After a brief hiatus of a couple of years, the Northern Illinois Conference is delighted to announce that we will be re-starting the Plumbline Tour. 

This 4-day New York City trip weaves together a faith-based perspective on world events with daily seminars at the Church Center for the United Nations directly across the street from the United Nations in mid-town Manhattan. It brings together youth (14 - 17) from across our conference to form relationships as well as learn, have fun and shape faith. 

This year's seminar will focus on "Islamaphobia." The tour will be held Sun., July 29 - Wed., Aug. 1, 2018 in NYC and will include a trip to the United Nations and a Broadway play. We will be staying at the Hampton Inn Manhattan Grand Central. Space is limited.

If interested, please contact NIC Plumbline Tour Coordinator, Amania Drane, at, or 630.886.7469.
