Members’ Online Office

Christ Holy Sanctified Church is committed to transparency with regards to contributions, donations, and other fees made to the organization and we are pleased to announce that another phase of the Church Management and Resource System (CMRS) is complete.
 
Effective March 12, 2017, clergy will now have the ability to track their individual contributions (such as offerings, official honorariums), donations (such as “Get on the Wall”), and their Credential Fee payments and pledges.  A special URL has been sent to all clergy on file to view and update “individual” demographic information.  Having the ability view your individual contributions will enable us to correct (“fix it”) any discrepancies or contributions that may have been mis-posted.
 
In addition, beginning 2017, reports will be made available during the Leadership Conference and online for all clergy that will list contributions to specific funds such as Credential Fee payments and giving toward the Official Honorarium made by all CHSC clergy. 
What information will I update
While there are many fields in the CMRS system, you will only have to update your street address, city, state, zip, e-mail address(s), and phone number. We do no not request nor store social security, driver’s license numbers or credit card information in the Members Online Office.    
Why is the information necessary?
As with most mainline church organizations, we need to know the status of “all” its churches and clergy in order we maintain the highest level of accounting and servicing of all clergy.  Church information is required for the IRS for Group “umbrella” exemptions – Integrity. Also, we want to ensure that you are informed (via e-mail) regarding changes and announcements as quickly and as accurately as feasible.  
Why will certain fund accounts be made available?
In researching the records (as far back as 1952), payments/fees made by the clergy and deacons to specific funds in support of the organization were published annually for distribution.  With today’s technology, you can now view your individual information online and print your own statements and other transaction reports. 
What if I do not see payments, fees, or offerings that I made?
As with any reporting of data or transition, all funds given to the organization’s bank and those funds were posted to the General Ledger system, it is quite possible that detail information was not accounted for.  It is during the reconciliation of the General Ledger and CMRS that we are able to account for detail transactions given individuals – provided the given was placed in an envelope or made electronically.
 
If you are certain that you made a payment for credential fees or the official honorarium, please send a copy of the check (check number) or the the credit card transaction to Bishop-designate Robert Burrell at rburrell@chschurch.org or Bishop-elect Stanley Kerr at skerr@chschurch.org and the information will be recorded promptly.
