This boot camp will give you an orientation on how to strategically begin Chi Alpha based on the unique challenges of your target campus. Through the pre-work and training you’ll leave this time with a clearer picture of how to start a Chi Alpha from scratch. This is ideal for the entire pioneering team, not just the head leader, so bring the whole team for two days of training.

This Pioneering Boot Camp coincides with the Reach the U Institute (RUI) conference and orientation for campus-missionaries-in-training (CMITs).
