Denominational Rolls and Statistics

Per G-3.0104—“Each council shall elect a clerk who shall record the transactions of the council, keep its rolls of membership and attendance, maintain any required registers, preserve its records, and furnish extracts from them when required by another council of the church.”

The files maintained by the Office of the General Assembly are based on the responsibilities of the Stated Clerk of the General Assembly. The processes in place are to ensure the Stated Clerk of the General Assembly remains in compliance with the Book of Order and General Assembly mandates.

A few of the rolls maintained by the Stated Clerk include: ministers, churches, and clerks of session. The General Assembly also mandates the collection and publication of the statistics of churches as part of the Minutes of the General Assembly, Part II, Statistics.
