- Prepare and present special studies as needed by BGCT-related committees and study groups
- Assist BGCT staff, associations, and other agencies in program planning and evaluation
- Prepare demographic studies for local churches and associations upon request
Annual Church Profile & Vital Signs Log
The Annual Church Profile (ACP) provides a way for your church to share its progress of ministry and growth so that associations, state conventions and Baptist agencies are better able to assist your congregation in all areas of church life. The Vital Signs Log can help you measure basic items of church participation on a weekly basis. Click below to learn more about these resources and download them for use in your church.
