Missions on Staten Island
Urbana Missions Conference
"God’s mission is for all humanity. Part of that mission is for the conversion and salvation of people, as well as discipleship and the building up of the church. And it’s also such things as the care of creation and dealing with systemic injustice." -Christy Wilson
Urbana is aimed at helping participants see:
- the Mission of God as revealed in Scripture
- the world for which God is concerned
- the unreached in their world
Urbana is helping participants live
- in right relationship with God
- with Jesus as Lord
- as missional Christians
Urbana is helping participants commit
- to witness – in word and deed
- to serve others
- to cross-cultural and global missions
What missions has taught me
- "Missions brings out the flesh in you." - Ruth Pham
- There is a need for dependence on God.
- It expands your vision into God's vision.
- It's not about pleasing people.
- We have to trust that the Holy Spirit will continue to work in that place even after we leave.
