M-DAT staffers Peter and David Armstrong and Paul Nielsen will be in St. Louis, Missouri on December 27, for Urbana, the largest missions conference in the United States. The conference continues through December 31. M-DAT has been preparing for Urbana09, which is held every three years and hosted by InterVarsity, for much of the year.
"We hope to help students, connect with the agencies we serve, and make a few good contacts with people who are interested in joining the M-DAT staff," said Peter Armstrong, executive director.
Fruit of the team's preparations include a new banner, which highlights all of M-DAT's family of services (shown at right), as well as new resource cards to hand out. This will be the third consecutive Urbana that M-DAT has attended.
