Beginning Jan. 9, 2017, NIC Media Resource Center to partner with

Illinois Great Rivers United Media Resource Center (UMRC)

Beginning Jan. 9, 2017, Northern Illinois Conference churches and individuals will be able to access media resources for free (excluding return postage) through a new partnership with the Illinois Great Rivers United Media Resource Center (UMRC).

Following the retirement of the NIC’s Media Resource Director Susan Gieseler, we began researching the most beneficial ways to continue offering resources to local churches. The UMRC, which is located at the Illinois Great Rivers conference office in Springfield, was an ideal situation. Most of our resources will be sent there and included in their online catalog for easy access.

Look for a link to order resources soon. Read more…
