Friday, February 14th, 2020 is the final day for submission of your 2019 statistical information!   Reports must be entered on-line by Midnight, or postmarked on that day to avoid the 10% penalty on your 2021 Apportionments. 

To log in to the GCFA Statistics system you will need to know your Six Digit GCFA church number. This number is the same as your Iowa Conference church number and was included in the mailing being sent to Pastors, Treasurers,  Finance Committee Chairs and Church Secretaries/Office Managers the first week of December.   If you do not have that letter you may contact Roland Minshall in the Treasurer's Office ( Roland.Minshall@iaumc.org or 515-974-8924).  Your church number can also be determined by looking at your remittance statements ( www.iaumc.org/remits  ). 

Note: The default passwords reset every year.  Also make sure that you are entering the username and password in all lowercase letters.  Please refer to the letter mailed to your Pastor/Treasurer/Finance Chair/Church Secretary-Admin Asst. for usernames to be used.

These forms are provided here for your use as WORKSHEETS ONLY.  We request that all information be entered directly in the the GCFA Statistics Entry System using the instructions above.
