Synod 2023 convened June 9-15 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to address matters within the Agenda for Synod 2023, and the Agenda Supplement. The Acts of Synod 2023 will be posted later this summer.
During Synod 2023, delegates and advisers initially met in advisory committees. Each advisory committee processed an assigned portion of the agenda and prepared reports that were made available to the delegates and posted publicly on this webpage. Synod 2023 deliberated each advisory committee report in plenary sessions throughout the week, and voted on the recommendations contained in each report.
**NOTE: Advisory Committee reports are made available in the original version presented to synod. In its deliberations, synod may make amendments to recommendations and those amendments will not be reflected in the posted reports. The final wording of recommendations, as well as the decision made on each recommendation, will be recorded in the Acts of Synod 2023, or may be noted by watching the webcast recordings of each session. The Acts of Synod serve as the official record of synod deliberations.
