Mission Challenge

2022 Mission Challenge Graphics




The NIC Board of Global Ministries thanks the more than 60 churches who helped fill the truck for the Annual Conference mission challenge. We collected nearly 4,500 pounds (and still counting) of most-needed items for the Midwest Mission Distribution Center (MMDC)! An additional $700 plus in cash was donated. Special thanks to the youth and adult volunteers from Our Redeemer's UMC in Schaumburg who helped take in the donations, even in the rain. Watch a video update from Chantel Corrie, MMDC's Executive Director.
