Welcome to the 2022 Table Preparation Process!

This process is to collect your 2021 data.

We at the Conference will complete the following lines in Table II & III:

  • 29. Apportionments paid
  • 30. General Advance Specials
  • 31. World Service Specials
  • 32. Annual Conference Advance Special

  • 50b. Grand total of Church Expenses
  • 54a. Equitable Compensation

The local church will not need to complete these lines. Some of the lines above may be hidden on the GCFA form and input screens, so you may not see some of them.

Log on instructions, username, password and document overview

All churches have two usernames. The usernames are 341 then your local church number followed by either "p" (pastor) or "o" (office). That will be nine digits in total. For example, if your NY Church number is 99999 and you are the pastor, your username will be 34199999p. You can find your local church number on a church statement, benefits invoice or by clicking here for a list.

The initial password for both the pastor and the office is: NYAC341. NYAC must be capital letters with no space.

It is essential that you hit the save button every 60 minutes or more often. If you do not save your data for 60 minutes the system will "time out" or automatically log you off. If this occurs, will have lost all unsaved data. When the system times out, you will have to log back in and resubmit any data that wasn't previously saved. Remember, there is no limit on how often or how many times you can save your tables.
