Coming Soon: Our Journey 2025
The CRCNA is about to embark on a new five-year journey. Our goal? To become congregations and communities that:
- Cultivate prayer and spiritual disciplines
- Listen to the voices of every generation
- Grow in diversity and unity
- Share and live the gospel

Stories on Our Journey
Church and Community
Desired Future 1: Churches Flowing into Their Communities
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.
Desired Future 2: Churches Nurturing Disciples
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.
Desired Future 3: Churches Cultivating Leaders
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, handson ministry opportunities, and guidance from mature leaders in order to raise new leaders who have deep roots and yield abundant fruit.
Desired Future 4: Churches Telling Our Story
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.
Desired Future 5: Churches Working in Partnership
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.
