You can help HDC obtain more responses to our survey by inviting/encouraging people you know from congregations/communities served by the Holland Deacons’ Conference of Classis Holland (i.e., Fennville, Hamilton, Holland, Noordeloos, Saugatuck, South Haven, St. Joseph, West Olive, and South Bend, IN.) to complete and submit our online survey¹. The link for regular members/attenders of churches (not only CRCs) is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HDCChurchMembers. The one for deacons, elders, pastors and other ministry staff is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HollandDeaconsConference. Below is an updated version of our original invitation:
The Holland Deacons’ Conference (HDC) wants to hear from you! We want to know what you know and think about the work of HDC. We also want and need your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions regarding what you think we should consider doing or doing more of as a deacons’ conference as we work with the deacons of the nearly 40 Christian Reformed congregations in several communities along the Lakeshore and extending as far south as South Bend, Indiana (Fennville, Hamilton, Holland, Noordeloos, Saugatuck, South Haven, St. Joseph, West Olive, and South Bend, IN). To that end we have developed–with donated services and assistance from Gartner Marketing–an online survey. It is a brief 10 question survey that can easily be completed in just a few minutes.
If you attend or are a member of a local congregation–it does not have to be CRC–in a community served by HDC and are not in a church leadership position (e.g., pastor, deacon, elder, etc.) please click on the following link to access and complete our survey: Church Member Survey
If you are in a leadership position (clergy or laity) with a local congregation, please click on the following link to our Church Leaders survey.
Thank you for helping HDC as we seek to improve our services and discern God’s leading.
Jack Kooyman, HDC Executive Director
