It is our desire that every Illinois Baptist woman acknowledge her responsibility in the Great Commission, identify her mission field, and develop a plan of what being on mission is going to look like in her life. We encourage you to participate with us in one or more of our upcoming mission trips.

Our 2015 mission trips are coming together. We have trips planned in Illinois, our nation and to the ends of the world. Click on the link below to see our list of trips available.
