Greetings, friends! I want to welcome you to our website and to the President’s page. I hope you will find it a source of information, news, and resources, to help you effectively accomplish what God has called us to do—to GO and MAKE DISCIPLES… (Matthew 28:19, 20)
Although it is impossible to get to know each one of you, one of my joys is to visit our churches and to meet and talk with many of you who make up the almost 14,000 members of the Illinois Conference. I want you to know we here at the Conference Office exist to serve the churches and schools, as well as through our pastors and teachers. Please feel free to call or write to us and let us know how we can best support what God is doing in your church.
As we look forward with confident expectation to the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, I encourage you to read God’s Word and inspired writings and to pray for one another.
May God bless you and keep you.
"The president, who shall be an ordained minister of experience, is the first officer and shall report to the Executive Committee of the conference in consultation with the secretary and the treasurer. He shall act as chair of the Constituency Meetings and the Executive Committee, and serve in the general interests of the Illinois Conference as the Constituency and the Executive Committee shall determine. In his leadership he shall adhere to the policies of the Lake Union Conference, the North American Division and the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, work in harmony with the Lake Union Conference Committee, and in close counsel with the union officers."
