Pastor Swenson shares this thought with you, “Illinois Lutheran is more than an institution of academic and co-curricular excellence. Illinois Lutheran is a family. It is a family that walks with Jesus through His Word each day. It is a family that faces challenges and celebrations together knowing that all things work out for the good of those who have faith in Jesus. It is a family that is bonded together through the death and resurrection of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, and will remain together for all eternity. It is a family that I am proud to call my own!”
