Our Activities

This page is designed to provide the Pastors of Baptist General State Convention of Illinois with information and inspiration between the times that we will meet in each calendar year. It is my prayer that we will continue to help each other with our experiences and resource discovery..

I Remain,

                                OCTOBER 15, 2017 IS NATIONAL LAYMEN DAY 


Jeremiah 3:15 (KJV)

15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.



Reverend Dr. William H. Foster, Jr.

President, Baptist General State Convention of IL, Inc.



A Leader with a Servant’s Heart

"Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many."

~Matthew 20:28 (NIV)~




I greet you in the matchless, marvelous name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus the Christ. 

October is Clergy Appreciation Month.  Let us remember to lift up in prayer all Pastors, and appreciate them for the labor to their flocks.  Let us remember each of the churches on the National, State, and District levels.  Let us also pray for all of those being affected by the tragic crises that continue to flood our communities near and far.


The Baptist General State Convention strives to hold true to the founding mission of our Convention, which is to help equip others in the building of God's Kingdom.  


Come looking for a great board meeting.  I thank you for your continued support, and look forward to seeing all of you.


In the Spirit of the Savior,

Rev. Dr. William H. Foster, Jr.
