CRC's Our Journey 2020

There’s something about a journey that’s exciting and invigorating. A promise of new horizons; new possibilities; new challenges. We in the Christian Reformed Church are on such a journey. It’s called Our Journey 2020. CRC members and leaders across Canada and the United States identified the challenges their churches are facing. These framed the goals, or “desired futures.” The goals will enable us to assist each other in mapping out our unique routes, while drawing upon shared resources and expertise. But how to get there — and where to go first— will be different for each congregation. 

1. Church and Community

Our congregations will flow like streams into their communities. We will meet our neighbors at community events and gathering places, listening to each other, learning from each other, and serving each other. By our presence we will become channels for the love of Christ and the Holy Spirit’s life-giving transformation. 

2. Discipleship

Our churches will be vibrant communities, radiating grace. As we preach, teach, and live out the gospel within and beyond our walls, we nurture people of all generations as they grow into the likeness of Christ Jesus.

3. Leadership

Our churches and ministries will grow new leaders of many kinds. At all levels—local, regional, denominational—we discover the talents, skills, and strengths in our ordained and lay people. We cultivate those gifts through education, hands-on ministry opportunities, and guidance from mature leaders in order to raise new leaders who have deep roots and yield abundant fruit.

4. Identity

We will grasp—and be grasped by—a richly Reformed world and life view so that we are able and eager to express what it means to belong to God’s diverse and unified family. Transformed by that story, we will learn to tell it so compellingly that people from many cultures and experiences are drawn to see and know themselves as God’s beloved ones, entrusted to bring the good news to others.

5. Collaboration

Our churches and ministries will work hand in hand with each other, and with partners in our own communities and around the world, to faithfully fulfill Jesus’ command to make disciples of all people.
