Chi Alpha is a community of young adults, living life together. We’re neither a sorority nor a fraternity, but we do seek to build authentic brother and sisterhood. Our weekly large group services and weekly life groups (Bible studies) create safe atmospheres to explore faith, ask difficult questions, and build meaningful friendships.

Our focus is authenticity. We want students to build a Real Devotional life by spending time in studying Scripture and communicating with God through prayer. We want students to find Real Community by spending meaningful time with the peers in their life groups and “doing life together.” We want students to discover what it means to have Real Responsibility in the Kingdom of God through global missions, relational evangelism, and social justice.
