Growing in Health and Multiplying Ministries

Posted by Paul Austin in Chi Alpha Connection
Driving down a dirt road past a field of golden wheat swaying in the wind always inspires me. When E. Scott Martin shares the next prophetic confirmation of the coming awakening, this is often the picture I see in my mind. We are in the process of preparing for a harvest, which is why pioneering new chapters and creating health among existing chapters is one of our top priorities. Our work to expand Chi Alpha on 400 campuses in five…

Coaching Testimony: Alyssa Stroh

New Director Training has truly raised me up to become so much better of a leader than I would have ever anticipated. Prior to the training, I had very little understanding of what it meant to be a leader and director for Chi Alpha. I barely had enough experience to help me stay afloat for my first year, but not much beyond that. I honestly don’t know if I could have made it long term if I hadn’t gone through…

Strategic Investment in Chi Alpha Growth

Posted by Stefanie Chappell in Chi Alpha Connection
“Strategic Investment in Chi Alpha Growth” Special Forces I have always been fascinated with Special Forces. The members of this exemplary group train for years to learn the skills needed to operate effectively when called upon. The relationships among them are vital to their success—they grow to honor and trust one another implicitly. They are so well versed in the strategy and purpose of the mission that they can adapt their tactics if they run into a problem and still…

Visionizing: Strategizing with the Holy Spirit

Posted by E. Scott Martin in Chi Alpha Connection
I have always been an advocate for being strategic, deliberate, and replicable in ministry. I have frequently discovered our planning relies extensively on our own dreams and vision for ministry, and the pathway to implementation is often our own best ideas. Some people are gifted for structural organization, strategizing, and the execution of those ideas, but when those skills are coupled with the leading of the Holy Spirt, we accomplish God’s vision and plan for ministry. This past January, the…

Student Testimony: Klarissa Guzman

Posted by The National Chi Alpha Ministry Center in Chi Alpha Connection
I grew up in a family that went to church on Sunday but didn’t follow the Christian lifestyle. My mother had anger issues and my father drank excessively, so I was a troubled kid. I also drank, took pills, cut, stopped believing in the Lord, and even participated in other religions like Wicca and Islam. Peer pressure made me feel more lost than ever when I graduated high school, so going into college life and being an adult seemed impossible.…

A Place to Meet with God

Posted by Gary Paschal in Chi Alpha Connection
During my freshmen year in college, I was persuaded to attend my first retreat with Chi Alpha. This retreat provided me with an atmosphere for extended times of worship that allowed me to go deep into loving Jesus and yield to the flow of the Holy Spirit without my daily distractions. That was many years ago, but the encounter I had then drastically challenged and changed my life forever. It is because of that encounter that makes me a strong…

Students are Encountering Jesus

Posted by Jeremy Anderson in Chi Alpha Connection
Amidst hundreds of testimonies from our local campuses in the Central Valley of California, I’d like to encourage you with some remarkable stories.  Carlos was saved and filled with the Holy Spirit! A group of Chi Alpha students from the University of California-Merced grabbed dinner at a restaurant and ran into their classmate, Carlos. After asking the Holy Spirit for the opportunity to share the Father’s love with Carlos, they shared varying words of knowledge with him and one student…

Ministering in Historic Times

Posted by E. Scott Martin in Chi Alpha Connection
I have communicated broadly regarding the prophetic word that began to come forward in May 2016, that we were about to witness the greatest student awakening in history. Along with Chi Alpha, Charisma as well as Fox News have reported on the awakening. Part of this prophetic word is that this will be a student awakening of Kingdom power. A review of earlier awakenings in the U.S.A. reveals that they were marked by supernatural manifestations. I anticipate a fresh, supernatural…
