Urbana ’03 moves teens hearts for missions

By December 30, 2003

USA (MNN) — Students are hearing the need for missions during the world’s largest teen missions conference taking place this week. Students from 120 countries are seeing their view of missions challenged at InterVarsity Christian Fellowship’s Urbana ’03, which is being held on the campus of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign this week through Wednesday.

Terra from Canada says her view of missions has changed. “I felt God reigniting my hope because I became rather cynical that most Christian young people aren’t very serious or committed about world missions, and I was inspired because I saw 20,000 people who didn’t seem to be faking it.”

Abram from Illinois feels God moving at the convention. “Just ways in which to live a life more for Christ in this world in order to be a culture changing generation.”

The theme of this year’s conference is “Your Kingdom Come, Your Will be Done”. The 19,000 in attendance will be hearing more on how to impact the world as Islam continues to advance both on their college campus and abroad.

Continue to pray that many will be called to full time missionary service.
