Knowing that God continues to each of us to move out beyond our comfort zones and to walk our faith journey alongside Christian brothers and sisters in other cultures experience a faith journey, Illinois Great Rivers Conference now has a partnership with the United Methodist Churches in Honduras. The first IGRC mission trip to Honduras was held on August of 2012 and the second was held in June of 2013.

If you feel God calling you to experience transforming fellowship, worship and service alongside brothers and sisters in the faith who are waiting to meet you in Honduras, act quickly. The team size is limited to 15 people and it is anticipated this initial Honduras mission team will be filled before the deposit deadline.

It is anticipated that this project will take two to three years to complete and other teams from the United States will also be assigned to work at this location. As this project begins, the discussion to continue development of a conference partnership with Honduras continues as we seek God’s guidance and direction.
