I normally do a 55 minute slide show (actually it's a PowerPoint show, which requires a LCD projector), but I'm used to speaking without any slides where the equipment is lacking. In those cases I often bring some very large prints or charts, and sometimes I've prepared a well-illustrated handout that helps people follow along when I speak of Greek Revival or pediments or the Shingle style of architecture popular among late-nineteenth century upscale congregations.
I charge a $100 honorarium, basically to cover the many incidental costs of preparing a slideshow, travel and so on.

You may know the significance of the Basking Ridge Presbyterian Church, the Mount Bethel Meeting House or the Reformed Church of Neshanic, but what about the other historic churches in the area? Frank Greenagel will present the facts and the photographs of the many historic churches of Somerset County at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 26 at the Van Horne House in Bridgewater. He is the author of "Historic Churches of Somerset County, New Jersey," which shows 59 churches built in the county before 1900 are still standing. Greenagel explains their beginnings, identifies their architects and compares them with other historic churches throughout New Jersey.
The author has completed six books on the religious architecture of New Jersey and is currently working on two more, one on Monmouth County churches and one on Mercer County churches. His goal is to do a volume for each of New Jersey's 21 counties with a complete inventory of the state's religious structures from the 18th and 19th centuries
