In the Northern Illinois Conference, our local churches make a commitment to support local, regional and international mission projects and ministries through the Rainbow Covenant.
The first mile in becoming a Rainbow Covenant church is to fully participate in the mission and ministry of the Northern Illinois Conference through 100% apportionment giving. We give to our churches in order that we can be in mission with our local community and to the world. Through apportionments, our giving to the local church is extended to vital ministries across the Conference and around the world. Click here to learn more.
