Greetings from Knoxville on Day 5! We cannot believe the last day of CHIC is here. God has been pouring out His Spirit upon His children…we have seen it and it is MARVELOUS in our eyes. Yesterday students attended workshops that included topics such as radical discipleship, being in relationship with others, exploring full time ministry, missionary ministry and human trafficking. The evening worship experience included communion and compelled children to answer the question, “do you want to be well.” Students confessed the sin and woundedness that is tearing their souls and laid it at the throne of grace. They then each journeyed to the cross to receive a white flag that symbolized their surrender to Christ. It was such a moving experience as hundreds of children wept at the cross and were sorrowful before the Lord. [+]
About six months ago Craig Lueck, two-time CHIC creative mastermind, called Minnesota for his brother and instead his sister-in-law, Linda, answered the call. They got to chatting and creative thoughts collided – through the past months their initial thoughts of making banners for each church group evolved into a humanitarian endeavor dubbed “Project Warmth”.

I would always rather tell one story well than tell seven stories poorly. So, at a conference of over 5,000, a few hundred of whom I’ve met briefly, and a few handfuls of whom I’ve had the pleasure of conversing further with, I think it is definitely acceptable and probably preferable for me to acquaint you well with one, rather than slightly with several.

Greetings from Knoxville on Day 4! Yesterday started out with a spirit of exhaustion but the Lord infused his strength throughout the camp as the day progressed on! A thunder and lightening storm closed down the afternoon outdoor festivities but it did not hamper the spirit of the students. They attended workshops that included topics such as how to walk into your calling, wacky Jesus lessons, healthy dating, evangelism and diversity. The evening worship experience included a heart surgery sermon delivered by Francis Chan that challenged students to ask themselves the question, “do you really love Jesus?” They were encouraged to confess the secret sin in their lives that keeps them from a purely intimate relationship with Christ.
