Why should I attend Urbana?
Urbana allows students the opportunity to explore their place in the Kingdom in a unique environment with many resources and other students. It’s a chance to think thoughtfully about partaking in global missions and about what God may be calling you to do. Often times, the tendency is to think, “I won’t give my life to missions unless God calls me to.” Are we willing to change our perspective?
I’ll give my life to missions unless God calls me to do otherwise.
