Managing church data is hard work.

From multiple data collection system, intensive data checking and verification processes, to endless meetings, phone calls, and back and forth correspondence, the data created and manipulated throughout the United Methodist connection can be massively headache-inducing.

Ezra cuts down on the time spent processing and managing data.



Ezra is a robust, interactive, and cost-effective data solution that uses Web-based technology to keep all of your data current and available conference-wide in real time.

Ezra is built by people who share your mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Ezra provides conferences an entry and access portal for all official information including statistics, appointments, and clergy records, as well as, customizable data fields specific to each conference.
Ezra provides a simple, user-friendly interface with options that are easy to use, customizable, and designed specifically for the unique needs of our United Methodist Connection.

Ezra provides data in real time, as it is updated, and is distributed to all agencies. This data can also be found on the public facing site www.UMData.org, where it is updated automatically from Ezra.

Finally, Ezra's core modules are proved to annual conferences at no additional cost through their generous support of the General Administration Fund.



Your data is secure when housed on GCFA'S databases. Our servers reside onsite in a climate-controlled data room accessed by only a handful of qualified personnel. All information is backed up daily and replicated to our Disaster Recovery site. If our system goes down, your information is available immediately at our backup site.
