I find prep meetings very helpful for both the lecturer and sponsoring church. Conference calls generally work well. Freeconferencecall.com gives out free conference numbers, if you don’t have one. Skype works well too. Monday, Tuesday or Thursday nights generally fit my schedule, but please send me a potential date when you have one.
IF I CANNOT ATTEND YOUR PREP MEETING, HERE IS A 16-MINUTE VIDEO MESSAGE THAT YOU CAN SHARE WITH YOUR MEMBERS:
DOWNLOAD METAPHYSICAL PREPARATION MATERIALS:
Three wonderful articles to study as you prepare for hosting lectures:
Fulfilling the purpose of a Christian Science lecture by ROSE M. HENNIKER-HEATON (The Christian Science Journal, May 1981)
A Christian Science Lecture by PAUL STARK SEELEY (The Christian Science Sentinel, September 1918)
Faithful laborers for a Christian Science lecture by MARY DAVIES (The Christian Science Journal, March 1984)
For those hosting one of my lectures, here are some press materials that you might find helpful. Feel free to use your own creative inspiration—these are just examples. Email me if you have any questions or are looking for an unlisted piece of press material. You might also find helpful information on my Christian Science.com bio page.

NEEDS FOR THE LECTURE DAY:
-A microphone. I prefer a wireless lavalier to clip onto my shirt. Second choice is a wireless handheld mic. Third choice is a wireless headset.
-A small table for my books and a small bottle/glass of water.
-A white screen for my projector (Ideally 6’+ wide).
-I will bring my projector, but if a facility has one built-in, it’s best to use theirs. I will bring my laptop and remote.
-If we’re using my projector, an extension cord and power strip is usually needed. Also, an additional small table is often helpful.
Good morning! And thank you all for joining us today for an inspiring adventure into prayer and healing.
Our speaker, Nate Frederick, is a Christian Science practitioner who lives with his wife and daughter in Boothbay, Maine. Nate travels the world sharing insights into the universal power of God, and how this power can bring about good in our individual lives.
As a former media producer, Nate produced the award-winning “Daily Lift” podcast for The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, the headquarters of the Christian Science church. Nate loves music, being out in nature and baking cakes for his friends. But he would say that his greatest passion is to help people through prayer.
Please join me in welcoming Nate Frederick!
(Please do not make the introduction longer than this and do not share any healing examples from my practice unless they’re approved.)

Nate generally sends his expenses out before two to three weeks before the lecture. He prefers to receive two checks (one for fee and another for expenses) at the lecture or mailed to his home at:
