FORMERLY KNOWN AS CHIC

UNITE 2021

July 18–23, 2021  |  Knoxville, Tennessee

Since 1956, the name “CHIC” in the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) has been associated with significant moments of decision in the lives of thousands of teenagers. As well, it has fully embodied Covenant youth ministry values. For many Covenanters, the name CHIC brings to mind a moment in life when God captured them and set them on a trajectory to more intentionally follow Jesus.

As we recognize the rich history and impact this movement has had in the Covenant Church, we are also sensing a call for a change in this season.

So we are calling all Covenant churches to gather the younger generation of teenagers together at this unique moment in time to Unite around the purposes of God—which is the new name for this vital movement.

CHIC has always been about community, and now, in this next generation, as we stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us, we join together at Unite 2021.

We have also extended the age range for students who want to attend Unite 2021. Teenagers who complete grades 8-12 in the 2020–2021 school year AND any students who are at least 14 years old by September 1, 2021, are welcome to join us! As always, students may attend a second time if they are completing 12th grade that school year.

(Note: We recognize that each youth leader knows their students best, and some younger students may not quite be ready for this event. Attendance is at the discretion of the youth leader, as long as the students fit the age criteria.)

We hope to see you all at Unite 2021!
