Faith Today Senior Editor Karen Stiller is a big fan of the Urbana Student Missions Conference. She recently blogged about why she is keen on seeing 2,500 Canadians attend the five-day conference in St. Louis, MO., this December:
“In 1993 my husband Brent and I travelled to Urbana, Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship’s student mission conference that happens in the snowy days between Christmas and New Year’s every three years…
“We pledged, back then, that when we had kids the right age (grade 12 and university/college), we would make sure they got there. And we have. Three years ago our oldest son made it there. And came back refreshed and challenged. This coming year, Urbana 2015, he will go again along with his younger sister, in her grade 12 year. In three years we will make the trek again with our youngest.
That’s how good it is….”
