We believe that God has brought the nations to us so that they can know Him (Acts 17:26-27). International students will come to know Christ through relationship with people who welcome them with Biblical hospitality (Deut 10:14- 19), who love and serve them intentionally (Mark 10:45, Matthew 20:28), and who proclaim the Good News as Christ’s Ambassadors on their campuses and communities (2 Corinthians 5:18- 20). God sees the nations represented on our campuses as the fields which are ripe for harvest (John 4:35), and also as laborers who will be sent into the vast harvest fields of the world (Luke 10:2, Matthew 9:37-38)! Friendship to leadership means that we want to see the international students on your campus  become lifelong disciple-makers (Matthew 28:18-20, 2 Timothy 2:2), who will disciple many others on campus and around the world. Chi Alpha’s goal is to disciple 100,000 international students from friendship to  leadership by loving them, serving them, and proclaiming Christ to them so that they will be  disciples who make disciples of all nations!
