July 15–20, 2018 // University of Tennessee
Let’s UNITE at CHIC 2018—in Christ we can be stronger together for his glory!
Every three years more than 5,000 students from across The Evangelical Covenant Church come together in one place to glimpse how they fit into the bigger picture of God’s kingdom. At CHIC, a Make and Deepen Disciples event, lives are changed as students are inspired to dive deeper in their faith together.
Join us July 15-20, 2018, at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville to worship, experience transformation, and make unforgettable memories!
You’ll get to spend time with your own youth group and meet new friends through morning Base Camp sessions. Afternoons are full of fun with your friends as you go on excursion adventures, swim or play sports on campus, and take part in a variety of other great options. And you won’t want to miss out on worship and our diverse range of dynamic speakers every night during MainStage.
At CHIC you get to join God in God’s work in ways that are challenging and exciting.
2018 artists + speakers
One of the highlights of each CHIC experience is hearing from our incredible artists and speakers. This diverse team of kingdom builders is passionate about sharing God’s word as well as their stories.
Don’t forget to check out our official CHIC Spotify playlist, featuring the artists you’ll see at CHIC as well as some of our other praise and worship faves. Listen to it to get pumped for CHIC this summer!
“I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”
THE PRE-CHIC CURRICULUM
One of the greatest gifts CHIC provides our youth is an incredible sense of the vast beauty of the kingdom of God. With more than 5,000 attendees from across the country and even the world, CHIC reflects the beautiful mosaic that makes up this kingdom. At the same time, we have also seen our students wrestle with the challenge of that incredible diversity when they are not fully prepared to encounter it. Our hope is to partner with you as we help all of our students prepare to join together—valuing and caring for one another as members of the family of God.
To equip you on this journey, we are excited to release the Pre-CHIC Curriculum! Join us to say that we commit to gather together to UNITE around this beautiful mosaic of God's kingdom and follow the Holy Spirit's lead at CHIC 2018. Youth Leaders, please walk through this curriculum with your students and sign the CHIC covenant together at the end.
Please return the signed covenant by June 1, 2018 to:
