Preparing for the 2017 EZRA Reports

We are beginning to set up Ezra (ezra.gcfa.org) for 2017 statistics.  As a part of this process, all church passwords have been reset. The new password has been sent to all pastors. If you need assistance with logging in, send an email to Conference Treasurer, Beth Westbury bwestbury@umcsc.org.  This reset password does NOT change the login for charge conference reporting on the umcsc.org website, only for Ezra.

It is recommended that pastors and others with responsibility for collecting and/or entering data in the EZRA reports review the changes to the forms for the new quadrennium. Please go to http://www.umcsc.org/home/administrative-services/statistics-2/.

The input forms (tables) are currently locked while the Treasurer’s Office continues the set up process.  The forms will be unlocked in late December so you can begin to enter your 2017 data.  However, you can access your reports and data from past years now. The due date for 2017 statistics is February 28, 2018.

Please note that the default year has been changed to 2017.  If you need to see a prior year, you will need to change the year at the top of the screen (drop down box) after you login.
