The conference clerk's work is a membership ministry, created to provide a network of connections between people, pastors, and churches.
In the office of the conference clerk, statistical and membership records are updated and maintained for our 150+ churches, companies, and groups within the Southern California Conference. We have annual and as-needed personal training for local church clerks to prepare them to work as effectively as possible and maintain overall statistical data/membership information for all the churches and companies.
The local church clerk has one of the most important church offices, upon which the proper administration and efficient functioning of the church depends. They are a member of the local church board and should be in regular contact with the local pastor to help them with records, statistics, and reports, and to accurately record families, baptisms, and profession of faith decisions.
