Please find the “STATISTICAL REPORTING” on the Conference Website by going to this link:          https://www.wvumc.org/stats/

Thank you for making preparations to complete the 2018 Statistical Report for your church! 

Below are General Instructions which I encourage you to read over before beginning your worksheets. The worksheets themselves do have line by line guidelines as well.  Please note that a packet of pre-printed Tables I – III, General Guidelines, and Yellow Worksheets  will be sent to each pastor on December 10th.

As stated in the instructions, there are three ways to submit your report which is due by Thursday, January 31st.

  1. Mail – Be sure to allow time for delivery.  It would be best to use guaranteed delivery with a signature so that the forms can be tracked in the event that we do not receive them in this office. KEEP A COPY FOR YOUR RECORDS!

  Mail to: Conference Statistician    P.O.Box 2313  Charleston  WV 25328

  1. Fax – 1-304-344-9584 – Please keep in mind —  as we get close to the deadline our fax will be busy.  Please do your report as early in January as possible.  You can contact me, Myra Bess, at 1-800-788-3746, Ext 38 to confirm that our office received the fax.
  1. Use Ezra – It is software online through the General Church. Follow the instructions shown below.  Remember the passwords for each church are re-set to the word “PASSWORD”. Once you login in, you can change it.

Regardless of the method used of the three ways to submit, please check the list on this web site beginning Monday, January the 28th to make sure you are NOT on the list of missing reports.  This list will be updated daily.

I can be contacted at 1-800-788-3746, Extension 38, or myrabess@aol.com. If you receive my voice mail, please know that I WILL return your call providing you leave me your phone number and a brief message. I want to do all that I can to make this process as streamlined as possible.

Thank You. –Myra Bess, Controller
