Hosting a Scriptorium is a great way to bring God's people together around the Word of God. Each Scriptorium has been a blessing to all who attended as they were able to hear large portions of the Bible recited from memory. Your event could be a few hours on a Saturday afternoon, or a two or three day event like has been held in Kansas City, Omaha, and Ohio.
If you would like to host a Scriptorium in your city or church, we would be glad to help. We can assist in any way you are needing, from overseeing the entire event, or simply guiding you along the way. We can provide you with templates for name tags, bulletins, and even ideas on which passages to recite.
Here are the initial steps you would take to host your own Scriptorium:
1st: Secure a location to host the Scriptorium
2nd: Lock in on some dates: it could be an afternoon, a full day, 2 days, or even 3 days. First time Scriptoriums are best if shorter until you get the idea. I would recommend a half day or evening.
3rd: Decide how many people you think you can get to participate. If each person takes one chapter, or a family or group of people share a chapter, how many chapters do you think you can reasonably fill?
4th: Decide about out of town guests: is this more for local people (your church, community, etc...), or do you want to get others to join you from out of town? If so, can you find host families to provide lodging, etc?
5th: Supply us with the info and we will set up the event on this website
6th: Begin promoting the event and have people go to the website to choose a chapter
If you would like to discuss the possibility of a Scriptorium in your location, please let us know! We will contact you back and discuss ideas and talk about the possibilities. Please include your phone number in the message box. We look forward to hearing from you!
