Home | News | TNUMC Finance | 2016 Year-End Reports One of Best in Eight Years

The 2016 year-end remittance reports for the Tennessee Conference were one of the best collection rates in at least eight years for the Tennessee Conference, at almost 90% paid. The 2016 apportioned budget was nearly even with the amount apportioned in 2015. Over 400 of the 585 churches (71%) paid 100% or more. Tennessee Conference paid 100% of its General and Jurisdictional Apportionments for the fifth consecutive year.

By district, Pulaski and Murfreesboro had the highest collection percentages, barely edging past Clarksville, Columbia, and Cumberland. Nashville District had their highest collection percentage in years, and all seven districts were strong.

As of the end of September 2016, only 29 churches, or 5%, remitted 50% of the total conference remittances. In contrast, 494 churches remitted the other 50%.
