The Vision 2020 Team was formed by General Synod 2018, tasked with exploring future scenarios for the RCA in light of significant divisions.
The team initially looked into three future scenarios for the RCA: staying together, radical restructure, and grace-filled separation. After thousands of hours of research, discernment, and feedback, they arrived at a combination of the three.
This report was scheduled to be considered at General Synod 2020, which was postponed due to COVID-19. A special session of General Synod was set for the fall, but that has also been called off because of the pandemic. Instead, the team’s final report will come to General Synod in June 2021 for consideration.
General secretary Eddy Aleman has urged people throughout the RCA to pray over the coming year.
Regional gatherings will provide space to discuss the Vision 2020 report. These gatherings will be held from October to May, organized and led by Vision 2020 Team members, General Synod officers, and the RCA’s Executive Leadership Team. Depending on pandemic conditions, these events may be held in person with an online option, or exclusively online.
