A graduate student in Survey Research and Methodology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, writes:
For members of the Emerging Scholars Network, the Urbana conference promises to be a fantastic event. I can personally speak to the value of attending Urbana as an undergraduate emerging scholar, and I anticipate that attending Urbana as a graduate student will be just as rewarding. First, the Urbana conference gives undergraduates and graduate students alike an opportunity to meet with Christian scholars who are further along the academic path than they are. In my own life, it has been very challenging to find other young Christians who plan to pursue a career in academia. Because of this, I was phenomenally blessed by ESNâ€™s social events, where I was able to meet, learn from, and be encouraged by others with a similar calling to mine.
Second, the sessions at Urbana that focused on academia were fantastic to go to as an undergraduate. Some of them helped me prepare for life in graduate school, while others helped me realize how my passion for academia could further the kingdom of God. I learned things from these sessions that helped me transition from undergraduate to graduate education, and that still encourage me and help me in my masterâ€™s program now.

No, this isn’t a post about the cost of discipleship. It’s about finding ways to pay for your registration and travel to Following Christ 2008, InterVarsity’s conference for graduate students, faculty, professionals, and even ESN members.
Jon Boyd, FC08 conference director, has put together a helpful video describing the many ways you can reduce your out-of-pocket costs for FC08, including a way to win one of three $50 registration discounts, just for watching the video.
BTW, you can see all of Jon’s FC08 videos (there are six and counting) here.
