About Vision

The Vision Conference is a 5-day journey for international college students and their American friends, hosted by Bridges International. We gather daily for energetic meetings with live music and engaging speakers to investigate life’s deepest questions.  Together, with the Bible as our guide, we will explore what it means to Belong in relationship with God and other people. We will also discover a new American city through touring and fun activities. Vision is a great place to make new friends and deepen current friendships. Join us in Austin, Texas from December 28, 2015 – January 1, 2016! Check out the teaser video (left) for this year and an informational overview video about Vision (right).
