Your MIO giving stays 100% here, and supports the health of Illinois churches.
STATEWIDE GOAL | $350,000
Participate in the 2023 MIO, and help make
With over 8 million lost people, Illinois is a rich mission field. Yet the lost are not without a witness. The nearly 900 IBSA member churches are missionaries here. They are spread strategically across the cities, small towns, and rural backroads of Illinois. In order to reach the lost of their communities, each of these churches needs to be healthy.
As our Illinois culture continues to shift, bringing new challenges to local ministry, IBSA is working hard to both revitalize existing churches and help plant new churches in changing neighborhoods.
Where the Offering Goes
100% OF THIS OFFERING STAYS RIGHT HERE IN ILLINOIS TO SUPPORT MINISTRY ON OUR MISSION FIELD.
Your MIO giving helps provide financial grants and coaching for Refocus church revitalization ministries, one-on-one Next Step consultations helping churches discover new ways to reach changing communities, pastor search team training and support for churches during minister transition periods, and local gatherings in rural and urban communities providing growth opportunities for new pastors and leaders. These are just a few ways churches are being helped to grow stronger and reach their communities because of the partnership and statewide giving of the Illinois Baptist family.
