We are family! (Why our students need a bigger vision of their faith and the church)

This week I am clear across the country to the University of Tennessee for our triennial youth ministry gathering, called CHIC. The acronym is not important, but what the event is, is one of the most important events I do in my student ministry. 

This conference has all the ingredients that are important for a successful and amazing youth conference: There are solid morning seminars that practically help students put feet to their faith. Then there are the over the top activities for every type of kid; including sporting tournaments, bracelet making, spray paint walls, white water rafting, hiking, choir, etc. And to top it off, a world class evening line up.
