  • How many and which local churches will you have participate?
  • Do you need permission/authorization to read?
  • Are permits needed?
  • Can security for the readers be arranged? (Many young people will want to stay the whole time.)
  • Do you want to distribute Bible?
  • How many chairs? Tables? Restrooms? Lighting?
  • Who will set-up? Dismantle and clean up?
