Reforging a Passion for Evangelism in the hearts of the churches of the Illinois Great Rivers Conference
In 2007, 74 percent of churches in the Illinois Great Rivers Conference received two or less persons by Professions of Faith. That same year, 60 percent or 529 IGRC churches had no professions of faith.
Pastors, church council chairs, lay leaders, pastor-parish relations chairs and outreach chairs are encouraged to take part in Forged in the Fire, a three site event hosted by the IGRC Evangelism Committee.
