workbook-S-140-PublicTalk-WatchtowerStudy-ServiceTalk-Videoconference standard template has been updated to display this new event.
Here is an example of how these events look like on the schedule when you use the customized Workbook-S-140-PublicTalk-WatchtowerStudy-ServiceTalk-Videoconference template (supplied with the installer).
Read the Advanced Customization help topic to find out how to update your own custom templates to include this new special event.
