Preparation Documents for Local Church Tables I, II & III

Dear Pastor, Finance Committee Chair, Local Church Treasurer:

Welcome to the 2018 Table Preparation Process!

This process is to collect your 2017 data.

The GCFA reporting Tables I, II and III will be opened on Tuesday, December 12, 2017. Click here to go to the GCFA Web site ezra.gcfa.org. Important: The deadline for reporting is Wednesday midnight, January 31, 2018.

We at the Conference will complete the following lines in Table II: Lines 28 through 36F, 39, 40, 41b, 41c, 50a

We at the Conference will complete the following lines in Table III: Line 54a

The local church does NOT need to complete these lines.

 

Log on instructions, username, password and document overview

The tables are located at http://ezra.gcfa.org. All churches have two user names. The user names are 341 then your local church number followed by either "p" (pastor) or "o" (office). That will be nine digits 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 in the 2018 Apportionments document.

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

It’s very important 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.

 

District Statisticians

Each district has a statistician. The statistician has been trained in the use of the Tables and the instructions for completing them. Questions should be directed to your district statistician. The statistician will be able to view your Tables and change them. He/she will also be able to view or print reports of your status. The District Statisticians are:
