Ministry Diary is an application designed for Jehovah’s Witnesses to organise their ministry. It allows users to set reminders, note call details and maintain accurate records of activity for their field service reports. Never forget an appointment again… * Easily schedule reminders of appointments you have made for Bible Studies or Return Visits. * Add alerts to your reminders to be displayed in Notification Center. * View a list of your reminders in order of date and time. Keep a track of your calls… * Note contact details for your calls including address, phone numbers and email. * View your call’s contact details, reminders and entire visit history (including placements and video showings) on one page. * Adding Placements and Video Showings is easy! Ministry Diary will automatically remember the publication names you have entered previously and allows you to select these from a simple drop down list. * Placements, Video Showings, Return Visits and Bible Studies added inside the call will automatically update your field service report for that month. * Easily phone, text or email your call directly from the application and view their address in Apple Maps. * Quickly sort your calls by name, city or date last visited; or manually sort by priority flag. Alternatively, view your calls on a map in relation to your current location. * Quickly share your calls with others via email. View your Field Service Report… * View your field service reports formatted to match the new S-4 report slip. * Within each report, you can enter and view activity for that month including Hours (field service or credit), Visits, Placements and Video Showings. Any visits added through the Calls section will also be displayed for you to review. * Manually update your total number of Placements, Video Showings, Return Visits or Bible Studies quickly and easily. * Ministry Diary gives you the option to automatically carry forward part hours to the following month. * Email or text your field service report to your group overseer from within the application.

    The app itself as mentioned in previous comments has so much potential. I had issues modifying a note and so I decided I would just delete and start a new one but wasn’t able to even delete it. Hope there’s bug fixes soon.
  • Beautiful app!

    I really like the interface and overall aesthetic of the ministry diary. I also find the features to be intuitive as far as what's offered. I only wish that it has a calendar and a way to view my statistics throughout the year so that I can keep an eye on my monthly averages. Besides that I love it!
  • Great app

    Good app, Is simpler than some others 👍. The Goals section is nice but would even better if you could plan your schedule in detail for the year. I, too do long for the robust features Ministry assistant 😌 in an apple equivalent, this one may be well on its way! Thanks friends for your hard work.
  • Great Improvement !!!

    This app has been greatly improved with the latest update. I appreciate this app for one reason and one reason only. It puts the emphasis on return visits. It does a nice job of keeping track and providing reminders on upcoming calls. I have tried all the other apps on the Apple store and it seemed that none could compare to Ministry assistant on the android platform. In fact, the lack of a good ministry app almost made me go purchase an android device so I could get ministry assistant back. But, this app shows lots of promise and I hope that it continues to improve. While it is not perfect and there are a few features I would like to see added this may still end up being the best on the Apple Store at the moment. The only reason why I did not give it five stars is that it lacks a timer, automatic back up and the ability to keep track of my not at homes in the territory.

    Like very much. Helpful in service. Suggested to many.
  • Excellent Update

    By jyeldell
    This update to the interface was great. One of the only things that kept me on MyTime was the tab navigation and the ability to add placements without connecting to an activity. The only thing I wish for in this app is iCloud backup support. Other than that it is very good! Thanks!
  • Nice, colorful App...

    By Teryl Hollins
    Love the easy interface, navigation and the mapping feature for calls. Pioneers in our Cong are using this too! Thx for a great app!!
  • Nice colors

    By Kaiken212
    I like the colors and ease of use of the app. I would agree that with a few updates it would be great. Service timer, next visit section for each return, notes preview on the call listing. Thanks
  • Has the potential :)

    I like the app :) It's a good app but it's not quite there yet... It has the potential though. Some suggestions to add to the app would be... - Service Timer - Manual adding of placements/video showings - Able to add a contact photo for the calls? - Have an in-app map without having to redirect to a different map app when locating a call - Have different colored map pin colors indicating when the last time you've visited a call - Instead of the address shown beneath the call name, have details of last visit shown - Possibly have "Territories" somewhere so we could note down addresses to come back to - Maybeee add "JW" somewhere on app logo? Maybe in white calligraphy? These are just some suggestions for the app :) But for now, this will only be my backup app. Keep up the good work :)
