The Financial Services Department fulfills GCFA’s Disciplinary responsibilities to hold in trust and distribute monies given by individual church members through their local churches for general Church benevolences and programs. These funds are transmitted to GCFA through the Annual Conferences and are distributed directly to the General Funds of The United Methodist Church as defined in the Book of Discipline.
The Financial Services Department also performs accounting and reporting functions for some general agencies as well as support of all United Methodist general agencies for employee health insurance benefits, insurance reporting, and management of employee flexible spending accounts.

We are committed to providing our stakeholders with quality services and support while adhering to our mandate to insure that funds given to the Church are used appropriately and efficiently.
In our commitment to transparency of reporting the use of funds provided for the connectional ministries of The United Methodist Church, and the responsibilities to the people who provide the funding for those ministries, GCFA is posting the general Church apportionments by conference (2019, 2020), and the audited 2017 financial statements of GCFA and other general Church agencies.
