XAi Leadership Intensive Training

Posted by Cynthia Dobbs in Chi Alpha Connection, Cross-Cultural Missions, Training, and XAi
The inaugural XAi Leadership Intensive Training (XAi LIT) launched successfully June 1, 2020. When COVID-19-related social distancing made the historic All Nations international student conference impossible, an online training that would inspire, empower, and train internationals was designed. This training ran over the course of six weeks with students attending online classes and weekly Bible studies where they gained experience in leading a Bible study. Each student was assigned a coach to help them navigate through the unique challenges faced…

Elizabeth's XAi Story

Posted by Brandon Cranor in XAi
I did not want to be a conversation partner. I really didn’t. Spending an hour with someone who had just come to this country and spoke broken English was a terrifying thought. I was afraid I wouldn’t know what to talk about. But Kim (my small group leader) had been encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone, so when Scott (our XAi director) asked me to help out, I said yes. I never knew I could learn, grow,…
