CHI ALPHA CAMPUS MINISTRIES
Chi Alpha Campus Ministries is a Christian campus ministry on universities throughout the United States and around the world. We are a movement of college-age men and women earnestly following Jesus. We are not a fraternity or sorority. We invite everyone to be a part, regardless of background.
We meet on campus in groups of varying size and style. These gatherings are informal, infused with music and interaction, and cover topics from relationships to the nature of truth. We create opportunities for students to meet God, each other, and the needs of the community.
We are sponsored by the Assemblies of God. We encourage students to seek out a spiritual covering and be accountable in their walk with God. In turn, Chi Alpha pastors are accountable to the national Chi Alpha organization and the national organization is accountable to the Assemblies of God. The Assemblies of God has a nearly century-old heritage of reaching the lost with a Biblical message of Jesus.
What's in a Name
In the Bible, the Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 5:20, "We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God." Inspired by this verse we chose the phrase "christou apostoloi," meaning "Christ's sent ones," to represent who we are. The Greek letters Chi (X) and Alpha (A) are the initials of this phrase, which reminds us that we should live to reflect Jesus' life.
