Can’t decide between serving on the on-site CHIC Prayer Team and serving in some other way at CHIC? This CHIC, we will do our best to accommodate staff requests for part-time Prayer Team positions. You would work most of your shifts in a role outside the Prayer Team, but would have several shifts throughout the week serving with the Prayer Team. Simply indicate this desire when you fill out your staff skills and interest form to be sent to you following the processing of your adult registration.
The prayer team’s mission at CHIC is to pray for students as well as for those who minister with them.
Members of the prayer team will travel to CHIC with their respective church or on their own. On the first day of CHIC you will have an opportunity to meet the other team members first hand. We will be available to those who need prayer, to pray for specific needs and requests and to pray on behalf of all who are present that God will be glorified and God’s purposes fulfilled. This includes presence at worship, base camps, seminars, presence around campus, and special requests from the CHIC council. We will meet twice a day for group prayer, to check in and receive assignments. The rest of the day we will be spread out across the campus or be present at worship.
The days admittedly start early, end late and require some significant foot travel around the campus. The terrain is hilly and the weather generally hot. However, through your presence and your prayers you will have an opportunity to reach out to many with the hope and assurance of Christ’s love.
In the final months leading up to the event you will pray for CHIC, receive information on team members and join together in a series of conference calls to build community, field ideas, pray and answer questions.
If you’d like to be part of the CHIC on-site prayer team, you will register as a staff person. On the second page of the Adult Application you will mark “yes” to the question: “Have you already been recruited by CHIC staff to volunteer in a non-counselor position?”
Answer “prayer team” for the question: “What position?”
And answer “Steve Burger” for the question: “By whom?”
All prayer team members are required to meet the staff qualifications and fulfill the staff requirements listed on the Adult Application Instruction Sheet. The cost to attend CHIC is $499.00 due by May 8th 2009. This includes housing and your meals while you are on site.
If you have further questions please contact me at email@example.com or feel free to call me at the office at 773-583-0220.
We would be honored to have you serve as a member of the CHIC on-site prayer team, and hope you will be able to join us. Please notify me once you have made the decision to participate as a member of the CHIC prayer team and have filled out the Adult Application.
I look forward to hearing from you.
