IBSA’s zone strategy groups the state’s local Baptist Associations into 10 regions, each served by a Zone Consultant from the IBSA staff. The plan helps us work more closely than ever with associations, churches, and ministry leaders.

Your ibsa network
is for you

We see the needs of pastors and are committed to expanding ways we serve and support those on the front lines of ministry. There can be no better investment in healthy, growing, missionary churches than to invest in the care and encouragement of the pastors who serve and lead them.

on mission together

Our churches are our missionaries. We help each church reach  its community and make disciples in every corner of Illinois.
