The People Portal
The new People Portal is a personalized portal where you, as a church or conference leader, can securely update and submit information to the conference office either for yourself, your leaders or your church. For leaders who require access to specific forms (i.e. charge conference or appointment forms, pastors compensation form, etc.), the People Portal will give you quick and easy access.
You might ask, "Where are the Charge Conference and Appointment forms? Access to both charge and appointment forms are now linked to select individuals of your church leadership team. We have found throughout the previous reporting years, key leaders have been, in a variety of ways, mainly responsible for the completion and submission of the charge forms.
This leadership team includes people with the following leadership roles or status:
- Lay Pastor
- Lay Leader
- SPRC Chair (in the local church)
- Trustees President (in the local church)
- Administrative Board/Council Chair (in the local church)
- and in some instances, church secretaries or administrators
If you do not hold a position as mentioned above but have a responsibility to complete a portion(s) of the charge forms, you will want to get ahold of one of your leaders--perhaps start with your pastor -- to start the process of gaining access.
Accessing the People Portal
All Clergy and SPRC Chairs may use their username and password from the previous year. All other church leaders in roles mentioned above, may need to request a username and password. If you need to create or have forgotten your username or password, you may click on the "Sign up and login help" link or send an email to Renee Teftt, Database Coordinator, at email@example.com.
Accessing the Church Portal
Select leaders in leadership roles mentioned above have special access to the Church Dashboard, they too will need to sign in through the People Portal.
