One week ago, we wrapped up our fall 2016 auditions and callbacks. After meeting so many incredible people and hearing lots of great voices, we found them…

The next CHoosE newbs!!

Meet Alexus, Luke, and MinJoo, the newest members of our family.


If you think they look good, just you wait ’til they SING! Check out their bios under the “current CHoosiEs” tab. They’ll be up soon!

We had such a blast getting to know them better this past week through our “Newb Week” social events. Highlights include ice cream at Arch’s, game night, girls’ and guys’ nights, and our annual scavenger hunt!


Summer Retreat 2016!

After a long summer of work, play, and adventure, we were ecstatic to reconvene for music, food, and fellowship. This year’s summer retreat took place at the Ruckle household in Northern Virginia! It was a joyful reunion and restful week of singing new music, worshipping, laughing, and catching up.

We also held elections for new Sub-Exec positions:

Karsten – Outreach Chair and Alumni Chair

Sarah – Concert Chair and Publicity Chair

Laren – Contact Chair (this is an Exec position!)

Mike – Social Chair

We’re refreshed and ready. Here’s to a great semester!

CHoosE Winter Retreat

After taking a month off from school, CHoosE has finally come back together for winter retreat at the Elzinga Family’s lake residence! Over the course of three days, we worked out administrative details, fellowshipped with each other, and above all, worshipped the Lord for what He has done and what is to come. Below are some highlights from the weekend.
