Lake South


Rev. Jacques Conway, Lake South Dist. Supt.

Welcome to the Lake South District

On behalf of the Northern Illinois Conference, I welcome you to the Lake South District. On July 1, 2021, more than 75 churches, campus ministries and clergy from the previous Chicago Southern District and the Aurora District joined and history was made as we began ministry together for the first time as a new district.

Our God has called us together for this time, to love and care for all of God’s creations, while making Disciples for Jesus Christ. Our time is now because there may not be a later. Let us not tarry and together go forth immediately in faith, love, and service.

Shalom, Amor, Saranghaeyo, te a mo, Me do wo.
( I Love You) in several languages

~District Superintendent Jacques A. Conway

The mission of the Lake South District of the Northern Illinois Conference is to encourage, equip, connect and support our local churches in their call to Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World.
