North Illinois District

The LCMS Northern Illinois District is 220-plus congregations and mission sites of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, spanning 24 counties in the northern one-third of Illinois. President Dan P. Gilbert is leading the LCMS Northern Illinois District with a strategy for New Starts…New Believers. Why? He tells us in his own words:

“While always acknowledging that it is God who makes new believers through the work of the Holy Spirit in Word and Sacraments, he has chosen to use us in this process. What a privilege! We find new believers in larger numbers in new starts than in existing ministries, which makes new starts a top priority for what 220-some congregations should be focusing on as we walk together.”
