Every church and mission is asked to complete a statistical survey once a year called the Annual Church Profile (ACP). This survey is where items like baptisms and church membership are collected. Many churches also use this opportunity to update information on church leadership.
The ACP gives real, clear information that helps the local pastor to make data-informed decisions about programming, staffing, and budgeting that better reflects where they want to go.
It also enables BCM/D to better serve our churches, and it helps entities of the Southern Baptist Convention fund church resources in the most effective way.
