Vision: 
Our vision is to see movements of churches empowered by grace for the world’s good and God’s glory. We believe this vision encompasses but is wider than individual people coming to know Jesus. It desires to see people gathered in vibrant churches, proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom at every scale. Our role is to resource and support the work of likeminded individuals, organizations and national church leaders. We believe mission is powered by grace we receive in Christ, which allows us to pursue an ongoing faith and repentance that continually reveals our dependence on God’s grace. The preaching, healing and equipping activities we pursue work together to point to the robust, multifaceted glory of our great God.
Describe the types of ministry opportunities your agency will offer to Urbana 12 participants: 
World Harvest has teams in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America. All opportunities include discipleship structured around forming a gospel-centered life. We offer opportunities ranging from short (1-2 week) vision trips to our fields where inquirers can discern God's calling to missions to Long-term (5 year) mission appointments. For Urbana, we have found that our most appealing opportunities are 2-6 month internships for college students or recent grads and 2 year apprenticeships that are often a first step to long-term service.
Besides exhibiting at Urbana 12, we'll also be...:
