About the HMB
The Home Mission Board (HMB) is a ministry of the Synod of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America (RPCNA).
Its main purpose is to advance the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ, specifically through strengthening and expanding the Reformed Presbyterian Church in North America in both its organization and its evangelical witness and teaching.
What is the 2020 Vision?
The 2020 Vision is a goal adopted by the 2005 Synod which seeks to strengthen home missions by making evangelism and church planting a renewed priority for the church. The 2020 Vision hopes to see the RPCNAgrow to 100 congregations and mission churches by the year 2020. When adopted in 2005, there were 78 churches and 6 mission churches for a total of 83. We rejoice in 2016 that we have reached the goal of 100! For more information check out our Planting section.
