The Program Committee of synod (officers of Synod 2019) reviewed the Agenda for Synod 2020 and supplementary materials included in the Minutes of the Special Meeting of the Council of Delegates 2020 to decide matters that could not wait until Synod 2021, indicated by shading within the publications.
The Council of Delegates of the CRCNA held a special meeting (virtually) in June to address the matters that could not wait until Synod 2021. Essential matters included things such as the approval of candidates for the office of minister of the Word and appointments to boards and committees. This special meeting of the COD did not replace synod—it is within the mandate of the COD and Church Order that the Council of Delegates of the CRCNA acts for synod in matters which cannot await action by the synod itself (cf. Church Order Art. 33-b).
