GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT ANNUAL REPORTING…

Often each Church’s Pastor, Secretary, Clerk and Treasurer partner together to complete the reporting process for your church.  We hope your Clerk Report Team will do their part to bring our Region to 100% participation this year.

By doing so, your church will…

  1. provide evidence of an on-going denominational relationship for legal purposes i.e. tax exemption, grant opportunities, etc.
  2. provide a church record outside your local church for historical purposes.
  3. help us plan to serve and communicate with your congregation more effectively.
  4. improve the reliability of the data for our wider American Baptist family. 

As we continue to make greater use of technology as we seek to be good stewards of God’s resources, it is helpful to have e-mail addresses for every pastor and church, as well as church website (URL) addresses.   Therefore, we encourage you to include email addresses along with other contact information to assist us with this effort.
