Columbia District "End of Year" Reports
There are several reports due from the local church and/or clergy persons in January, which we collectively call the "year end" reports because they reflect back on the past year or provide information necessary as we look toward the new year.
These are all due by January 31, 2022.
See the table below for the list of reports and who is responsible for each.
This year you have the option of completing the “Clergy Continuing Education Report” online through the People Portal (also found at the "People Portal" link at the bottom right of this page) and the “Membership Report” and “Parsonage Report” online through the Church Dashboard (log in at the "Church Dashboard" link at the bottom right of this page.) We would prefer that you complete the forms in this way. Contact Brandon if you have questions about logging in – firstname.lastname@example.org.
But the forms are also available as either Word or PDF files by clicking here or you can access the PDF forms in the table below (these forms are fillable and should be downloaded and saved to your computer before completing). All forms may be submitted electronically.
The Statistical Reports are completed online at ezra.gcfa.org Information about those was sent out 12/21/2021 from the Conference Treasurer. See that information by clicking here. User Names and Passwords are reset each year. Your Username is the six digit GCFA # for your church followed by p for pastor or o for other (Example 910110p and 910110o) The Password is password. If you don't know your GCFA#, contact Brandon. The first time you log-in you will be asked for your name, contact information and will have a chance to change your password. but you’ll want to collect the instructions and forms first which you will find at www.umoi.org/statistics.
