Olivet Nazarene University
1 University Ave
Bourbonnais, IL 60914

The International Festival of Christian Creative Arts Ministry is held on the beautiful park-like campus of Olivet Nazarene University. With 30 major buildings on 225 acres, ONU provides an ideal setting for our conference. The University, in the historic village of Bourbonnais, Illinois is conveniently located 50 minutes south of Chicago's Loop, just north of Kankakee, Illinois.

ONU is on Highway 45/52 in Bourbonnais, Illinois.

Airport Transportation Information from O'Hare and Midway Airports

When flying in to O'Hare or Midway Airports you have three options for transportation to Olivet Nazarene University (ONU).

Option 1:  You can rent a vehicle. If you are planning on staying off-campus for the week this is your best option. We have found that it is cheaper to rent a vehicle for the week than renting a vehicle for two one-way trips (to and from the airport).

Option 2:   O'Hare is 71 miles from the ONU campus.  Take a shuttle bus via CoachUSA to Midway Airport then take River Valley Metro from Midway Airport to Manteno, Illinois.  From the transit point in Manteno,  you take another shuttle to the Bourbonnais transit point then transfer to the Bourbonnais 11 route which takes you to the ONU campus (request stop closet to Main St and University Ave).  Please allow plenty of time to make this journey.  If you arrive at O'Hare later in the day you may not be able to make it to ONU without an overnight stay near Midway, especially if arriving on Sunday.

Midway Airport is 49 miles from the ONU campus.  If you have a choice, fly into Midway as shuttle connections are easier and cheaper from there.  From Midway, take the River Valley Metro shuttle to Manteno, then take the shuttle to Bourbonnais transit point then transfer to the Bourbonnais 11 route which takes you to the ONU campus.

Contact the shuttle services for times, cost and reservations: 

Option 3:  The following companies offer shuttle services from Chicago O'Hare and Midway airports to the ONU campus. Some of these companies offer rates per vehicle, so they may be more cost-effective for larger groups.

Note: Creative Ministry Solutions has compiled information regarding shuttle services in the Chicago area. This is a courtesy list. Creative Ministry Solutions is in no way affiliated with, nor are we recommending, the listed shuttle services.

Alternative Transportation

If you are connected with a church, consider contacting people within your church to find friends in the Chicago area that might be able to provide a ride to and from the airport. You might also check with churches in the area that share the same denomination as your church.

Of course, the simplest solution for some of our attendees is to drive to the conference. We get many teams who drive across country. This allows them to bring more puppets and props to use in competitions and an opportunity to share your ministry along the way. Depending on the price of flights in your area, this may be more cost-effective choice.
