Church clerks are the record keepers of the organization.
Each church has a clerk who manages membership data. This includes your name, date of birth, gender, marital status, mailing and/or physical address, phone number, and email.
Your membership profile is securely stored within a database called eAdventist.net. The database can only be accessed by authorized clerks, pastors, and church leaders.
General organization information, such as church/school name and contact information, is available through public access via Find a Church or Find a School.
How Your Information is Used
- For member visitation and communication from the church
- To differentiate between people with the same or similar names when transferring membership from one church to another
- To determine the percent of different age groups and genders in individual churches, our conference, our division and the world church.
- To mail Adventist publications to subscribers: the Gleaner, Adventist World & Adventist Journey, promotional mailings from Adventist Book Center and Adventist World Radio, and conference mailers (camp meeting, Christmas, and special events).
- To mail or email information to people holding specific church offices.
