Covenant Kids is so grateful for the generous offering given during CHIC 2012! We are excited to see how God will use this enormous gift to provide life-changing education and loving care to thousands of children in Colombia, DR Congo, India and South Sudan. Our partner ministries in each of these countries have expressed their gratitude to all who attended CHIC 2012.

We want to invite you to follow the offering and witness first-hand what God is doing to bring hope to children. Trips are being planned to India and Colombia for Spring Break and Summer of 2013. If you are interested about these or other mission trips visit CovChurch.org and search CHIC trips or contact covenantkids(at)covchurch.org.

lost-and-found
If you lost/left a valuable item, we packed up what was in the CHIC Office at the end of the week and brought it back to Chicago with us.

Please complete this survey to identify your valuable and we’ll let you know if we have it. We are not providing descriptions on the website because we’re guessing more than a couple folks would love to get a new camera – and we want to be sure the person who claims the item is the person who left it behind. Items will be shipped to you at your expense.

NOTE – If you lost/left items in your dorm room at CHIC you’ll need to contact the conference office at UT:
• Telephone: (865) 974-0250
• Fax: (865) 974-0264
• Email: conferences(at)utk.edu

harvey-carey
It’s been seven days since we’ve seen you! As you settle into life at home we want to help you remember all the things God did during our week at CHIC. To help you with this we will be releasing an exclusive backstage interview every Friday from each of our five mainstage speakers. Hear what Harvey, Bianca, Francis, Judy, and Louie want to say to you now that you are home.

Check out our first post-CHIC backstage interview with Harvey Carey! What would he say to you now that you are home? Watch to find out.

chicmerch
The online CHICstore is LIVE – be sure to browse and buy on CovBooks.com! There you can purchase t-shirts, watches, jewelry, and other items that weren’t sold out at the CHICstore.

Some have expressed interest in purchasing white flags like what was used in the service Wednesday night. Search online for “blank bandanas” or consider “white cloth napkins” as an alternate. Chris Tomlin’s song White Flag (Passion 2012) was a huge hit – listen here and ask your students about these symbols.

share-story
Share your story! We want to hear your story (or stories!) about your experience leading up to, during the week, and since you’ve gone from CHIC 2012.

Note: Not all of the fields below are required, but we would love to be able to follow up with you so we ask that you consider leaving us your name and contact information. By sharing your story, you acknowledge that it may be used in future publications regarding CHIC and/or the various ministries of the ECC. Thanks!

average-youth-ministry
This last week I took my kids across the country to the University of Tennessee for our triennial youth ministry gathering, called CHIC. The acronym is not important, but what the event is, is one of the most important events I do in my student ministry. [+]
