The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Yearbook and Directory is more than just numbers. It is, above all, a touchstone for our covenantal relationships across the expressions of the Church. General ministry reports, general assembly resolutions, regional and congregational information and more appear in these pages connecting us.
The yearbook is also a document of record. Not only does it show trends in membership and giving, but it also serves as the documentation for congregations’ 501(c3) nonprofit status with the Internal Revenue Service in the United States.
Between Jan. 4 and 14, church offices should receive a postcard with the congregation’s PIN number. The disciples.org/yearbook web page will have a link to the online reporting form, downloadable instructions, and other resources to help you through the reporting process. The deadline for submitting is March 15.
Please Note: This year there will be additional questions that may look unfamiliar. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is partnering with Faith Communities Today in their 2020 Census of religious communities. The data from these questions will be shared in aggregate form only to protect confidentiality.
