Rev. Teresa Schwartz
The Chicago Children’s Choir was founded as a ministry of First U in 1963. In 1986, the Choir separated from the church to become an organization in its own right. The choir belonged to the church for 30 years, but in letting go, the church gave the choir to the city—and the world. In some ways, we can only have that which we give away—both in church and in our own lives.
