Coordinating CHIC for Alaska
CHIC is a triennial event put on by the Evangelical Covenant Church where thousands of youth gather for small group Bible study and devotion, large group gatherings with speakers and music, and outdoor recreation. Praise be to God, faithful throughout the ages. CHIC acts as a catalyst in students’ lives, helping them see the big pictures of God’s Kingdom and inspiring them to dive deeper in their faith – together. Through dynamic speakers, relevant messages, small groups, Base Camps, and worship CHIC Inspires students to live transformed lives – even giving of their time and resources to impact local communities and the world.
Because of the vastness of Alaska, where many churches do not have a vocational youth leader, coordinating the logistics (registration and travel) to and from an event like CHIC is a huge undertaking. CYAK works with youth leaders across Alaska to provide logistical support to get as many high schoolers to CHIC as want to go. In 2015, we had over 100 high schoolers travel from communities across the state to Tennessee for a transformational week in their spiritual journey. We consider it a privilege as the Covenant's youth ministry department in Alaska to help make this event a reality for Alaskan high schoolers!
