Credential/Church Reports

Instructions for Annual Reports

Every credential holder must file an annual report. Please follow these instructions carefully to complete your required report(s).

THE 2019/2020 REPORTS HAVE BEEN REVAMPED! You must still complete them online but now there are only two - one for ALL ministers and one for local churches.

Click on the link for the desired report below and complete. We cannot save a partially completed report. Therefore, each report must be finished once you start it. If you must exit your web browser, you will need to start the report over. Once submitted, your 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 input your email address in the proper box in the form.

For ALL EMC Ministers (Elders, Admitted on Trial, Local Preachers, and Deacons/Deaconesses)

Minister's Report: Complete and submit. No report is required for Superannuated or Supernumerary ministers, however, we would appreciate hearing from you of any ministerial service, activities or functions.

For Pastors in Charge of EMC Congregations

Local Church Report: Have a copy of the church’s statistical report from last year 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).

For ALL Credential holders

Code of Ethics: Upon becoming a credential holder, each minister is required to sign a Ministerial Code of Ethics. Per EMC Book of Discipline ¶852, each subsequent General Conference year, all credential holders are required to sign a reaffirmation of the Ministerial Code of Ethics. If you haven't already done so, please read and sign the 2018-2022 reaffirmation.

If you do not have the ability to complete your required report online, please contact Rev. Coulston at EMC HQ to receive a paper copy to mail or fax in. The deadline for submission of all reports is January 31st.
