The Vision 2020 Team offered a preliminary summary of the feedback they received from delegates.

Sundays at General Synod are quieter days. Delegates spent much of today enjoying Sabbath rest: worshiping with fellow believers at local churches, visiting with family and friends, and simply sleeping.

They reconvened in DeVos Fieldhouse in the evening to hear from the Vision 2020 Team as it reported back its learnings from the feedback groups. These groups have met three times, each time discussing one of the three scenarios for the future of the RCA: staying the same, radical reorganization, and grace-filled separation. The team’s presentation included identifying the main themes that came up in the groups, explaining next steps for both the team and the delegates, and spending time in discussion and prayer.

If you have any feedback you would like to give the Vision 2020 Team, email
