Church Statistics Information (Due January 31, 2013):
The "Book of Discipline" states that one of the administrative responsibilities of the pastor is "to give an account of their pastoral ministries to the charge and annual conference according to prescribed forms." Once the statistics are reported to the conference, they are compiled and checked for accuracy. Bishop Jones and the Cabinet use the statistical reports to assist in the clergy appointment process. The results assist local churches in identifying ministry areas that are extraordinarily successful and in determining the success of ministry and discipleship plans. The information is used by Annual Conferences to calculate local church apportioned funds and by the general church to apportion local conferences.
Our use of the GCFA statistical input system improves our accountability and measures our ministry work throughout the Kansas East Conference and in connection with the general church. Please direct questions about this process to your district office. God bless you in your ministries.
