Monthly Statistics: Instructions

You may have heard Mark Twain’s famous quote about “lies and statistics,” but despite his low opinion of stats, they are a useful tool.

These numbers help us and the Nazarene Global Ministry Center measure the progress and effectiveness of our programs, determine trends in small groups and worship, track attendance through the changing times in our society and in different regions, and they help keep each level of the church accountable in fulfilling our responsibility to our congregations.

Stats are submitted to the district office after the last Sunday of each month, and are typically due by that Wednesday.  A reminder email containing the due date and your submission options is usually sent.

For help determining your numbers, reference the Church of the Nazarene Reporting Guidelines.
