Bald Knob Cross
of Peace

Among the foothills of the Ozark Mountain range that stretch into Union County and southern Illinois, rises a beacon, a monument of peace, faith, charity, and of hope.
Towering above the landscape at a over 111 feet, and visible for over 7,500 square miles, this is the Bald Knob Cross of Peace – one of the largest crosses in the United States.
Bald Knob Cross is situated in the Shawnee National Forest near the small town of Alto Pass, Illinois. BK Mountain itself towers 1000 feet above sea level.

 The Southern Illinois Chapter of Child Evangelism Fellowship of Illinois, Inc. is excited and over joyed to be hosting the 2023 Fall Event at Bald Knob Cross of Peace. The beautiful Cross stands a beacon of light in Southern Illinois and represents long-standing faith and perseverance.
