Our Vision

Community. Courage. Chi Alpha.


Chi Alpha Campus Ministries cares immensely about developing authentic, close relationships that reflect the love of God both to each other and to those around us. We believe that it’s through caring for one another, building others up, and calling each other to face challenges that we grow as people and in relationship with the Lord. It’s our hope that, when they graduate, each student we come in contact with will go out into the world able to seek out and build relationships with other people, stand in the face of adversity, connect with those who are different from them, and continue to seek understanding, all for the sake of God’s Kingdom. These qualities are best learned in the context of relationship.

So, we provide a space for students where it’s safe but not tame. No matter who you are and where you come from, you will be welcomed, loved fiercely, and challenged to become all that you can be. We encourage you to ask whatever questions you may have, no matter how big or small, so you can grow into a lifetime learner who can stand on your beliefs because you’ve had the courage to face your doubts.

College is a thrilling, adventurous, and sometimes scary and difficult time of life, and we are committed to walking with students through all of its ups and downs, caring for them enough to teach them both how to stand on their own and how to lean on each other and God. We want this for people in all walks of life! So, whether you’re looking for a place to call home and grow in faith or just beginning to ask questions about Jesus, Chi Alpha is for you!
