Be a blessing
Illinois Conference administration expresses sincere sadness and heartfelt sympathy for those families affected by the tragic Oklahoma tornados. Our prayers are with those mourning and healing. Now we are reminded more clearly, “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed way” (Revelation 21:4, NIV).

Previously in Ron's ministry, he worked as teacher, adjunct professor of religion, youth pastor and associate ministerial director. His wife, Lori, will also be serving our conference as Associate Superintendent of Education, and conference Special Education Teacher. Ron and Lori will be starting work in Illinois by the first of July.
GO AND TELL ILLINOIS
Illinois Conference pastors and staff will launch GO AND TELL, a new evangelism initiative with the sole purpose of taking the Gospel to the mission field of Illinois. Evangelism funds will be raised to hire another conference Bible-worker Trainer, increase subsidies to our Illinois churches, and grow a local church plant. Watch for new offering envelopes and information to arrive at your church.
