Kristine Reddington (InterVarsity Staff, JCFN Associate Staff)
Hi there ?!
My name is Kristine Reddington and I’m an associate staff for JCFN.
I live in Utah which some people think is boring but I love it! haha
Does anyone know what conference is happening at the end of this year??
For those who said “ec”…..wrong!
haha This year, we don’t have ec because..we have URBANA instead!
Urbana is a missions conference held every 3 years in St. Louis.
More than 16,000 participants gather together to hear from the Lord.
Today, I wanted to share a little about the conference
so that you can think about joining us at this year’s URBANA!
Reasons why you should say “YES” to Urbana:
1. Experience how big God is
16,000+ people from around the world come together for URBANA.
As you worship with ALL 16,000+ participants and hear stories from around the world,
you will be in awe of what God is doing among the nations.
2. Meet people who are in love with Jesus
The main sessions and seminars are super helpful but what I think is such a blessing is the time you are able to spend with other participants. God has such unique stories for each person and you will be blessed as you hear stories from others?
p.s. My friend met his wife at URBANA?haha
3. God wants to give you something at URBANA
“He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
When you make time and give 5 days to Jesus, God IS going to move.
There may be things that God has been wanting to tell you for a while now.
Would URBANA be a good place where you will be able to hear from God clearly?
4. It only happens every 3 years
URBANA is NOT happening next year. In fact, it’s not happening until 2021!!
(Wow, I’m gonna be old) You may be thinking, “I can go to next Urbana~”
but to those, I want to say, “Why not now?”
If God doesn’t say to you, “Don’t go.”
I think it’s good to say “YES” this year because why not ☺
5. JCFN is going!
Well by JCFN, I mean just Setsu~ but STILL! haha
If you want to go to Urbana through JCFN,
you will be part of the “Global Students Track” and
will be able to hang out with some students who are coming from Japan. There will be Japanese interpretation for those who need it!
Also, we will be cooking rice during free time so really, you should join us? haha
It’s been 6 years since my first URBANA in 2012 and a lot has happened since then. God has challenged me, grown me, and He has changed me for good. To me, URBANA was a big turning point in my life. It was the place I met JCFN even!
URBANA is a special place for many of us.
SO, will you think about joining us at this year’s URBANA?
I promise you, it will change your life.
God WILL speak to those who are willing to hear from Him.
Praying that I will be able to see you at URBANA…?
