Each June, the RCA's General Synod—ministers and elders representing regions and classes—convenes for its regular session. During this time, the body makes decisions that affect the life and work of the entire denomination. The acts and proceedings from each year are recorded in the Minutes of General Synod, including reports and recommendations. The archive of the Minutes dates back to 1771 and runs through present day.
The Minutes of General Synod are available in the Portable Document Format (PDF). This format allows you to download and print any document while keeping all formatting features. To do so, you will need a copy of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
