Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Registration closed October 22

Urbana depends on the service of hundreds of volunteers; we're glad you're interested in volunteering at the Urbana 12 Student Missions Conference. Volunteers give of their time and energy to extend hospitality to conference participants and to provide various and necessary services to make Urbana 12 run smoothly and serve participants well.

Additional information about volunteering can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions or you can contact Urbana.


We encourage all students who would like to experience Urbana 12 to come as participants, rather than volunteers. There are ways for students to contribute to the work of Urbana 12 by serving as stadium servants and as communion servers. More information about these opportunities is provided when students register.

There are two ways non-students can volunteer:

Daily Servant

Daily Servants are non-student volunteers who serve for a portion of a day or a few complete days at the conference. These are often, though not necessarily, individuals from the greater St. Louis area. Along with an opportunity to serve, Daily Servants will receive a one-day pass to attend the conference on a day that they are not volunteering. Like Stewards, Daily Servants are responsible for paying for housing, meals, travel, and other costs as necessary.

You can read the liability release form for Daily Servants here.


Stewards are non-student volunteers who work for the entire conference. Urbana 12 covers Stewards’ registration fees, but other costs such as housing, meals, and travel to St. Louis are the responsibility of the Steward. Jobs for Stewards will be assigned closer to the conference. If/when Stewards are not working, they are free to experience and take part in the conference.
