Dedicated to calling whole-life, whole-world disciples, Urbana is an eye-opening global missions conference, a sacred space for college and graduate students, faculty, and church leaders to hear God’s call. SAMS will once again be at Urbana seeking to connect with young adults who are discerning a call for crossing cultures to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Additionally, the mission network Anglican Global Mission Partners (AGMP), that SAMS is a part of, will exhibit at the conference and for the first time will coordinate a collaborative exhibit in the Outreach Section that will bring together Anglican Frontier Missions, Global Teams, New Wineskins Missionary Network, and Trinity School for Ministry (in the Seminary Section). The partners will be ready, eager to guide and pray for participants as they seek what God might be calling them to. You may discover more at https://urbana.org/.
If you are coming or are sending young adults, please email Jenny Noyes at firstname.lastname@example.org, the AGMP Exhibit Coordinator.
AGMP will also host a Saturday night reception at Urbana. All who have an interest in mission and how Anglicans are engaging in this mission around the world are welcome to join us at a meet and greet reception with food and drink at 9:30 p.m. on December 29. We will gather at J.F. Sanfilippo’s Restaurant (in the Drury Inn & Suites just one block from the Dome at 705 N. Broadway) on Saturday immediately following the evening session. Bring a friend! Contact Nita at email@example.com if you desire more details.
Urbana is letting students know about mission trips in which they can participate. If you have upcoming mission trips planned that would welcome the addition of college students, please email Jenny at firstname.lastname@example.org with those details as well.
Following Urbana, SAMS will also be represented at the Cross for the Nations Conference, Louisville, KY, January 2-5. “Cross exists to see our generation live for the most loving cause in the universe: bringing people from every tribe, tongue, and nation into the everlasting joy of knowing and worshiping Jesus.”
Please pray for the SAMS teams composed of missionaries, missionary Bridgers, and staff that will be representing the Society at these upcoming university student and young adult conferences: Urbana Student Missions Conference, December 27-31; Cross for the Nations Conference, January 2-5; and Jubilee, February 22-24. Pray also that many young people will respond to the Lord’s call to the nations.
