COVID-19 at Yale Chi Alpha

Posted by Sarah Malcolm in Chi Alpha Connection and Student
When the arrival of COVID-19 resulted in students moving home and courses going online, opportunities for face-to-face ministry ceased to exist.How do you measure the life change you’ve become accustomed to seeing in person when everyone has become a square in a box on a screen? Yale Chi Alpha made the same commitment as our brothers and sisters across the nation—to love students regardless of limiting parameters. That resulted in a Tuesday Night Live (TNL) online worship service core groups…

Testimony: Prayer Walking Warriors

Posted by Shelly Scott in Chi Alpha Connection
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! Andie, her friends from Pellissippi State, and a partnering student/staff from Dickinson College, one of the campuses they prayer walked between Knoxville and New York City. This vision pushed me pray for partners, and this fall, God called one of my…

Wave of Partnership

Posted by Dan Allan in Chi Alpha Connection
“I just talked to a live one!” When Ronnie told me this yesterday in the office, it felt like an invitation to ask more questions. Ronnie explained to me she had just talked to a 16-year-old student named Bradyn who is dual enrolled in high school and at his local community college. Bradyn wanted to learn more about what it would mean to start the first campus ministry at his community college in Georgia. Those of us who share a burden…

Kingdom Partners: Doing Together What We Couldn't on Our Own

Posted by Jon Hietbrink in Chi Alpha Connection
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…

Unity of the Spirit

Posted by Everett Martin in Chi Alpha Connection
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…

Testimony: Making Disciples of All Nations

By Bob Sickels 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. Pictured from left to right is Bob, Jeffrey, Brook and Luana. Bob, Brook and Luana are students at…

Testimony: Every Tribe, Tongue, and Nation

Posted by Christina DiGirolamo in Chi Alpha Connection, Student, and XAi
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…

Welcoming the Nations into His Kingdom

Posted by Severin Lwali in Chi Alpha Connection, Cross-Cultural Missions, and XAi
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. In…

A Life of Prayer

Posted by Paul York in Chi Alpha Connection and Student
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…
