The Classic Model

The classic model for a CMIT local program is a one campus, one staff team model. All interns learn and grow on one campus and relate to each other daily. The intern goes deep into the culture of one campus and knows one staff team well. The classic model has served Chi Alpha extremely well since the 1970s.

Angelo State University

San Angelo, TX

The CMIT program at Angelo State University is designed to prepare people for a lifetime of ministry through comprehensive training in small group discipleship, theology, and missions. Everything we do is filtered through the lens of relational evangelism.

Our vision is to train and send out well-prepared teams of missionaries to plant ministries across the U.S. and the world. We want to see the multitude of churches in rural West Texas loved and revitalized.

Austin Peay State University

Clarksville, TN

The Campus Missionary-in-Training (CMIT) program at Austin Peay State University is committed to providing a full immersion experience where individuals serious about discipleship can test and develop the tools necessary to produce disciples that make disciples. During the ten-month experience, participants can expect to be stretched, equipped, and affirmed as they are prepared to pioneer disciple-making communities where they are not already on the local university, church context, or around the world.

This commitment will be fulfilled through intentional life-on-life investment and mentoring, guided academic study, and immersive ministry practicum on and off the university in familiar and innovative contexts.

Central Washington University

Ellensburg, WA

This CMIT program has been in existence since 1988. It requires a ten-month commitment (September through mid-June) on the CWU campus. It is designed to train individuals for full-time campus ministry under the supervision of an experienced staff person. It is a time to test your call to campus ministry as well as render service to the work of the Lord for a school year. Thorough biblical education and personal spiritual development is the foundation of this CMIT program.

Colorado State University

Fort Collins, CO

The CSU CMIT program’s focus is on training and raising up Chi Alpha personnel in team pioneering and relational, discipleship-based ministry. CSU staff will share with you everything they learned from pioneering the current ministry at CSU as well as an overseas campus ministry.

Interns will gain invaluable experience through small group leading, practical ministry classes, theology class, and their final CMIT project, which is preparing a five-year pioneering plan for a Colorado campus. Your time here will challenge your mind, sharpen your love for community and teach you how to fight hard for students to be reconciled to Christ. We would love to see you at CSU!

Edinboro State University

Edinboro, PA

Edinboro University is a state school of more than 5,000 students on a rural 500-acre campus. It is on this mission field that CMITs will begin to run with endurance the race that is set before them—the reconciliation of students to Christ.

In the authentic relationships developed within this program, interns will find a family in which to safely grow and an army in which to be called higher spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically. Through intentional, personal coaching and mentoring by experienced campus ministers, hands-on ministry and leadership opportunities, and systematic study of theology and ministry, CMITs will develop the spiritual sensitivity and self-discipline that lead to a greater capacity and competency. 

It is the heart of the Edinboro staff to challenge, support, and equip you as you discover your anointing, follow your calling, and fan into flame the gift of God that is in you.

Helena Chi Alpha

Helena, MT

Like all CMIT programs, interns with Helena XA (HXA) will experience deep formation through a rigorous theological study program, immersive and hands-on ministry experiences, and pastoral and leadership development through one-on-one discipleship. But what makes us different? To start, HXA is the only CMIT program in Montana. Nicknamed the Treasure State, Montana is home to some of the best outdoor experiences the world has to offer. Nestled in the heart of the Rockies and halfway between Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, Helena is home to hiking, swimming, fishing, hunting, skiing and so much more.

Helena is a beautiful place, but the people are pretty great too. HXA seeks to be a group of people growing in real relationship with God and others, so you’re not just an intern with us, you’re an integral part of our community. You won’t just be leading a small group, you will be exposed to every facet of our ministry, every level of our leadership, and many moments of our lives as well. This looks like preaching at our services, debating theology in our classes, leading mission trips with our students, and experiencing lessons taught with our horses. Did I mention we use horses as a discipleship tool in our ministry? XA Equine (XAE) is a unique outreach and ministry opportunity that seeks to cultivate depth, connection, and self-awareness within our students by utilizing horses.

Lastly, we are a ministry committed to innovation. Carroll College is a small, private, Catholic liberal arts college and, since 2019, has been closed to our ministry. So how do you minister on a campus where you are not allowed to have any formal presence? God has been faithful as we have navigated the hurdles, He has led our ministry to lean into the power of relationships, and He has grown our community every year. If you have a desire to pioneer a new campus or go into overseas missions where access is limited, HXA might be a great fit for you. Don’t just learn how to build a ministry when access to the mission field is limited, come and experience it yourself!

University of Illinois – Chicago

Chicago, IL

The CMIT program in Chicago is designed to train campus missionaries to effectively pioneer and build Chi Alpha communities in urban centers. The program’s ten-month immersion into “missionary city life” will equip interns to navigate both the strategic opportunities and unique challenges of serving in a large metropolis. This ministry experience will be a combination of directed Biblical and Theological study, practical ministry experience, and mentoring by experienced campus ministers. 

In a diverse, multi-campus experience, interns will join a citywide team of leaders engaging students at academically elite private schools, art schools, and large public universities. In addition to training in Chi Alpha’s core values (discipleship, student leadership development, prayer, community, and cross-cultural missions), interns will be uniquely equipped to navigate the tough spaces where faith in Christ intersects with justice and reconciliation in all of life and society. As a healthy devotional life, godly character, and authentic discipleship always precede lasting fruit, CMITs will be exposed to our Chicago Chi Alpha DNA which emphasizes the necessity of a strong personal “altar.”

