What is Urbana?
The Urbana Student Missions Conference explores the what, how and why of global mission.
Every three years, InterVarsity in Canada and the US invite you and thousands of others to embark on the spirit-led, multi-cultural adventure of Urbana. Come discover God’s invitation to you, as you hear from missionaries around the world and gain the tools and connections you need to step into that invitation.
Ready to be inspired by those who’ve gone before you, prayed for by those supporting you and empowered to go where God is leading?
Why Go to Urbana?
Find clarity through 200+ seminars, one-on-one prayer ministry and a huge exhibition hall, where God will reveal how your passions, strengths and major align with his invitation for you
Learn and worship in new ways as the music, arts and Revelation studies at Urbana invite you to engage with different languages, cultures and ideas
Be challenged during plenaries as experts from around the globe explore what it means to live like Jesus in a broken world
Canadian Student Leadership Track (CSLT)
How can we more effectively reach Canada with Jesus’ message? Through CSLT, one of many tracks you can sign up for at Urbana, you will hear stories shared from missionaries within the Canadian context and study Revelation with peers from every province. We want your voice around the table as we consider what it means to be missionaries in Canada!
