Holland Deacon’s Conference

Overarching Goals

Engaging Community: HDC will encourage each diaconate and church to join in God’s transforming work in their communities.

Equipping Deacons: HDC will serve as a link to available teaching, training, encouragement and partnerships for deacons and diaconal ministries from congregations and communities within Classis Holland.

Doing Justice: HDC will equip and encourage deacons and congregations to act on justice issues affecting vulnerable, poor and suffering people in their communities.

Our Core Values

Partnership – We are committed to encouraging diaconates, local congregations and community partners to work together combining resources and efforts to more effectively address and support shared diaconal concerns and projects (Acts 4: 32-35).

Justice – God calls us to restore and reconcile broken relationships (2 Corinthians 5:16-19) through the pursuit of justice (Micah 6:8).

Compassion – We are motivated by and committed to demonstrating Christ’s compassion for the vulnerable, poor and suffering in our communities and world (1 John 3:16-19).
