The Hebrew word is tov which in addition to ‘good’ means beautiful and working the way itʼs supposed to. In the beginning, creation was tov, and humans were declared very tov. Everything was as it should be. But somewhere along the way things began to break down. The serpent came along and caused division between Adam and Eve. This division continues today. We have arguments; we place blame on others; we have so much division around race, religion, and gender; war is rampant. Clearly, things are not always tov. [+]
The overnight bus trip included movie watching, snack eating, and a little bit of sleep. A stop north of Indianapolis introduced us to our first “Mobile Chapel,” a ministry focused on bringing church to the truck driving and transport industry. At the helm of the trip was David, an excellent bus driver who made such great time on the road that the team arrived in Tennessee before we could even get into a building on campus at UT (necessitating a very early morning breakfast stop at IHOP).

Remember that one? It’s not only true about marketing a product, it is equally true about your experience at CHIC 2012. The very first event you encounter will definitely rock your world! It’s the “Welcome Party.” Both words are true. It is a place for you to be welcomed to CHIC 2012. You matter. You are important to CHIC 2012. You are welcome at CHIC!

“I recently spoke with a youth worker in Iowa who had a great fund-raising idea for CHIC 2012. He figures out how many miles it is from his church to the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. He then divides the total cost for his group to attend CHIC by the miles to figure out what the cost per mile is. With this number, he invites the church to ‘sponsor-a-mile’ or multiple miles. Each mile being between $7-$8, most people sponsor many miles and they get to CHIC pretty quick!”
What’s your best CHIC fundraising idea?
