Illinois is the 5th most populous state in the United States, and is often noted as a microcosm of the entire country. With 12.88 million people, and 1,519 high schools made up of 1,188 public schools and 331 private schools, Illinois is a vital and large mission field to reach. The heart of our efforts to reach Illinois are our four chapters at: Wheaton College, Moody Bible Institute, Trinity International University, and in the Southwest Suburbs of Chicago.
One story from this region comes from students at Hersey High School who hosted an Outreach Week. This was their third time to host on-campus rallies, and they creatively choose to have Christian students share their testimonies with their peers. As a result, nine students boldly shared why they follow Christ! Ryan Berg, one of these students, shared late how leading outreach at his campus has helped him grow: “Through the outreach event ‘Unashamed,’ I have grown in my confidence in sharing the awesome news of Christ with fellow students that I otherwise would have never talked to.

Strategically located in the heart of the Midwest, the Illinois School Project team has set its eyes on strategic expansion across the Midwest to reach students with the Gospel. God has opened doors in recent months to begin working with schools in 3 main cities: Cleveland OH, Greenbay WI, and Baltimore MA.
One story from these expansion projects comes from Pickerington North High School in Ohio, where college students from our Moody Bible Institute Chapter spent their spring break helping student host their first ever Outreach Week. The theme of the Outreach Week was ALIVE. Several students spoke and two former Ohio State football players shared their testimonies throughout the week.
One example of bold leadership for Christ came from Dylanie, the leader of the Christian club. She shared part of her experience during the first day of the rallies: “During the lunch rally, I had the opportunity to speak to students and I had the opportunity to share my testimony. Later that day, I had a girl come up to me and tell me that she brought her friend to the rally. She said that the friend didn't believe in God and that she has been praying for them. She also said that after attending our event, her friend agreed to go to church with her! I can't be more excited!” During this one Outreach Week, 207 students heard about Christ, many of them for the first time.
