Hi There!

So: We’re Chi Alpha. We’re great, thanks for asking! We don’t have a major – although we are on university campuses all over the world. We’re a network of Christian ministries that look a little bit different on every campus – but here’s what you’re always sure to find: college-age men and women who are at once wrestling to become who they are (through school or work or life experience), and to connect with God. You’ll probably find people who are in all kinds of stages of both pursuits: self-discovery and God-discovery.

If you’d prefer to read more about us, you can dig in to find what we believewhy we existwho we’re sponsored bywhat’s up with our namehow we got here, current (inter)national happenings, and lots of other stuff. But, we’d love to get to the part where we can hang out and be comfortable together – so if you’re ready for that, you might just want to jump to our campus locator to find a Chi Alpha near you. We can’t wait to meet you – awkwardness and all!

The Assemblies of God provides each local campus with support, resources and connectivity to a larger worldwide movement. They also work to equip the leaders of each local XA, both the vocational missionaries associated with each group and the student leaders.


Here is the team that is reaching out through Chi Alpha on the campuses in Pennsylvania and Delaware.
