What I love about the EveryCampus initiative and this vision
is that no one ministry nor its staff can do it alone; this requires trust in
the Lord, in one another across ministries, and in our students, and alumni!

This vision pushed me pray for partners, and this fall, God
called one of my…
In the spring of 2017, the EveryCampus movement was born as an answer to the question, “What could we do together that we could never do on our own?” Over the last three years, we have had the privilege of watching God write a story that is more beautiful and multifaceted than anything we could have envisioned!
From the early
stages of the process, Chi Alpha has been a Kingdom partner and key contributor
in the EveryCampus coalition. As one…
I was a good church kid when I entered the University of Arizona as an eighteen-year-old freshman. My first class was a biology course. The professor immediately polled the class on who believed in evolutionary theory and who believed God created the earth. I realized at that moment that I didn’t have what it took to take the big stand for Jesus outside of the insular environment I had been in for some time.
Following class, I saw posters plastered…

I had the privilege of serving on a mission team to the Caribbean last spring break. One morning before we headed to the elderly home where we were ministering, a member of our team, Brook, told Luana, another team member, and I about a prophetic word she received the night before that we would minister to a quiet man.

Being a part of Chi Alpha allows me to be culturally
enriched as I get to see many different attributes of God’s characteristics
displayed through His people. It has given me the amazing opportunity to catch
a glimpse of what Heaven will look like as I am able to meet students from
different cultures and backgrounds. One of these students is Paola, who
has and is still impacting my life.
Being an international student from Ecuador, Paola was not taught good…
When we become Christians, God welcomes us into His Kingdom and, through Scripture, invites us to duplicate that same welcome to people from all nations.
In the Old Testament, God commanded Israel to reveal to all nations who He was by welcoming the foreigner in their midst. The New Testament brings into sharp focus the reason we welcome: we have been brought from a place of enmity with God into His family—a welcome provided by God through Jesus Christ.
The Son of God required constant prayerfulness and intensive times of focused prayer. To be human, according to Jesus’ example, is to be a creature who needs to be involved in regular, heartfelt prayer times with God, which helps us to enjoy, value, and glorify Him.
Not only that, but prayer is for our own good as well: we should bring our lives constantly back into sync with the values and mission of God’s Kingdom through communication with Him. Even…
As Christians, we all know we should give in every area of our lives: our time, talents, and treasure. It’s not a question of whether or not to give—what matters is the reason why we give.
In 1 Chronicles 29, David understood giving makes an eternal impact, “We are here for only a moment… gone so soon without a trace.” David embraced the fact that we are temporary and what lasts are those things that become part of God’s omniscience.…
We reconcile students to Christ, equipping them through Spirit-Filled communities of prayer, worship, fellowship, discipleship, and mission to transform the university, the marketplace, and the world. This clarion call has served as the marching orders for Chi Alpha since 1993. Taking our mission statement seriously, we had to ask how we could aid this transformation by reconciling students to Christ.
The nearly 22,000 Chi Alpha students represents a potential formidable global missionary force. To change this missionary force from potential…
