Illinois Great Rivers

Vision: All the physically and spiritually hungry people of our world feasting on God’s abundant grace at God’s table so that they experience God’s unconditional love for them, are formed in that love, and are sent to live and share that love with the individuals and institutions of our world.

Mission: The purpose of the annual conference is to form disciples of Jesus Christ by equipping its local churches for ministry and by providing a connection for ministry beyond the local church, all to the glory of God.

To accomplish the mission, we have five ministry priorities:
Forming spiritual leaders
Developing discipleship systems
Starting new churches and revitalizing existing churches
Engaging in mission — locally and globally
Embracing technology and relationships
