Chi Alpha Campus Ministries is a Christian outreach to university students throughout the United States and the world. We meet on campus in groups of varying size and style and invite everyone to be a part, regardless of background. These gatherings are informal, infused with music and interaction, and discuss topics from a Biblical viewpoint; everything from relationships to the nature of truth. We meet with God and each other to find and meet the needs of our campuses and communities.
We are a movement of college-age men and women earnestly following Jesus. No, we are not a fraternity or sorority. (We get that question a lot.) Actually, our name comes straight from the Bible:
"We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God." 2 Corinthians 5:20
We’ve shortened the term Christ's ambassadors – or Christou apostoloi in Greek – to the first letters “Chi” and “Alpha” or XA. Our name is a constant reminder we are a part of God’s global mission.

Kentucky Chi Alpha exists to help students at Kentucky's discover Jesus' plan for their lives and share the goodness of God with others along the way. We believe wherever we are, whatever we are doing, we carry God to that place. We want His Name to be known and His Power to be seen.
We are reconciling 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.

Eastern Kentucky University Chi Alpha
Chi Alpha is a community of believers dedicated to equipping students with real, transforming faith. We do this through living a lifestyle of worship and honor to God, and so we meet in both small faith groups called "Connect" groups and large whole group services which we call "Converge" services. In these meetings we have time for worship, discussion, and teaching centered around living out a life of faith in Christ. We believe in a life empowered by the Holy Spirit to be God's witnesses and we do this in multiple ways.
We believe the church is God's declaration of His kingdom coming to Earth and so we live this out through various outreach opportunities in our community; striving to serve the real needs of people. We also strive to see every moment as an opportunity to introduce people to the most amazing thing that has ever happened to us: Jesus Christ. In that our lives, our actions, and our relationships should all point to the one who saved us proclaiming the Kingdom of God until He comes. If you would like more information about anything you have read, check us out at our website ekuchialpha.org, our Facebook page of the same name, orcontact Pastor Ben through email. We would love to have you come be a part of what God is doing at Eastern Kentucky University.

We are focused on transforming our world for Jesus Christ by sharing HOPE to a lost campus.
We have 3 Core Values that drive that purpose into action:
1) Fellowship -- We want students to love hanging out together and building
relationships, this connects them to the church
2) Discipleship -- We want students to grow and learn from each other, this connects them to God
3) Evangelism -- We want students to share His love and invite others to join the journey, this connects them to their purpose
University Of Kentucky Chi Alpha
We exist to connect students with God and each other. We believe the Bible is relevant in our everyday lives and can move us from just hearing and believing about Jesus to actually following and becoming a disciple of Jesus. Our goal is to make Jesus famous and transform students' lives so they can accomplish what they were created for by worshiping God, studying His word, serving people and being a carrier of His presence.

WKU Chi Alpha
Western Kentucky University Chi Alpha
We are a movement of student disciple makers that is producing the spiritual transformation of Western Kentucky University. We accomplish this vision by reconciling students to Christ and making disciples who make disciples through building communities of fellowship, prayer, worship, and evangelism. During the very short window of time our students are at WKU, it is our goal these students would be equipped to:
- Make disciples who make disciples
- Serve in a Spirit-filled church
- Thrive in a Godly marriage (if married)
- Raise Godly children (if they have kids)
- Achieve financial stability
- Influence workplaces, neighbors, and communities with the Gospel
- Further local and global missions efforts
- Have knowledge of Pentecostal theological framework
