Evangelical convention is changing location

MADISON, Wis. — InterVarsity Christian Fellowship announced that its Mission Convention for college students, held on the University of Illinois campus in Urbana since 1948, will move in 2006 to the Edward Jones Dome and adjacent America's Center in St. Louis.

The evangelical event, usually held every three years the week before New Year's, is one of the largest religious gatherings for North American college students. Some 19,000 people from the United States and other nations attended last December's convention to learn about foreign missionary careers.
