I am about to redesign a 6-page long survey form for our church, and this is just about the beginning.
About a month ago, our senior pastor unexpectedly passed away, and this put in motion a series of events that still has me moving. Our church is planning an administrative session on Sunday to decide on the installation of a Pastoral Council to oversee matters of our church while a pastoral search is conducted. I had to prepare a lot of materials for that session.
Furthermore, a general consultation is planned for Sept. 9. In that occassion, a number of forms will be used to survey what the Church is thinking on several issues. I designed the form through several iterations and I am still incorporating changes to it. Additionally, I am retyping the Articles of Incorporation of our Church from some illegible notarized copy, and I have to be as accurate and exacting as humanly possible.
In sum: boring, tedious, repetitive, but important, work. I’ll be glad when it is over.
