One of the largest student missions conference in the world, Urbana’s primary audience is college and university students (both undergraduate and graduate) and other people between ages 17 and 29. Other attenders include faculty, pastors, church and ministry leaders, and exhibitors. They come wanting to learn how God can use them in many forms of missions outreach. Since 1946, Urbana has helped over 300,000 people consider their role in God’s global mission. It takes place every three years in late December. Over 16,000 people and 250+ missions agencies and seminaries participated in Urbana 15. The next conference will be held December 2021, in St. Louis, Missouri.

Urbana’s website is a tremendous source of information for anyone wanting to learn about short-term and career mission opportunities. It also includes a regularly-updated blog with many helpful articles.
