Special Council on Human Sexuality

In April, a special council of 74 RCA members will gather in Chicago. Their mandate is to seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit to discern “a constitutional pathway forward for the Reformed Church in America to address the questions of human sexuality as it relates to ordination and marriage."

21 Days of Prayer and Fasting

Together, the Reformed Church in America is entering into a time of wisdom, discernment, and decision-making as we seek the leading of God for us as a church. Join others in prayerful preparation for this special council with 21 days of prayer and fasting beginning March 29. Each day you will receive a devotional written by an RCA leader delivered to your email box that will help focus your prayer time as we seek God’s leading together.

Continuous prayer during the event:

Our goal is to have continuous prayer coverage during the special council meeting April 15-18. Sign up for a one-hour time slot. 

Special Council: What to Expect

A smaller council, called the Group of Five, is preparing for and will facilitate the special council. It will also inform the church of the results.
