Urbana12 Student Missions Conference
Generations of college students have come to the Urbana Student Missions Conference to hear about global issues directly from those who are working in the field and respond to God’s call on their own lives. During the five days of Urbana, thousands of participants will experience multicultural worship and drama, dynamic speakers, in-depth Bible study, and focused prayer. They will also be encouraged to explore short-term and vocational opportunities as they interact with representatives from hundreds of mission organizations and educational institutions. Urbana is for North American students hosted by InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship of Canada, and Groupes Bibliques Universitaires et Collégiaux du Canada. Urbana 12 will be held December 27-31, 2012 in St. Louis, Missouri and is the 23rd such conference with the first being held in Toronto, ON in 1946.
