Michigan Statistician’s Corner
Detroit and West Michigan Conferences

Dedicated to serving the local church, our goal is to assist and encourage you so that your church can spend less time searching for forms and filing paperwork and more time sharing the gospel of Christ.

Thank you to those churches submitting their 2017 Local Church Report in a timely manner.  The Detroit and West Michigan complete Local Church Reports will be submitted to Annual Conference and to the General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) by their deadlines of June 30, 2018 and will be printed in their separate Journals thereafter.

Please note that the line numbers of the Local Church Report are changed each quadrennium.  You may find a copy of the updated 2017 – 2020 line numbers at this link.  Church information emails and letters announcing the 2018 reports will be sent this fall.  If you know someone unable to connect with the internet to download their 2018 Worksheet and need snail mail paper copies, please help them contact Rev. Ron Iris or Rev. Tom Fox (contact information can be found below).  Local Church Reports will be printed in the Journal listed in the nine new Districts implemented in July 2018.

Pastors, as I’m sure you are aware, the final submission of the annual reports is ultimately your responsibility. We do encourage you to involve others in your congregation in the preparation of the information. Sharing the stories told by the statistics, and perhaps sharing comparisons with prior years, may yield some interesting insights. Please ensure that all involved have a copy of  documents on these pages and at ezra.gcfa.org to help them. May your many ministries be blessed with God’s presence and guidance!

Finally, please get in touch with us if you want a real person to talk to about the Local Church Report.  Thank you.

Rev. Ron Iris
