The third pillar of our mission directing our work together in the vision laid out for us:

Encouraging personal witnessing, congregational engagement with

Witness: Resolutions adopted:
  • 3-01 Congregations can have a greater impact for the Gospel by working closely together
  • 3-02 Adoption of Belize as the Northern Illinois District's international mission focus
  • 3-03A To study the Northern Illinois District's ministry with multi-ethnic communities and grow in our understanding that actions of racial reconciliation clearly affirm Biblical truth

If you’d like help with implementing District resolutions in your ministry context, please contact your NID staff.

As we gather together by the will of God to move Ethnic Ministry forward in the NID by the grace of God, we will take the opportunity on May 21, 2022 at Concordia University – Chicago to answer together two questions: 1. Who has God called us to be as His people in Ethnic Ministry in the Northern Illinois District of the LCMS, and 2. Where is God calling us to go in Ethnic Ministry in the NID for the foreseeable future?
