Sample Event Script
I appreciate the opportunity to be here with you at this event. Thank you for coming!
I’m sure that you all would agree that the last few years have been challenging. This is why we wanted you to come. We believe your comments on some short films will be helpful to everyone. The films are only a few minutes each.
There are a couple of question I will be asking all of you at the end of each film vignette: The two questions are… What did you like best? Why
Near the end of our time we will pause and _____________ [name of testimony giver] from this area will take a few minutes to reflect on the messages and how it has affected his/her life. At the end, we would like to give you a summary to take home.
But for now, let’s watch the first vignette, ______________ [name of vignette version] and remember as you watch: What do you like best? Why
SHOW THE VIGNETTE

CONTINUE THE SAME PROCESS WITH THE OTHER VIGNETTES.
