Mission Support

This committee coordinates support of Illinois Conference mission projects, including 2-3 site visits, and recommends budget allocations to the Executive Committee to be approved by the Conference Council.

On behalf of the Illinois Conference, we, the Mission Support Committee, accept and evaluate applications for Mission Grants to churches and organizations engaged in Ministries of Empowerment and Service to the marginalized members of our community.

$30,000 of Our Church’s Wider Mission resources were allocated in 2019.
