Testimony: Making Disciples of All Nations

Posted by The National Chi Alpha Ministry Center in Chi Alpha Connection, Cross-Cultural Missions, Expeditions, and Student
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…

Donate Books. Feed Kids.

Posted by Nathan Cole in Cross-Cultural Missions and feedONE
In February 2019 I attended The World Missions Summit in Santiago, Chile where, nestled in the mountains outside of cell phone reception, I was able to spend significant time with some of our campus missionaries from Sam Houston State Chi Alpha. Despite eight hours of college Spanish and growing up in Texas, I still don’t speak Spanish. Thankfully I do understand about 80%…of the colors and numbers!   One of the veterans, Jason G., and I ended up sharing vision over a dilapidated…

Are we Babylonian or Biblical? (Part Two)

Posted by Brian Hargett in Cross-Cultural Missions and Expeditions
I agree with our national director, E. Scott Martin. We are in the nascent stage of a great student awakening. A great student awakening sounds like fruitfulness and multiplication. Some important questions are “Why do we want it?” and “Why would God send it?” Is a great student awakening coming “so that we can make a name for ourselves” or is it so that we can mobilize disciple making students to the ends of the earth? Is our ministry vision…

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…

Are we Babylonian or Biblical? (Part One)

Posted by Brian Hargett in Cross-Cultural Missions and Expeditions
Have you ever considered how closely the Great Commission in Matthew 28 parallels the Genesis Assignment in Genesis 1? “Go and make disciples” sounds a lot like “Be fruitful and multiply.” “Of all nations” sounds a lot like “fill the earth,” and “teaching them to obey everything I’ve commanded” sounds a lot like “and subdue it (the earth.)” Throughout Scripture, we see God’s desire for His people to multiply and spread so the “earth will be filled with the knowledge…

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…

Full Bellies

Posted by Will Klier in Cross-Cultural Missions, feedONE, and Student
On July 16 of this year, I became the father of a teenager and it hit me: in the campus lifespan of a “super senior,” my daughter will be a freshman in college! I remember so distinctly just holding her in my arms for the first time. I can recall even speaking to her while she developed in my wife’s womb. As it’s commonly said, the days are long and the years are fast! My daughter is an amazing young…

Heart Transformation

Posted by Alyssa Stroh in Cross-Cultural Missions, feedONE, and Student
Last year was my first year on campus at the University of Iowa and I had barely given any thought or time to feedONE, Convoy of Hope’s children’s feeding program and Chi Alpha’s compassion arm. With hardly any notice at all, we launched our feedONE month in April that began with a simple dinner for all the students and watched The Waiting List documentary. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room of 20 students. Without even asking to receive…

Saying Yes

Posted by Carl Nalbandian in Cross-Cultural Missions, feedONE, and Student
One of my favorite sayings is, “Every time you say yes to something, you say no to something else.” That’s the way I used to look at feedONE. I knew feedONE was the children’s feeding program championed by Convoy of Hope, and I loved the vision and the mission. But I was so focused on our campus I thought getting would mean saying no to something else. I’ve since learned this isn’t always the case. This year, we made a…
