Urbana is a conference that happens once every 3 years bringing together a diverse mix of college and graduate students, faculty, recent graduates, pastors, church and ministry leaders, missions organizations and schools.
For more than 70 years, this missions conference for students has called over 300,000 to join God’s global mission. When many of us hear “global mission,” we automatically assume it means full-time service overseas, translating Scripture or planting churches. God’s global mission includes those kinds of ministries without a doubt, but it’s not limited to them. As Christians, we are all missionaries. Urbana can help you see how what you’re doing right now and what you’re passionate about can make a difference for Christ’s kingdom in our campuses and cities and ultimately the world.
“God used Urbana to put me in a place that fits who He made me to be. Urbana can help you find what He designed you to do and enjoy.”
“Urbana gave me a picture of what heaven could look like and made me want to work toward that with every fiber of my being.”
“The Lord used my time at Urbana to transform my life in a way I didn’t know I needed. Urbana changed my life, and nothing has been the same since.”
