New Website Launched

Posted: January 1 2018 at 12:00 AM

Take a look around the Northern Illinois Conference's revamped website. We hope the new design and features will make it easier for visitors to find information, news, events, and resources. It's highly recommended to view this site by using the Chrome or Firefox browser. Internet Explorer does not support many of our features.

The site is organized into four main categories under the Shepherding Team umbrella: Congregational Life, Clergy Life, Missional Life and Connectional Resources.

Click on the image icons below the main photo slider to choose your area of interest.

At the top banner, you will find links to the Annual Conference Shepherding Team, Calendar, News, About Us, Communications and Contact information.

The Calendar can be filtered by categories. Take a look.

Under About you will find the Bishop's Office, staff information, the six Districts, and the directory.

Under the Communications' tab, you can find the eNews archive, Reporter, United Media Resources Center, Submit news form, and sympathy notices.

Browse the site and get to know more about the Northern Illinois Conference. We welcome your feedback. Please send your thoughts to communications@umcnic.org.
