Philippines Mission Partnership

The Philippines Mission Partnership the newest mission experience now being offered by Illinois Great Rivers Conference.  The first IGRC team traveled to the Palawan Conference of the United Methodist Church in the Philippines in March, 2016.   A Mission Center and Activity Center was the main building project in 2016. This center will be used for youth and children camps as well as a retreat center for local United Methodist Churches.  A rice project is developed to help sustain the maintenance and support of this mission complex as well as to provide food for church workers in the area.  The project is located near the town of Calasaguen on the Island of Palawan.  Work remains to complete the bunkhouse at the Mission Center.

IGRC mission teams spend a minimum of two nights in Manila and have an opportunity to learn about the United Methodist Church in the Philippines as well as fellowship with several congregations while in country. The United Methodist Church in The Philippines is subdivided into twenty-two regions called Annual Conferences. There are three episcopal areas. The United Methodist Church is growing and vibrant in The Philippines.

IGRC mission teams to the Philippines are being led by Rev Cecilia Granadosin and Rev Stephen Granadosin who both are originally from the Philippines. What a joy it is for them to lead mission teams from IGRC to their homeland to assist in the growth of The United Methodist Church in the Philippines.
