Urbana 2022

Students, faculty, pastors, parents, retired professionals — God is calling everyone to join his global mission. Together at Urbana, we’ll gain a bigger vision of the world and experience God’s heart for the nations


Anyone who has graduated from secondary school who wants to know more about God’s mission for their lives.


Urbana is a discernment space that brings together a diverse group of students and calls them — through multicultural worship, Bible exposition, and teaching from worldwide missions experts — to give their whole lives for God’s global mission. Urbana was started by a group of students in Toronto in 1946 and has been held almost every three years.  It is guaranteed to be life changing.


December 28-31 (YES, it is over Christmas vacation, but we promise that it includes the BIGGEST NYE party you will ever attend…at least 10,000 guests if not more!)


Indianapolis, Indiana (~10 hours by charter bus)


Either you know why or, ask God why and he will give you an answer.  It’s time!

How Much?

The Bible teaches that there are many costs to following Jesus.  Going to Urbana will require personal sacrifice, but the benefits are immeasurable.

  • Time Commitment: 

    • Meeting with the BBC Travelling Team monthly from September to November to prepare + personal time in prayer and fundraising.

    • Four Full Days in between Christmas and New Year’s

  • Monetary Commitment:

    • The exact cost is unknown due to the exchange rate between CAD and USD, however it could be about $2,000 CAD (registration, hotel, meals transportation).

    • Participants are expected to save and contribute as much as they can afford towards their Urbana experience, however,

    • BBC does not want money to be a barrier for people to attend Urbana 22.  Support, sponsorships and fundraising opportunities will be available throughout the year.
