Church Connectional Giving
The funding model for the Global Methodist Church can be viewed in paragraph 349 of the Transitional Book of Doctrines and Discipline. The General Church Connectional Funding rate is currently at 1% of adjusted gross revenue. The Allegheny West Connectional Funding rate is currently at 3%. Any church that chooses to pay its full year of Annual Conference Connectional Funding by March 15 will get a 5% discount for the year.

Create Your Church Profile Account
A Church Admin Account Can Update Church Information and Make Payments Online
Our new church and clergy profile database application is live. We request that all churches setup an account and update their church profile. Once you setup a Church Admin user account, you’ll be able to update address, leadership and financial information for your church. There is one Church Admin account permitted for each church. Please identify the person in your church who will be the person responsible for you church profile. That person should then “open” an account by following the link below. Once you’ve entered your login and password to request a Church Admin account, your request is sent to the Conference office. The Conference Admin will then approve your request for an account, and then you’ll be able to access your church profile and begin making updates (including making online payments for Connectional Giving).
It’s important that we also know what church you are connected with in order to approve your request for an account. Once you enter your login and password to request an account, please immediately use the second link to let us know which church (or churches) your new account is connected to. Once we know that we’ll be able to approve your new account.
Step Two: Once your account is approved and assigned to your church, you'll receive a notification that you now have a Church Admin or Clergy account. When you login and select your church or clergy profile. Church Admins will be able to enter Annual Connectional Giving calculations and make payments online. Watch video #2 below for instructions on using a church admin account. **if your church has already mailed a payment we will update your records manually to reflect your payments made.
Video # 3 provides instructions on using a clergy account. Remember, there is a separate user account for clergy EVEN IF a clergy member is also the person that will serve a church admin. The church admin account type is the only account that will have access to certain church information (e.g. finances).
