What do 5,000+ teens, hundreds of youth leaders and thousands of volunteer hours have in common? They’ll all be descending upon the University of Tennessee’s campus for CHIC 2012! What is CHIC? Glad you asked! For starters, it’s an experience like no other. Whether you’ve been before or this is your first time, there’s always something new to discover. From general sessions with life-challenging messages to focus groups allowing you to dig a bit deeper. From opportunities to worship through amazing music to an afternoon in the sun, on the rapids or on the court. From quiet time alone to challenging conversations with friends, new and old. CHIC 2012 will provide a way for you to connect with God, others and yourself on a whole new level. It’s the summer that’ll change your life, and it starts with CHIC 2012!
