By Bob Sickels Pictured from left to right is Bob, Jeffrey, Brook and Luana. Bob, Brook and Luana are students at the University of North Dakota who served on a spring break mission trip to the Caribbean last year. 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…

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 Sevo 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…

Giving: A Reflection of the Lord

Posted by Tom Trask in Chi Alpha Connection and Student
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.…

Go, Give, Pray, and Welcome

Posted by E. Scott Martin in Chi Alpha Connection, Cross-Cultural Missions, Expeditions, feedONE, Student, and XAi
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…

Building Missionaries that Last

Posted by Alex Rodriguez in Chi Alpha Connection, Student, and Training
A long time ago, I was invited to participate in something crazy with somefellow missionaries: ride five century rides (100 miles on a bicycle) for five days in a row. The only thing worse than riding 100 miles is riding 500 miles! Naturally, I declined the invitation. The person inviting me then insisted I ride at least one day. I could experience the ride, become familiar with the course, and the following year I could ride five century rides in…

Increase of Laborers in the Southeast

Posted by Mario Solari in Chi Alpha Connection
As the Southeast Area Director, it has been humbling and exciting to see the explosion of new missionaries and campus ministries throughout the Southeast over the past five years. The Southeast Area Chi Alpha District Directors have stepped up to the plate and lead their respective districts in developing healthy Chi Alpha ministries. Before the culture subtly changed over time for these groups, the task seemed daunting and maybe a bit out of reach. However, with the fervor and faith…

Testimony: Testifying to the Truth of Religious Discrimination

Posted by E. Scott Martin in Chi Alpha Connection
After over forty years of contribution to California State University-Stanislaus, Chi Alpha was derecognized as a student organization in September 2014. The derecognition was ordered and Chi Alpha was kicked off the campus when they refused to accept a policy that denied the local group the right to choose its leaders based on whether they believed in our mission and were Christian. This issue quickly became national news and Chi Alpha under the guidance of Becket Law stepped into the…
