Jim Tebbe, Vice President of Missions and Urbana Director, Inter Varsity
May 6, 2010
Description: As we seek to involve the next generation in missions: What are the cultural realities we need to be aware of? What motivates this generation? Where are young people starting from as they weigh their options and identify their vocation? How does creative- access mission work change the traditional missionary training process? How does the time needed to prepare for the field differ from previous generations, and why?
