A Letter From Our President


: “…[I]f serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourself this day whom you will serve…. [b]ut as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”  -_Joshua 24:15

Our lives are full of choices. In CHoosE, we sing to remind our hearts to choose serving the Lord above ourselves. We sing to remind each other of His goodness. We sing to remind you of His love. We sing because the Lord has put breath in our lungs and a song of worship in our hearts. We sing because our God is singing over us (Zeph. 3:17).

More than just an a cappella group, CHoosE is a family. Built on the radical unity of Christ, we love and serve each other with intentionality – strengthening ourselves for ministry at UVA and beyond. We gather each week in prayer for one another, for our university, and for our world. We invest deeply in one another. Our unity pushes us outward, out to the broken and hurting world, bearing truth and grace through our music, our actions, and our words.

This semester’s theme is “one voice, one mind, one spirit”. Loosely based on Phil. 2:2, we strive to be unified wholly to the glory of God.

Our prayer is that our music offers you moments of rest in a weary world and a reminder to choose the ways of the Lord.

In Love and Grace,
Sarah Ruckle, President 2017-2018
