It's not just five days at the end of December. Urbana continues even today.

A highlight of each Urbana convention is the call to commitment, and this year was no exception: 152 attendees acknowledged that they made a first-time decision to follow Jesus Christ at Urbana 06 and 9,000 people committed to use their vocation to serve God's Kingdom purposes globally and/or cross-culturally.
