Press Release

College students from across the country and around the globe will be traveling to St. Louis in December for Urbana 09, InterVarsity's twenty-second Student Missions Conference. Many participants will be inspired to dedicate their lives to God's service. Some will answer the call to the mission field. And some will earn college credits.

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship's 22nd Student Missions Conference will address some of the most pressing global issues presently faced by missions practitioners around the world. The next registration price deadline is October 17, 2009.

A record 18.4 million college and university students are beginning classes on campuses across the country as a new school year gets underway. InterVarsity Christian Fellowship staff members are sharing the gospel with these students.

Working from December 26th to January 1st, volunteers will help with registration, transportation, and other aspects of Urbana 09. Some who volunteer will have already experienced an Urbana conference for themselves and want to help others share the experience. Most of the volunteers will come from the St. Louis area, but a number of volunteers will travel to St. Louis for Urbana 09.

With less than six months before the beginning of Urbana 09, thousands of registrants have already committed to attend InterVarsity's 22nd triennial student missions conference in St. Louis, MO.

The influence of InterVarsity's Urbana student missions conference, the longest running student conference in the world, is being multiplied by a wave of new Urbana-type conferences in many other countries. What began as a movement of North American students in 1946 in Toronto is being increasingly owned by university students from Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America.

InterVarsity will be operating its 2009 Global Projects overseas as planned this summer
