Instructions for 2017 Reports
Every credential holder must file an annual report. Please follow these instructions carefully to complete your required report(s).
All of the 2017 reports are now completed online. Since we currently do not have the ability to save a partially filled in report, each report must be completed at one sitting.
Click on the link for the desired report below and complete. The submitted report will be automatically emailed to the General Secretary and your Conference Superintendent. If you want a copy of your report emailed to you, make sure you add your email address in the proper box on the form.
If you do not have the ability to complete your report online and want a paper copy to submit, please contact Rev. Coulston at EMC Headquarters.
For Pastors in Charge of EMC Congregations
Submit Forms M1946, M1000 & M1005
Form M1946: Have a copy of the church’s statistical report from last year and a 2016 summation of the 12 monthly Treasurer’s Reports (Form F900 page 14) ready for use in preparing this report.
The STATISTICAL Section reflects your personal compilation of ministry data for the year.
The FINANCIAL Section may be completed using the information from a compiled yearly treasurer’s report (F900).
Form M1000: This additional report is a record of your personal and church ministry for the year as well as your continuing education credits. It will be included as your personal report in the pre-conference materials and subsequent conference minutes. Concentrate on key accomplishments, plans for the New Year, and the ongoing denominational Missional Priorities.
Form M1005: This report is the Post-Annual Church Conference Report and includes boards and committee officers and staff information.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the size of this report (M1005), it is in two parts. When you complete Part 1 and hit “continue” it will email you that completed portion of the report and automatically take you to Part 2 to complete. You will receive an email of Part 2 upon its completion. Keep both emails for your records.
For All Other Elders, Admitted on Trial and Local Preachers
Form M1001: Complete and submit. For Superannuated or Supernumerary ministers, no report is required. However, we would appreciate hearing from you of any ministerial service, activities or functions.
For Deacons or Deaconesses
Form M1002: Complete and submit.
For All Credential Holders
If you include your email address in the report(s), you will receive a copy of it once completed. If you do not have the ability to complete your required report online, please contact Rev. Couslton at EMC HQ to receive a paper copy to mail or fax in. All reports are required by January 31st.
