About Us

Blackhawk Presbytery

 
Blackhawk presbytery is a middle-governing body of the Presbyterian Church (USA). A presbytery is a corporate expression of the church consisting of all the churches and ministers of the Word and Sacrament within a certain district.
 
Blackhawk Presbytery comprises 75 congregations in a a mix of older and newly established communities--large and small--in northern Illinois. The presbytery is both rural and urban, with areas of declining population and areas of lively growth. Building on the strength of our congregations and our members, Blackhawk Presbytery is reaching out to create faith communities and ministries that reflect today's missional needs. Stronghold Camp & Retreat Center is a ministry of the Presbytery. Blackhawk Presbytery is a member of the higher governing body, the Synod of Lincoln Trails of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
