Nature of the Church Committee Seeks Responses


The General Assembly Special Committee on the Nature of the Church in the 21st Century (how about we call it GASCNC21C for short?) has issued five questions to guide Presbyterians as we seek to "move faithfully into the future." Cynthia Holder Reich has made these questions available on and has asked for emailed submissions for publication on that site. The questions are as follows:

  1. What is your vision for the church in the 21st century?
  2. What characteristics will draw the great diversity (racial ethnic, age, gender, etc.) of our country into our community of faith in the 21st century?
  3. What do you think are the highest priorities and challenges for the church in the 21st century?
  4. What unique voice do we, as Presbyterians in the Reformed tradition, bring regarding vital ministry in churches and in society?
  5. How do we move the church past division in theology, evangelism and mission to work toward unity in Christ?
Submissions can be emailed to []
