Meeting students on campus, engaging them in missions

nterVarsity Christian Fellowship's Urbana Student Missions Conference is expanding its outreach this year by going on tour to campuses across the nation.

For decades, InterVarsity has relied on its Student Missions Conference to inform, recruit and send thousands of missionaries around the world. While that aspect has not changed, Tom Lin, director of Urbana and InterVarsity's vice president for missions, explains that his group will be touring campuses across the country this year.

"Most of our publicity has gone through local churches only, as well as other media, such as radio," Lin details. "But what we wanted to do is go to the actual campuses this time, talk about Urbana, and actually talk about missions, engage students in missions -- just like we would at the actual conference."
