This week, those gathered for CHIC2012 learned a host of new songs to express their dedication to and worship of God. Be sure to download the recordings of these live worship gatherings.

You’ll want to know how the tune goes when your students return home excited to teach you what they have learned. Good news, the rhythm/vocal charts are available in addition to the chords and lyrics.

Check out our Music Page for downloads and charts!

Did you know that the North Park University Gospel Choir is here and ready to sing? Among the group of volunteers from Chicago is a large contingency of Gospel Choir singers.

I’m Dominique Gilliard and I’ll being serving as the “Long Road to Justice” (LR2J) coordinator for CHIC 2012. As a team, we hope that these experiences will foster new attentiveness and knowledge concerning both the injustices that are so pervasive within the world and God’s movement toward correcting these social fractures. We are prayerful that these new insights will enliven the Word of God for students and cause them to respond to these injustices in light of Scripture – acting with compassion, mercy, and justice (CMJ) regarding the societal ills that will be addressed throughout CHIC. The LR2J team is seeking to encourage students by helping them envision themselves individually, as well as the body of Christ corporately, as essential components of societal revitalization. As a planning team, our mission has been to assist in opening the eyes of youth to the necessity for justice and its connectivity to their broader understanding of Christianity and ultimately their own spirituality. From this we hope to catalyze youth into becoming actively involved in issues of CMJ within their own context. [+]