University of North Texas

Denton, TX

God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the called. Students who sense the call of God into ministry and missions must yield to God and allow Him to qualify them; that’s the formation of a minister and a leader. The UNT CMIT is designed to impart Christian leadership to those who sense the Lord’s call to vocational ministry. Every year our CMITs are each given leadership responsibility as they oversee clusters of small groups and lead them in building community, creating outreach efforts, and providing pastoral care to students. Alongside the discipleship from veteran campus pastors, this creates a practical and hands-on experience for future ministers to build the character and skills needed to live out God’s call on their life.

The CMIT is more than just training—it is the formation of a minister. Therefore, we conduct our program with a holistic approach addressing theological, practical, emotional, and relational components of becoming a pastor. As part of our curriculum, we offer an optional second year CMIT track that provides unique experiences and relationships for one of three ministry avenues:

  1. Campus Ministry
  2. World Missions
  3. Church Planting

UNT is a traditional state university of nearly 40,000 that draws a diverse mix of students. Two thousand international students from dozens of nations around the world study at UNT every year. The campus located in a city of 140,000 people on the north end of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.

The University of Vermont is nestled between the beautiful Green Mountains and the shores of Lake Champlain and is home to nearly 13,000 students. Burlington is not only the birthplace of Ben and Jerry’s, but it was also named by Barna as the second most post-Christian city in America. Vermont is consistently ranked as the least churched and least religious state in the nation. Northern New England is home to more than 90 universities and colleges, yet fewer than 25 have any Christian ministry presence.

UVM’s CMIT program will challenge you through theological studies, practical ministry skill development, and character formation. Our goal is to prepare missional leaders to serve in the post-Christian context of New England and the Northeast.

Virginia Tech University

Blacksburg, VA

Virginia Tech is a big-time campus with a small town feel in the mountains of Southwest Virginia. The motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), belongs to 32,000 students and we take it seriously.

The CMIT internship began here in 2016 and continues to flourish each year as we move towards our goal of equipping students to serve on universities campuses in the Southeast, the nation, and beyond in cross-cultural missions. Interns will learn to foster missional communities, preach, teach, reach the lost, disciple, and pioneer domestic and frontier missions through a dependence and reliance on the power of the Spirit.

In addition, growth is emphasized on loving God and others with the fruit of the Spirit, our intellect, and our strength; giving Christ and students our time, our heart, and our very lives. We do this through theological courses and discussions, practice of spiritual disciplines, navigating critical campus ministry issues, and daily CrossFit workouts (bodily training is of some value).

Along the way, an intern learns a greater level of self-awareness, equipping, and Holy Spirit empowerment as they become a part of cultivating a biblically literate community of student believers devoted to worship, prayer, fellowship, discipleship, and mission.

The Hub Model

The hub model for a CMIT program is a multi-campus, multi-staff team model. One campus hosts the CMIT director and serves as the central and administrative hub, while additional campuses serve as satellite sites. Interns are placed on different campuses and come together regularly for classes and district events. This model was first pioneered in urban Chi Alpha ministries over ten years ago.

Idaho State University

Pocatello, ID

Idaho State University is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains making ISU a magnet for those who love the outdoors. Pocatello, Idaho is consistently voted in the top ten outdoor cities in the country because of its unique proximity to Yellowstone National Park, Jackson Hole Wyoming, Idaho wilderness, and the Utah National Parks make it a launching point for adventure.

Chi Alpha was established more then 20 years ago at ISU and has been sending interns into missions and the market place for over a decade. Interns receive a unique ministry perspective at ISU and learn to work as a team member as they are fully included and engaged in every aspect of the ministry. Our goal is to tailor the internship experience for each unique person God sends our way. We believe each person brings a set of gifts and has a specific calling from the Lord.

Our ministry is centered on life-on-life discipleship, is small group centric, and team oriented. If you’re ready to reconcile students to Christ, raise up disciple makers, and are in for an adventure in the Rockies, then we would love to have you be part of the team.

Mountain State – Fairmont State University/West Virginia University

Fairmont, WV

Nestled in the southwest corner of the Northeast these two very different campuses comprise the Mountain State CMIT program. Our primary desire is to grow teams of workers for campus missions for Jesus’ harvest field in the Northeast.

Fairmont State is a 4,000 student commuter school. West Virginia University is home to nearly 30,000 students and is the flagship state school. The two cultures are very different, but the two teams share the CMIT training experience, as well leadership and fall retreats. Small group discipleship, relational evangelism, and a missions trip experience form the core of the intern’s hands-on experience, in addition to a strong connection and service to our local churches. Theological studies, preaching labs, and practical/pastoral ministry training provide the why for what our interns, staff, and students do.

Additionally, each intern is mentored by an experienced staff person throughout the early-August to late-May internship. “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” Join us to reach the most strategic campuses of the most strategic mission field in the world.

Virginia Commonwealth University

Richmond, VA

We are convinced an internship at Richmond Chi Alpha will successfully prepare future Chi Alpha campus missionaries. We believe, due to its diverse student body and urban location, it is well-fit to prepare people to serve on the culture-changing campuses of the American Northeast. Therefore, our primary aim is to prepare people to be eligible to serve as nationally appointed campus missionaries with Chi Alpha Campus Ministries. Our desire is to equip people to serve on the urban universities in the Northeast and in foreign campus missions.

Our internship is a program designed to train individuals in most areas of full-time university ministry. It is much like an apprenticeship in which ministry skills are learned under the supervision of an experienced campus ministry staff person. This is a time when an intern can test his or her calling into full-time university ministry as well as render service to the work of the Lord for a school year.

Each CMIT shall be trained by experiencing ministry in the context of a biblically based campus community of student believers devoted to the development of worship, prayer, fellowship, discipleship, and witness. 

This practical ministry of equipping and supervision shall be combined with a basic biblical education through a directed course of study. In addition, a deliberate focus on personal spiritual formation and godly character shall be fostered within the CMIT’s private walk with God.
