The Annual Church Profile is a quick and much needed system used throughout the Southern Baptist Convention to collect vital statistical and leadership information. Churches and associations are asked to compile data each year on membership numbers, baptisms, worship, Sunday school attendance, and other key areas of ministry. Information is power! The State Convention of Baptists in Ohio encourage you to complete your church’s Annual Church Profile as an act of “informational stewardship” similar to the stewardship you demonstrate through tithes, missions offerings, and support through the Cooperative Program.
• Information gathered can be used to help churches measure their ministry directions and effectiveness.
• Information collected can be archived and not lost as the result of a church fire, flood, or property damage.
• Assists our national SBC agencies in reporting accurate, important, and relevant information concerning church life.
• Determines the number of church messengers that can be duly and properly elected to participate and vote in state convention and national convention meetings.
