Congregations – Capital Campaigns
St. John’s Episcopal Church, Grand Haven, MI
"Our Capital Campaign Committee was very energetic and had a strong sense of purpose. However, we lacked a precise understanding of how to go about our work. Linda guided us through the process and gave us the knowledge and skills we needed to be successful. The plan we created with her made all the difference in achieving our goal." - John D. Harberts, Capital Campaign Co-chairperson, St. John's Episcopal Church, Grand Haven
St. John’s Episcopal Church, Canandaigua, NY
"Our parish had the good fortune to work with Linda Buskirk as a capital campaign consultant. She was the perfect match for us - calm, professional, completely supportive, and always available to us. She aided us, without hovering, and because of her direction and insights, we topped our goal in a very short time. We still maintain contact with her as a friend of the parish." – Rev. David Hefling, Rector
Social Profit Strategic Planning
“TWF was able to solidify our mission, form a vision statement and develop strategies and action steps to complete our strategic plan thanks in large part to the knowledge, guidance and passion of Linda. I would highly recommend her to other organizations looking for strategic planning facilitation. – Natalie Fierek, President (2013), Tippecanoe Watershed Foundation.
Church Strategic Visioning/Planning
“Linda’s listening and guidance helped us to hear ourselves in new ways. As we named and worked with the gifts and passions of the congregation we crafted a vision statement that is still providing energy and direction five years later. We are grateful for her expertise that she exercised with genuine curiosity and encouragement for who God was calling us to be.” - Brenda Hostetler Meyer, Co-pastor, Benton Mennonite Church, Benton, Indiana
