How to have a successful home concert with the Bostocks
Below are steps to help you have a successful home concert. Following each step will allow an easy and exciting event for your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers. They will be blessed!
Step 1. Make a List
Make a list of the people you want to invite to the concert:
friends, family, neighbors, co-workers. Call them 2 to 3 weeks before event and get their email or mailing address. Send them (email, mail, facebook) the invitation flyer that we create for you and that will include a RSVP request. 1 week prior to event, follow up with those who have not RSVP'd. (Tip: to have 20 people, invite 40).
Step 2. Invite
Invite your guests to bring a finger food or dessert. Provide paper goods and drinks (i.e. water, tea, coffee). Arrange for someone to help you with set-up / clean-up.
Step 3. Parking
Let your neighbors know about the event for parking.
Step 4. Seating
Prior to the Bostocks' arrival, have seating available for the event that will give each guest a good view like a "front row seat" experience. Request help from friends with furniture arrangement if needed.
Step 5. Product
The Bostocks will arrive about 1-1 1/2 hours prior to concert time. Have a space available for the Bostocks' two 4 ft. product tables that will allow your guests the opportunity to make donations and to purchase CD's, DVD's, etc., that are vital for this ministry to continue.
Step 6. Adults Only
Due to space limitations for most concerts, this will be an adults only event to allow for a more intimate experience for every guest.
Step 7. Prayer Cards
As guests arrive, pass out prayer cards and drawing tickets that the Bostocks provide.
Step 8. Information
At the start of the event, greet everyone and explain:
-where the restrooms are
-where to start the food line
-there will be about 30 minutes for the food and fellowship
then the concert will begin
Offer a prayer over the food.
Step 9. Introduction
Be prepared to introduce the Bostocks and share briefly about who they are (how you met them) and what they do.
