Just over three years ago, I was one of 19,000 people at the Urbana 03 missions conference. It was easily the most culturally diverse Christian gathering that I had ever been a part of. Though it didn’t live up to my hopes and expectations, I was struck by the potential that this conference possessed.
Urbana 06 just happened in St. Louis and here are some press releases on it:
