Annual Pastor’s Year-end Reports
This year, as every year, each pastor of a Church of the Nazarene on the Oregon Pacific District will be submitting a series of annual reports to the District Assembly. This site is designed to help you to do this as quickly and painlessly as possible. The reports and other documents that are required are all listed below- click on the + sign to see more. If you have the capability, please use the online forms, otherwise, scan the linked documents under each +, once completed, and email them to email@example.com or mail them by April 11th to Oregon Pacific District Office, 2780 Market St. NE, Salem, OR 97301.
The due date for the completion of the Annual Pastor’s Report and all of the other reports and documents is April 11th. This will allow churches 17 days from the last Sunday of March (the 25th) to complete their gathering of statistics and financial records. Some portions of the Annual Pastor’s Report, as well as some of the other reports and documents, can be completed before the end of the church year; please consider doing so to minimize your work later.
The online portion of the Annual Pastor’s Report must be completed by April 11th.
All pastors (and/or their designee) will log-in to the ANNUAL PASTOR’S REPORT (APR) by using their Nazarene Account. If you are having trouble with your Nazarene Account, please call the District Office (trouble would include not having a Nazarene Account or not being assigned to the APR application; if you can remember your Nazarene Account email address but not the password, you can click on the link for “I forgot my password” and the site will run you through a process of resetting the password).
New pastors to the district since last year’s report will either receive an invitation to sign up for a Nazarene Account/activate their Nazarene Account or have had their Nazarene account assigned to the APR application. The pastor will use this Nazarene Account to log-in at the APR site linked above.
Pastors should not share their login information with any other person as doing so makes potentially personal information available.
One additional person per church may receive a Nazarene Account and log-in to the site; please contact your pastor who will notify the district office if she/he would like to authorize an additional person to log-in to the church’s APR report. If you are a pastor and have not received your invitation to sign up for a Nazarene Account, please contact Bud or Steve at 503-581-3950 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although the district office does not have access to the log-in information for others’ Nazarene Accounts, they can provide the email address that is connected with the Nazarene Accounts that are assigned to the APR site. You can then use the email address to use the log-in help provided on the APR log-in page.
Print this worksheet to hand to helpers and department heads to provide their information for the report as well as to prepare for filling in the online report. Look for context-sensitive help for most items on the APR when working on the online report; find the help by clicking on the item.
If you have any questions regarding any of the information on this page or the Annual Pastors Report, please call 503-581-3950.
This year’s written report is once again different from last year. This year your written report to the District Assembly will only be available as an online submission.
The pastor is asked to answer 2 questions related to the church’s activity and its relationship to the Global and District Church of the Nazarene’s mission. Those questions and the written report form will be available soon.
- In light of our upcoming 75th anniversary as the Oregon Pacific District,
please share a couple of inspirational paragraphs of how your church was started/planted.
- Answer one of these two questions:
- How did your church “make its mark” this past year?
- How does your church project “making its mark” this coming year
When ready please click the link below to fill out your written report. ( a new window will open)
If you complete the online version of the Certificate of Election there is no need to complete the Supplemental Delegate Form listed below.
(includes supplemental delegate form)
(use the online form if possible)
Please read the Certificate of Election carefully. Use chart 1 when figuring the number of delegates your church is entitled to send to District Assembly. Be sure to fill it out accurately with information about your newly elected department heads and District Assembly delegates. Please note that department heads are listed as ex-officio delegates of the District Assembly and serve as delegates in addition to the elected delegates from your congregation.
If you completed the online version of the Certificate of Election there is no need to complete the Supplemental Delegate Form.
Use this form for listing delegates not shown on the Certificate of Election (Assigned elders [senior pastors and elders serving as staff members], deacons serving as staff members, licensed ministers serving as staff members and all retired assigned ministers are included in this group). To determine if a retired elder in your congregation is a delegate, check the Roll of Elders in the District Journal (page 36). All retired elders with the role code RA are members of the district assembly.
