Announcements

Don’t let it break your heart! If the watch you purchased in the CHICstore has gone and broke, complete this form and hold tight. Supplies are limited – act now!
You’ve been waiting for it – and today’s the day! Video of CHIC 2012’s speaker messages are now available for you to watch online. The videos will be available for a limited time through January 2013 to bring you into the beginning of school or the fall launch of your ministry. We loved the messages our speakers brought to us at CHIC 2012 and you will too! [+]
It’s Friday and that means it’s time for a new speaker interview! We’re releasing exclusive backstage interviews each week from 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 second post-CHIC backstage interview with Bianca Juarez! What would she say to you now that you are home? Watch to find out.

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

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.

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 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!

The Christian walk is a journey not taken alone! Our journey is an adventure of spiritual formation and growth. Being discipled in this walk is so important and we don’t want you to miss out on the resources available to walk alongside you in your new life after CHIC. [+]
Covenant World Relief (CWR) has been the response of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) to extreme poverty, hunger, injustice, and disaster for more than 60 years. Together, CWR and Covenant World Mission partnered with national church ministries to break the cycle of poverty for children and students through formal and non-formal education in the countries of India, Colombia, Congo, and South Sudan.

Covenant Kids offers scholarships to ministries who are faithfully doing the everyday work of justice. Through formal and non-formal education teachers and volunteer workers reach out to child laborers, children of commercial sex workers, internally displaced families, families living in the dumps, and thousands more.
