For Instance
No point in putting pictures of Street Preaching.  Street Preachers are looking for lost people.  Your recent convert is no longer lost and is looking for help, comfort, guidance, etc.  Pictures of Street Preaching may even scare off prospects who think they would be required to do this.

Do not use stoic poses
* loosen up
* use fun pictures
* display excitement
* depict project involvement

Top

Do not use pictures which seem
* overly pious
* difficult situations for Prospects to attain to

An example of the latter
A picture of members knocking on doors.  Soul Winners are looking for lost people.  Your recent convert is looking for someone to minister to their needs or children or some way to get through the confusion of life. Pictures of Soul Winners knocking on doors might scare off prospects who think they would be required to do this.

Use of Album
Size up Prospect
Where would prospects fit in the Church Program?
* Show them those pictures which apply
* Introduce them to people in the Booth involved in those programs
* Ask to send people from those programs to introduce them to their ministry

The following statement can be used or tweaked to fit different ministries.

"You would like to see more about the 'Ladies Bible Study', wouldn't you?"
"Itís a way to learn about the Bible at a slow pace, when you may think you do no know as much as others."
