The General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) offers general statistical information about the church, formerly contained in the printed General Minutes, in a free, easy-to-use online directory and statistics website at www.umdata.org.
Assembled using data from EZRA, the United Methodist Data Access page (www.umdata.org) allows you to search for information regarding churches, pastors, conferences, and other entities in a quick and simple to use interface. While EZRA is the system used to gather and compile statistical information and general church data from each conference, the UM Data Access website is the vehicle The United Methodist Church is using to deliver that data to the public.
Designed to be user friendly [and because the information is cross-referenced], you will discover that you can find the information you need in a multitude of ways. Play with it to find the way that works best for you.
