What is the Annual Church Profile?
Every year the Southern Baptist Convention goes through a data collection process of all its churches. Your ACP is a report of vital information specifically about your church for a 12-month period. Think of it like an annual medical health check up – for your church.
How does my church complete their ACP?
An email has been sent to the ACP contact we have on file for your church. If you have not received an email containing login/password information, please contact Anna Richardson (firstname.lastname@example.org) immediately to get instructions for filling out these surveys.
Why is this important?
Combined over several years, these surveys give a historical snap shot of your church. Pastoral candidates request this type of information when they are considering new church positions. The GBA uses this information when analyzing revitalization and church planting efforts. The SCBC uses this information when allocating resources. Without current data from your church, our information is incomplete and inaccurate.
ATTENTION: Due to the interruption of church services as a result of COVID-19, please only count the times your congregation met IN PERSON when calculating your church’s Average Weekly Worship Attendance and Average Sunday School/Small Group Attendance. Please DO NOT include online attendance when calculating your church’s averages.
Do not hesitate to call our office at (864) 242-4330 if you need any assistance. Let’s work together to make this ACP season a success!
