2020 is a movement in the Episcopal Church toward embracing fully the stated mission of the church: "to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ" (BCP p.855) and toward accepting the Great Commission: "Go therefore and make all nations my disciples" (Mt. 28:19). The goal that General Convention adopted in July 2000 that would hold the Church accountable to the movement is that by 2020 the Episcopal Church will have restored and discipled twice as many people as we can claim today.

This site contains the official actions and documents of the movement. The site will report on the Presiding Bishop's staff's efforts to support and encourage the movement. Much of the 2020 movement is in the hands of others: dioceses who will start new congregations, dioceses who will partner with their existing congregations to become more healthy and vital, congregations that will direct their ministries outward in a unified way, and individuals (the basic missional unit) praying, giving, and reaching out to those around them with the life giving Gospel. Expect to see the collection of data and progress reports related to the goals of 2020.
